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

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.

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.
