Latest Update Ramirez homers and doubles in Brewers win Tue Aug, 26, 01:37 AM
Owns both bat speed and the ability to make consistent contact, helping him hit for both a high average and excellent run production. Is clutch and doesn't strike out a lot.
Flaws: : Has been injury-prone throughout his career. Lacks consistency with the glove at the hot corner. Would benefit greatly by taking more free passes but he's a free swinger.
Ramirez has now gone 6-for-9 with three RBI and three runs scored over his last two games as he continues to stay hot for the Brewers down the stretch. The Brewers veteran is now slashing .307/.352/.469 with 14 home runs and 61 RBI through 384 at-bats at the age of 36. There are going to be players at the hot corner that have more upside than A-Ram, but his consistency is along the best at the position, making him a must-start in all formats the rest of the way.
