José Ramírez News
Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez had a day on Wednesday in the 7-0 shutout win over the San Diego Padres, going 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, two runs scored and a walk. Ramirez continues to do it all for his fantasy managers and remains a must-start on a daily basis in single-year leagues. The 29-year-old Dominican is now slashing .285/.355/.551 with a .906 OPS, 25 home runs, 103 RBI, 69 runs scored and 14 stolen bases in 510 plate appearances over 118 games for the Guardians. His 37 doubles lead the league. The four-time All-Star is hitting .275 (22-for-80) with four long balls, 19 RBI and 10 runs scored in 21 games in the month of August.
Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. He also drove in two runs, scored twice, and was hit by a pitch in the contest. It has been an underwhelming month for Ram rez, who is slashing just .242/.292/.333 with one homer, three doubles, four walks, and nine strikeouts in August. However, he does have 14 RBI to his name, and there's no denying that he's capable of breaking out at any moment. With that in mind, he remains one of the more appealing names in fantasy baseball.
Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez is getting the day off on Sunday as the team closes out its four-game series against the Chicago White Sox. Ernie Clement will be covering third base and batting seventh in the game. Ramirez is in the midst of yet another standout season. He's currently second in the American League in RBI with 78, trailing Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees by just one RBI. Ramirez has maintained a career-best 9.8% strikeout rate this year, which ranks in the 99th percentile of the league. He owns a .287/.362/.570 slash line across the season to go along with 19 home runs and 13 stolen bases.
After a brutal first half of the 2019 season in which Cleveland Indians third basemanJose Ramirez hit just .218, fantasy managers did not know what to do with him in 2020. Despite his red-hot second half, Ramirez fell out of the top-20 picks in lots of drafts but paid off immensely for those that rolled the dice on him. The third baseman went nuclear, finishing fourth in the league in homers (17) and 10th in steals (10) while providing a strong batting average (.292) and on-base percentage to boot (.386). A catalyst for the turnaround that happened in the middle of the 2019 season may have been that Ramirez started taking more pitches -- 4.0 pitches per plate appearance in 2019 as opposed to 4.5 in 2020. This led to more strikeouts (16.9%) but also more walks (12.2%) and a much higher barrel rate (10.2%). Heading into his age-28 season, he finds himself once again as a first-round pick, but he has proven to be worth every bit of that cost. Few hitters rival Ramirez's power/speed combination, and the increased walk rate makes him a safe bet for a strong on-base percentage as well. Being the No. 1 hitter in fantasy in 2021 is within his range of outcomes. You can use your late first-round pick on Ramirez with confidence.
