  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Blasts eighth homer

    Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Twins.

    Ramirez's fourth-inning blast briefly tied the game at 1-1, but it was all the Guardians could muster against Joe Ryan and four relievers. This was Ramirez's first homer since April 29 -- he went 12 games without a long ball. The third baseman has added a strong .290/.386/.581 slash line with 33 RBI, 20 runs scored, three stolen bases, eight doubles and two triples through 145 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Steals base Saturday

    Ramirez went 2-for-8 with a double, a walk and a stolen base during Saturday's doubleheader versus the Blue Jays.

    Ramirez notched his third steal of the season during an 8-3 loss in the first game of the twin bill. His double came in the nightcap. The third baseman is 3-for-12 against the Blue Jays during this series. He's slashing .310/.407/.620 with seven home runs, 29 RBI, 15 runs scored and eight doubles in 118 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Four walks during twin bill

    Ramirez went 0-for-6 with four walks, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Padres.

    Ramirez wasn't able to get a hit, but he was still a regular presence on the bases. The third baseman is now 2-for-3 in stolen base attempts this season, with both of his successful thefts coming in the last three games. He's slashing an excellent .318/.419/.659 with seven home runs, 29 RBI and 14 runs scored in 105 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: On base thrice, swipes bag

    Ramirez went 1-for-3 with two walks, a run and a stolen base in a 7-3 victory over the Athletics on Sunday.

    Ramirez reached base in each of his first three plate appearances, walking in the first and third innings and singling in the fourth. The theft was his first of the season as the 29-year-old has been less active on the bases despite a scorching start at the dish, evidenced by a .341/.421/.707 slash line through 22 games. Ramirez's career average of 25 steals per 162 games is a better indicator of his capabilities, though it's a real possibility that he's slowing down with age.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Belts seventh long ball

    Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a home run, double, two walks, three RBI and three runs in a 9-8 victory against the Athletics on Friday.

    Ramirez opened the scoring with a solo shot off Oakland starter Frankie Montas in the first, walked in the third and fifth, scoring on the former, and delivered a two-RBI double and run during a four-run seventh that gave Cleveland the lead. The 29-year-old has been scorching through 20 April games and ranks among the league leaders in many offensive categories, including a league-best 28 RBI and .760 slugging.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Goes deep twice Wednesday

    Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four total RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

    Ramirez got Cleveland off on the right foot with a two-run homer in the first inning and produced another two-run shot in the eighth. The long balls were his fifth and sixth of the campaign and snapped a seven-game homer drought. Ramirez leads MLB with 25 RBI on the campaign and is slashing .353/.416/.735 across 77 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Swats grand slam

    Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

    Ramirez provided the biggest hit in the Guardians' nine-run second inning in the matinee. He received a little rest in the nightcap, going 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk as the designated hitter. Despite the productive twin bill, the third baseman's slash line slipped to .429/.479/.881 with four home runs, 20 RBI, seven runs scored and five doubles in 11 contests.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Homers, stays hot at plate

    Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a two run home run and three RBI in the win over the Reds on Wednesday.

    Ramirez got hit by a Nick Lodolo curveball with the bases loaded in the top of the second inning, driving in Austin Hedges. The third baseman later took Lodolo deep in the fourth inning, driving in two more runs. Ramirez is now up to three homers and an eye-popping 14 RBI through six contests this season. Now locked up with a long-term contract with the Guardians, the 29-year-old appears to be setting the groundwork for another MVP-caliber season in 2022.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Eight total bases Tuesday

    Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a triple, a grand slam and six total RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds. He was also caught stealing.

    Ramirez tripled on a blooper to shallow left-center, the result of Nick Senzel and Tommy Pham colliding in the outfield. His grand slam in the ninth, which broke the game open for Cleveland, was no cheapie. Ramirez is batting .429 in the early going.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Socks two-run bomb

    Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double, three total RBI, three runs scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Royals.

    Ramirez has recorded hits in each of his first three games of the season and was excellent in this one, as he filled out the box score in what was a dominant win for Cleveland. He went yard for the first time in 2022 but already has three extra-base hits, and even though it's still early on the season, he's already gone 5-for-12 with two doubles, a homer, four RBI and three runs scored thus far.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Agrees to $124 million extension

    Ramirez and the Guardians agreed to terms Wednesday on a five-year, $124 million contract extension, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. The deal includes a full no-trade clause.

    Ramirez will still be paid $12 million in 2022 and will automatically have his existing $14 million team option for 2023 picked up as part of the extension, which won't go into effect until the 2024 season. Though Ramirez may not be able to justify a nearly $25 million salary in his age-36 season during the final year of the deal, he's already more than overdelivered on the four-year, $26 million extension he signed with Cleveland in March 2017. In the five seasons since that deal, Ramirez has produced a collective 139 wRC+ while playing 150-plus games in three of those four years, not counting the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign. Though he's now locked in long term with a Cleveland club that could be teetering toward a rebuild, Ramirez still had a compelling case for a top-five selection during fantasy drafts earlier this spring after he finished the 2021 season with a .266 average, 36 home runs, 27 steals, 111 runs and 103 RBI.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Slow progress on extension talks

    Ramirez and the Guardians have made little progress on negotiating a long-term contract extension, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Ramirez's option was exercised by Cleveland in November, so he'll earn $12 million for this season. There's one more option on his current contract, but both sides would greatly benefit by locking in a strong five-tool player long term. Ramirez hit .266/.355/.538 with 36 home runs, 103 RBI, 111 runs scored and 27 stolen bases in 152 games last season, and he enters 2022 as the everyday third baseman as he has for the last six years. He figures to be a bright spot in the heart of the lineup even if the Guardians struggle again this season.
