Jose Ramirez hit a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

Ramirez hit the two-run shot off Tigers starter Michael Fulmer in the second inning. It was his only hit in five at-bats. He's still struggling at the plate out of the gate but has two homers in his last three games after hitting just one through the first 10 games. He's hitting just .152/.291/.348 through the first few weeks of the year.

Jose Ramirez singled and bashed a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Ramirez socked his solo shot in the first inning and that was the lone tally for either team for six frames. The Tigers knotted it up in the seventh but then Roberto Perez but the Tribe back ahead for good with a solo blast of his own. Ramirez is one of many Indians players off to a slow start, but he has one deep twice over the last week.

Jose Ramirez socked a two-run home run in Tuesday's road game against the Angels, his only hit in three at-bats.

Not only was in Ramirez's only hit of the evening, it is his only hit in 18 at-bats (.056) and first two RBI in five games. He is off to a sluggish start, but you can expect him to pick up hit in bunches to right the ship in a hurry. Ramirez is 2-for-5 with a walk and a strikeout in his brief dealings against Wednesday's starter, LHP Tyler Skaggs.
Apr 4 - 3:42 AM

Jose Ramirez went 0-for-3 with two walks in a victory over the Angels on Monday.

The two walks are nice, but Ramirez once again was held hitless, and he owns a batting average of .000. You shouldn't be too concerned considering how much baseball there is left to play, but you have to wonder if there are some lingering issues from his middle finger injury before the season. Assuming he is healthy, he should be back to being one of the better infielders in fantasy baseball shortly.

Jose Ramirez (finger) is expected to be in the Indians' starting lineup on Opening Day.

Ramirez cut his left middle finger on a metal bat rack during the first inning of Tuesday's exhibition game against the Diamondbacks, but it was apparently a fairly minor laceration. Indians manager Terry Francona said Ramirez could have played through it in a regular-season game.
Mar 27 - 6:58 PM

Jose Ramirez left Tuesday's exhibition game against the Diamondbacks after suffering a laceration on his left middle finger.

Ramirez is being called day-to-day for now, but Indians manager Terry Francona should offer up more information once the game concludes. There is at least some risk of the star third baseman being unavailable for Cleveland's first regular-season game on Thursday night in Seattle.
Mar 27 - 4:17 PM

Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's Cactus League win over the Reds.

Ramirez was hit in the ankle by an errant throw earlier in spring, but there's no residual effects here. The infielder is hitting .288 with an .829 OPS in spring games, with a few left to go before the real deal starts. A five-category contributor, he's a firm second-round pick in fantasy drafts.
Mar 25 - 6:42 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona told reporter that Jose Ramirez (ankle) will return to the lineup on Monday.

Ramirez went down awkwardly in Saturday's contest against the Cubs, but he was diagnosed with a bone bruise, which was the best-case scenario. He'll certainly be ready to go before Opening Day, and he'll look to approach the numbers of his breakout season in 2017. Ramirez is worth a selection in the first 25-to-30 picks.
Mar 18 - 2:38 PM

Jose Ramirez left Saturday's Cactus League game against the Cubs due to a right ankle bruise.

Exhale, Ramirez owners. There was some uncertainty after Ramirez stayed down, then walked off the field after he was hit by an errant throw while trying to steal third base, but a bruise is a best-case scenario. Ramirez might sit out a day or two but should be fine for Opening Day.
Mar 17 - 5:42 PM

Jose Ramirez left Saturday's Cactus League game against the Cubs with an apparent injury.

Ramirez was attempting to steal third base and made contact with Cubs infielder Tommy La Stella, also getting hit in the ankle by the catcher's throw. He was able to walk off under his own power, and it wasn't immediately clear what the issue might be. He was replaced by Richie Shaffer. The Indians should have an update soon.
Mar 17 - 5:05 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League tie with the Padres.

The Padres kept the Indians off the scoreboard altogether up until the seventh inning, when Ramirez broke the spell with his two-run homer. It was his first long ball of the spring. The third baseman broke out in a huge way during the 2017 season, when he finished with a .318/.374/.583 triple-slash, 29 homers, 56 doubles, 83 RBI and 17 steals in 152 games played. Outside of steals, all of the above listed numbers represented career bests for Ramirez.
Mar 10 - 6:36 PM

Jose Ramirez went 1-for-2 with a walk on Sunday in a 2-2 tie with the Reds.

His hit was a base knock off of Homer Bailey. Ramirez is coming off what is easily the best season of his career; hitting 56 doubles and posting an impressive .957 OPS for Cleveland in the 2017 campaign. It's tough to expect him -- or any hitter -- to put up these kind of numbers again, but Ramirez is still just 25-years-old, and it's not crazy to think he'll remain one of the best infielders in fantasy baseball for the rest of the decade.
Feb 25 - 6:14 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-2 with two walks, a run scored, and a stolen base in Sunday’s regular season finale against the White Sox.

Ramirez singled and doubled. The 25-year-old had a surprising season in 2016, but he has taken things to a new level this year while batting .318/.374/.583 with 29 home runs, 83 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 107 runs scored over 152 games. Jose Altuve and Aaron Judge are considered the favorites, but Ramirez is a legitimate MVP candidate.

Jose Ramirez went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI on Friday, leading the Indians in a 10-1 rout of the White Sox.

Ramirez also drew a walk and scored a pair of runs in the contest. His two-run double off of Mike Pelfrey increased the Indians' early lead to 3-0 in the second inning. He's having a career-year in the middle of the Indians' lineup, slashing .317/.370/.583 with 29 homers, 106 runs scored, 83 RBI and 16 swipes.
