There may be more major league players looking into LASIK surgery after seeing the rebound by Wilson Ramos this year. He was quoted as seeing the ball much better in the spring and has carried it over to the season. Ramos launched his 14th home run on Sunday and raised his RBI total to 53. He also has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games and in 21 of his last 27. Ramos leads all major league catchers in all three categories of the slash line this year and is on track for a career year.
In an attempt to impress his manager, Trea Turner had a multi-hit game with his third triple in his last five games with two runs scored on Sunday. Turner’s roster spot could be at risk as Ryan Zimmerman will be activated on Tuesday and return to first base which has been filled by Daniel Murphy recently. This shifted Turner to second and now it will have to be seen if “Turner the burner” will get time in the outfield or return to Triple-A. He has hit safely in six of his last seven games with five runs and four stolen bases.
Patriots have signed Sunseri, the fifth-rounder out of Alabama. Sunseri was selected by the New Orleans Saints in 2014. He appeared in nine games for New Orleans before being released by the Saints in April. He recorded five tackles (four on special teams, one on defense) before an arm injury landed him on injured reserve. A knee injury last year led the Saints to waive Sunseri and he spent all of last season on injured reserve after clearing waivers.
The Padres are pleased with what they've seen out of Christian Bethancourt. Austin Hedges is doing well in the minors this season, so it makes sense that they'd want to shop Norris. The 27-year-old has not been great hitting .204/.263/.379 this season and is getting more expensive in arbitration, but there will surely be some teams that view him as an upgrade at catcher. The Astros are rumored to have interest in Norris.
Bethel-Thompson didn't generate any interest after his release earlier this offseason. He'll provide a camp arm behind Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, and Carson Wentz.
