Wed Sep 1522:51Jose Ramirez Collects Three Hits On Wednesday
Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored, two RBI, and a double during a 12-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. The 28-year-old has put together another terrific season, posting 33 HR, 90 RBI, 96 R, and 23 SB with a .258/.348/.539 line across 488 at-bats. Ramirez also has an 11.5% barrel rate, 43% hard-hit rate, and 13.8% K rate all career bests. As long as the three-time All-Star continues to produce on the basepaths, he should remain a first-round caliber player in redraft formats and is still a strong option in dynasty settings.
