The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - SPORTS BRIEFS

OXON HILL, MD. | All-Star catcher Wil­son Ramos and the Tampa Bay Rays were clos­ing in Tues­day night on a two-year con­tract.

The agree­ment was not yet com­plete and would be sub­ject to a phys­i­cal, agent Wil Poli­dor said. The deal, first re­ported by Fox, would be worth about $12.5 mil­lion.

Ramos, 29, hit .309 with a ca­reer-high 22 home runs and 80 RBIs be­fore tear­ing his right an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment on Sept. 25 when he landed awk­wardly while catch­ing a re­lay throw from Ryan Zim­mer­man. Ramos had a pair of op­er­a­tions on the knee in 2012 to re­pair a torn ACL and me­dial col­lat­eral lig­a­ment.
