José Ramírez News
Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez went 2-for-8 with a pair of doubles across Tuesday's doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins. He now has 14 doubles across the month of June and 25 total doubles this season, which ranks third in the majors behind Matt Olson (29) and Rafael Devers (26). The 29-year-old has been nothing short of fantastic this year. Over 69 games, he's slashed .299/.383/.609 with 16 home runs, 12 stolen bases, 63 RBI and 45 runs. He's third in the majors in RBI and fourth in OPS (.993).
Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez (thumb) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against right-hander Joe Ryan and the Minnesota Twins. He'll be batting out of his usual No. 3 spot in the contest while manning the hot corner. J-Ram missed two consecutive games with thumb soreness, an issue that has been bothering him for awhile now. The 29-year-old hasn't allowed the ailment to slow him down when he's been on the field. Across 15 games in June, he's slashing .322/.385/.627 with three home runs, four stolen bases, 11 RBI and 11 runs.
Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez (thumb) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Sunday. He has been dealing with thumb soreness for quite some time, so the Guardians will get a precautionary MRI. The team has not received the results yet, so fantasy managers might have to wait a day or two. Ramirez has been playing through this issue for a week or so. Hopefully, this isn't an issue that will require surgery. Fantasy managers will have to patiently wait for more information.
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.
