Wilson Ramos went 3-for-3 with a homer last night and is now hitting .267 with a .331 on-base percentage and .443 slugging percentage in 109 games for the Nationals.
Those certainly aren’t jaw-dropping raw numbers, but Ramos’ production adds up to an adjusted OPS+ of 112 and that’s damn impressive for a 23-year-old rookie catcher.
In fact, during the past 25 years here’s the complete list of every 23-year-old catcher to post an OPS+ above 100 in 400 or more plate appearances:
YEAR PA OPS+ Joe Mauer 2006 608 144 Buster Posey 2010 443 129 Jason Kendall 1997 572 114 Craig Biggio 1989 509 114 WILSON RAMOS 2011 420 112 Russell Martin 2006 468 101
That’s it. That’s the whole list. Oh, and Ramos has also thrown out 34 percent of steal attempts.
I think I speak for my fellow Twins fans when I say: Sigh.
