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. Aug 30 - 1:09 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.

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.

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

Indians optioned INF Jose Ramirez to Triple-A Columbus.

Ramirez really struggled after joining the Indians earlier this month, hitting just .080 (2-for-25) with zero extra-base hits and one RBI in 11 games. The Indians have called up Justin Sellers to take his place on the active roster.
May 20 - 3:19 PM

Jose Ramirez had another rough day at the plate in Friday’s loss to the Athletics, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.

The young infielder has yet to make the most of his opportunity to play while Jason Kipnis is on the disabled list, hitting just .100 (2-for-20) with one RBI. He’s plenty talented, but it doesn’t look likely that he’ll have any fantasy value this season.

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

He'll provide some infield depth while Jason Kipnis (oblique) is out. Ramirez was batting .319/.365/.484 with four homers, 17 RBI and eight steals over his first 23 games at Triple-A.
May 2 - 2:42 PM

Jose Ramirez (thumb) recently tweaked his ankle while running on a treadmill.

It's obviously no ideal, but Ramirez's recovering from left thumb surgery is the bigger concern at this point. The 21-year-old will play in a "B" game Tuesday, but it's not clear when he'll be ready for Grapefruit League action.
Mar 2 - 12:12 PM

Jose Ramirez (thumb) is 7-10 days away from taking batting practice.

Coming back from to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, Ramirez has been taking flips in the batting cage as he works his way toward batting practice. He should have time to get ready by Opening Day but isn't a real candidate to crack the big league roster.
Feb 17 - 8:27 PM

Jose Ramirez (thumb) is one week away from starting to swing a bat.

Ramirez underwent surgery in December after tearing a ligament in his left thumb during winter ball. The 21-year-old will likely be a bit behind at the start of spring training.
Jan 29 - 12:45 PM

Jose Ramirez underwent left thumb ligament reconstruction on Wednesday and will be sidelined for 8-12 weeks.

Jose Ramirez is likely facing surgery after injuring his left thumb in winter ball.

Ramirez, 20, spent most of the 2013 season with Double-A Akron. He got a taste of the big leagues as a September call-up, hitting .333 in 12 at-bats. The expectation is that he will be recovered by the middle of spring whether he goes under the knife or not.

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Double-A Akron.

It’s a quick ascent for the 20-year-old to the big leagues who successfully made the jump to Double-A this season. He’ll has the ability to handle three infield positions defensively and has displayed above average speed, swiping 38 bases in 113 games at Double-A this season. He’ll be a nice addition to the Tribe’s bench for the remainder of the season.
