Jose Ramirez went 2-for-3 with two walks and two steals in the Indians' 4-3 victory over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Ramirez was hitting .185 with an ugly .237 OBP before reaching four times tonight. At least he is 8-for-9 stealing bases, because he never figures to hit very much.

Jose Ramirez had an RBI double and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Ramirez came through with the run-scoring double in the fifth inning, proving to be the game-winning RBI. The stolen base was his sixth of the season in seven attempts. He's needed to contribute in other ways, as he's hitting a paltry .185/.237/.250 on the year.
May 19 - 11:52 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, two runs scored, and two stolen bases Thursday against the Astros.

That's called filling up the boxscore nicely. The 22-year-old Ramirez hit .262/.300/.346 with two homers, 17 RBI, and 10 stolen bases over 68 games with the Indians last season and should do fine as a stopgap until top prospect Francisco Lindor is deemed ready for the majors. He's a decent option in deeper fantasy formats if you need some speed.
Apr 9 - 6:07 PM

Jose Ramirez struggled in Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.

Ramirez is now hitting .250 (12-for-48) in Cactus League play. He'll begin the season as the Tribe's everyday shortstop, but if he struggles to hit in the early going, Francisco Lindor could quickly get the call from Triple-A to replace him.
Mar 27 - 6:59 PM

Jose Ramirez had two hits in four at-bats on Monday as the Indians lost to the Royals.

Ramirez is now hitting .345 (10-for-29) on the spring. He'll start the seaso nas the Indians' everyday shortstop, but Francisco Lindor will eventually supplant him. Ramirez could still make himself useful to the Indians as a utility player.
Mar 16 - 6:50 PM

Jose Ramirez blasted a solo home run in the second inning on Friday, powering the Indians to a 1-0 victory over the Rays.

Ramirez tagged Chris Archer with a solo shot to right field in the second inning, which would wind up being the only run scored in an extreme pitcher's duel. He has taken the reigns of the shortstop position since trading Asdrubal Cabrera away, but has hit just .249/.291/.332 with two homers and 16 RBI. He's merely keeping the seat warm for Francisco Lindor.

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

Ramirez had an RBI single in the third inning before adding a sacrifice fly in the sixth. The two RBI gives him 14 RBI on the year. The 22-year-old is hitting .251/.293/.321 and has served as the Indians' everyday shortstop for the past two months.

Jose Ramirez finished 3-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Astros.

Ramirez scored both of the Indians' runs, touching home for the tying run in the ninth on a Carlos Santana single, and scoring the go-ahead run in the 13th on a Mike Aviles sacrifice fly. Ramirez had been held to just three hits in his previous 23 at-bats entering the contest, and still sports a mediocre .254/.299/.328 slash line on the season.

Jose Ramirez went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and is hitless in 10 at-bats in the series against the Astros.

The Indians were too cheap to promote Francisco Lindor, so Ramirez will finish out the season at shortstop, even though he hasn't proven to be any kind of threat at the plate. He's currently hitting .246/.293/.318 in 195 at-bats.
Wed, Sep 17, 2014 10:37:00 PM

Jose Ramirez tallied three hits, including a double, in five trips to the plate, but the Indians suffered a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

Ramirez now has three three-hit games out of nine so far in September. The other six have been oh-fors. The shortstop was coming off of a decent August showing and now owns an improved .256/.298/.339 slash line with eight stolen bases in 189 plate appearances.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 10:26:00 PM

Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a stolen base, an RBI, and two runs scored in Wednesday's 7-0 win against the Tigers.

Ramirez finished out the month of August on a hot streak, but went hitless in both games to begin September. He got back on the horse on Wednesday in a big way. Despite the stretch of good hitting, Ramirez has a meager .259/.303/.336 slash line with six stolen bases. The shortstop is not worth looking at other than in AL-only leagues.
Wed, Sep 3, 2014 09:59:00 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, two runs scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Royals.

Ramirez continues to swing a hot bat since taking over as the starting shortstop following the Asdrubal Cabrera trade. He's now hitting .400 (14-for-35) over his last eight games. The 21-year-old has some speed, but he's still mostly an option in AL-only leagues.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 01:09:00 AM

Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with his first career home run in a win over the Yankees on Saturday.

It was two-run shot against Brandon McCarthy in the top of the second inning. Ramirez also stole a base. The 21-year-old is now batting .205/.256/.260 through his first 26 games this season. He has seen steady playing time at shortstop since the Asdrubal Cabrera trade, but we're not expecting much fantasy value.
Sat, Aug 9, 2014 04:41:00 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

Called up earlier in the day as a reinforcement for Asdrubal Cabrera (back), Ramirez hit second in the batting order and drove in the only run of the day for the Tribe. He should start a shortstop as long as Cabrera is out, but Cabrera has a shot to return as soon as Thursday.
