Jose Ramirez notched two hits in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

The two-hit effort raised his average from .333 to .385. Michael Brantley's shoulder injury has allowed Ramirez to see more playing time and so far he's taken full advantage of it. He's struck out just once in his 13 at-bats this season. As good as Ramirez has been, fantasy owners may want to pump the brakes. The 23-year-old is just a .243 career hitter and four of his five hits this year have been singles.
