2017 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

If we simply combined Ramirez's 2014 and 2015 production, we all would have seen 2016 coming, right? Well, except his batting average would have been around .240 instead of the .312 he hit last season...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Ramirez opened the season as the Tribe's starting shortstop but struggles at both the plate and in the field got him shipped out to Triple-A Columbus two months into the season. He was hitting .176/.243/.235 at the time of his demotion despite a respectable strikeout (13.8%) and walk (7.5%) rate that was undermined by a .200 BABIP mark. A .293/.354/.408 mark in 44 games earned him a promotion back to Cleveland when Jason Kipnis landed on the DL in August and he saw time at second base, third base and left field upon his return. He rewarded the Indians with a .259/.337/.438 line over his last 40 games, dropping his strikeout rate (8.2%) and bumping up his walk rate (10.4%) along the way. Barring a trade, Ramirez is positioned to serve as a backup infielder in Cleveland for 2016.

2015

When Asdrubal Cabrera was traded away, many were surprised that Cleveland did not call up uber-prospect Francisco Lindor to see what he could do at the big league level. Ramirez quickly showed why that was not necessary. At the plate, he held his own despite his youth and swiped 10 bases in 11 tries, but Ramirez really shined in the field. Slash and dash is the name of the game for Ramirez while he looks over his shoulder to see what Lindor is up to on the farm. He's a nice late-round speed source for AL-only players, while mixed leaguers can pick him up in the reserves.

2014

The Indians have a plethora of middle-infield prospects and it's easy to overlook a guy like Ramirez as a result. He received a short look with the Indians in September to give the team some speed off the bench, but he spent the rest of the season at Double-A Akron as a 20-year-old, hitting .272/.325/.349 with 38 steals. It certainly wasn't as impressive as his 2012 season (.354/.404/.465), but keep in mind that he skipped High-A entirely. He doesn't strike out much and has a decent enough eye at the plate to take full advantage of his speed. Ramirez won't hit for power, but his speed makes him an intriguing fantasy prospect at the keystone should he find his way into a situation where he's no longer blocked by Jason Kipnis.
