Mike Puma of The New York Post is reporting that the interest in veteran backstop is “Scarce”. Ramos is in the first half of a two-year deal worth $19M and has seemed to pick up a lot of criticism after both deGrom and Syndergaard requested Nido as their personal catcher.
“There is not a big market right now for catching and his contract is going to impede that even more,” a Major League talent evaluator said.
I said it before and I’ll say it again… Nido as deGrom’s and Syndergaard’s personal catcher works out perfectly, giving “The Buffalo” enough time to rest his knees and provide the maximum amount of production when he does play. Let’s keep in mind, we signed him to catch roughly 60% of the games.
Ramos is currently batting .267/.345/.396 with nine home runs and 43 runs driven in.
