The Washington Nationals think C Wilson Ramos is prepared to start 125 games or more in 2014, with Cs Jhonatan Solano and Sandy Leon backing him up. "I don't think he needs any more regular time off than any other front-line, full-time catcher," general manager Mike Rizzo said of Ramos. "He can play regularly. I don't know what the average everyday catcher caught … what, about a 125-128 games? I think he can take on that load. And if that's the case, we feel good about what we've got as our backups." Ramos hasn't caught more than 106 games in a single season in his career and has been limited to 101 games in the last two seasons combined.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos' return will knock down Kurt Suzuki's playing time. Johnson already is looking forward to having Ramos' bat, which is more of a threat in the lineup than Suzuki's, back.
