Jose Ramirez went 3-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored in Friday's win over the Yankees.
Ramirez was making the start at second base Friday while Jason Kipnis was getting a breather in the DH spot. The 22-year-old is hitting just .211/.285/.291 this season, though he has swung the bat a little better this month. Still, he's not going to do much for fantasy owners unless he's stealing bases.

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

Ramirez lost his shortstop job when Francisco Lindor was promoted but should see some time at second base while Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is out. He's hit only .176/.243/.235 in the majors this season.
Aug 3 - 6:36 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi writes that Jose Ramirez is an "intriguing trade possibility."

Ramirez has batted just .176/.243/.235 with one home run and eight RBI in 173 plate appearances with the Indians this season, but he's a strong defender and has swung the bat well in Triple-A. The 22-year-old also offers good speed. He's blocked by Francisco Lindor at the major league level, but the Indians should get some calls from teams in need of a shortstop.

Indians optioned INF Jose Ramirez to Triple-A Columbus.

Ramirez has batted just .176/.243/.235 with one home run and eight RBI in 173 plate appearances this season for the Tribe. The 22-year-old middle infielder has posted very good numbers at the Triple-A level and should at some point become a major league regular.

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

In 170 plate appearances earlier this year, Ramirez slashed a hugely disappointing .180 /.247/.240 with one homer, eight RBI and a 24/13 K/BB ratio. He's been destroying the ball at Triple-A with a .892 OPS, so perhaps things will go better this time around, even if at-bats will be more sparse initially.

Indians optioned INF Jose Ramirez to Triple-A Columbus.

The 22-year-old opened the season as the team's starting shortstop, but has hit just .180/.247/.240 with one homer, eight RBI and a 24/13 K/BB ratio in 150 at-bats on the season. No word yet on the corresponding move.
Jun 7 - 5:24 PM

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.
May 20 - 11:52 PM

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.
Fri, Sep 19, 2014 12:44:00 AM

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.
