Jose Ramirez launched a two-run shot and scored a pair of runs in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Ramirez took Phil Hughes over the boards in the third inning, extending the Indians' lead to 5-2 at the time. That was after he had singled and scored in the first inning. Moving over to second base for a while to fill in for Jason Kipnis (shoulder) certainly hasn't impacted Ramirez's offense, as he sports a blistering .365/.417/.654 batting line, four home runs and 15 RBI in his first 14 games.

Jose Ramirez enjoyed a monster game against the Tigers on Saturday, finishing 4-for-4 with two home runs, six RBI and three runs scored in the Indians' 13-6 win.

A pair of three-run bombs did the damage, the first off Tigers ace Justin Verlander in the first inning and then again off reliever Anibal Sanchez in the eighth. He also had a pair of singles and a walk, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. Few are hotter than the 24-year-old, who is now 9-for-13 in his past three games. The great stretch has raised his overall line to .341/.404/.610 through the season's first two weeks.

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

It's been a rough start to the year for the 24-year-old, who doubled his hit total with Saturday's output. He's also only manage to score one run to date. We've seen that he's capable of more, and perhaps Ramirez can use Saturday's game as a springboard.
Apr 9 - 12:44 AM

Jose Ramirez reached base four times and scored a pair of runs Wednesday in the Indians’ Cactus League win over the Reds.

Ramirez paced the Tribe with three hits including a one-out double in the fifth. He scored later in the same inning on a two-run blast by Brandon Guyer. Ramirez has swung a hot bat this spring, collecting a .314 average over 51 Cactus League at-bats. The 24-year-old recently put pen to paper on a five-year, $28 million extension.
Mar 29 - 7:06 PM

Indians signed INF/OF Jose Ramirez to a five-year, $26 million extension.

The agreement was reported late last week and it's now official. The extension includes two club options at $11 million (2022) and $13 million (2023), so the deal could max out at $50 million. Ramirez is coming off a breakout 2016 where he batted .312/.363/.462 with 11 homers, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases over 152 games.
Mar 28 - 12:24 PM

The deal will also include two club options at $11 million and $13 million respectively. In total, the deal could be worth more than $50 million over the six years and keep Ramirez in Cleveland through the 2023 season. Ramirez hit .312/.363/.462 with 11 homers, 76 RBI and 22 swipes during a breakout 2016 campaign.

Jose Ramirez went 1-for-3 with a double in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League contest against the Rangers.

Ramirez's double was his sixth such hit of the spring. He offers plenty of fantasy upside, having broken out for a .312/.363/.462 triple-slash with 11 homers, 76 RBI, 22 steals and 84 runs scored in 152 games played. He could potentially gain eligibility as a second baseman should the team shift him over to account for the shoulder injury of Jason Kipnis. That eligibility would depend on just how long Kipnis is out of commission.
Mar 18 - 5:58 PM

The Indians are considering moving Jose Ramirez to second base to fill in for the injured Jason Kipnis (shoulder).

If they did that, they would likely install Giovanny Urshela at third base. Second base was Ramirez's primary position in the minors and he's played it some in the majors, too, so the position switch wouldn't be a big deal. The club could also use Michael Martinez and/or Erik Gonzalez at second base. Kipnis' injury doesn't look like a long-term thing, but Ramirez could wind up playing second base enough to gain eligibility there in fantasy leagues.
Mar 14 - 6:39 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI and a run scored Monday against the Brewers.

Ramirez had a sacrifice fly, an RBI single, and a double. The 24-year-old broke out last year by delivering a .312/.363/.462 batting line while amassing 11 homers, 76 RBI, 22 steals, and 84 runs scored over 152 games. His across-the-board ability should make him an attractive fantasy target again in 2017.
Mar 6 - 8:23 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday that Jose Ramirez is his third baseman.

Francona hasn't ruled out Ramirez seeing some time at shortstop during camp, but putting him in left field isn't part of the plan right now. Assuming Michael Brantley misses the start of the season, Brandon Guyer and Abraham Almonte are among the options for left field.
Feb 15 - 2:43 PM

Indians GM Mike Chernoff did not rule out the possibility that the team shifts Jose Ramirez off of third base.

"He was so good at third base both offensively and defensively," Chernoff said. "But he’s a natural second baseman, and can play shortstop and the outfield. It gives us a lot of options, and opens up a lot of possibilities." Ramirez appeared in games at second (six games), third (103 games), shortstop (four games) and left field (48 games) last season.

Jose Ramirez clubbed his first postseason home run as the Indians fell to the Cubs in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night in Chicago.

A breakout star offensively in the regular season, Ramirez blasted a Jon Lester offering into the seats in left field to open the scoring in the second inning. Their lead would prove to be short-lived though, as the Cubs struck back for three runs in the fourth inning. Ramirez finished the night 1-for-4, the final two outs being recorded by Cubs' closer Aroldis Chapman.

Jose Ramirez will hit fifth in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Marco Estrada is on the hill for Toronto, so Indians manager Terry Francona is using his standard lineup against right-handers. The only change is that Carlos Santana is at first base while Mike Napoli will DH. Ramirez has just one hit in 13 at-bats during the ALCS. The full lineup for Cleveland: Santana 1B, Jason Kipnis 2B, Francisco Lindor SS, Napoli DH, Ramirez 3B, Lonnie Chisenhall RF, Coco Crisp LF, Tyler Naquin CF, Roberto Perez C. Ryan Merritt is starting for Cleveland as they try to punch their ticket to the World Series.
