Jose Ramirez slammed his 22nd homer Wednesday in the Indians’ win over Chicago.
Advice: Ramirez got Cleveland on the board with a three-run bomb in the first inning. He also walked and stole a base in the fifth before scoring on Yonder Alonso’s RBI double. Ramirez was intentionally walked in the sixth and scored later in the frame on a wild pitch by Bruce Rondon. The 25-year-old now ranks second in the AL in homers (22), fourth in RBI (50), fourth in slugging (.611) and fourth in OPS (1.002). He’s right there with Mike Trout and Mookie Betts in the AL MVP race.
Jose Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Twins.
Advice: Ramirez went yard for a solo shot off Fernando Romero with one out in the first inning, just one batter after Francisco Lindor cracked a leadoff dinger to open the frame. It would more or less all be downhill for the Indians from that point forward, as they managed just one run for the rest of the game. For his part, Ramirez is slashing .292/.384/.614 with 21 home runs and 47 RBI in 68 games played. He's homered in two of his last three games and has now hit safely in nine consecutive contests.

He is doing his best to prove that his breakout 2017 campaign was no fluke, slashing a monstrous .292/.384/.611 with the aforementioned 20 long balls, 46 RBI and eight stolen bases.
