Ramirez is having a disappointing encore to his first All-Star bid a season ago, hitting just .236 with seven home runs, 38 RBI, 31 runs, 14 steals and a .607 OPS.
But he has come on recently, batting .284 with 11 extra-base hits, 11 RBI, nine runs since the All-Star Break. Ramirez also has five home runs since the break, which is only behind Houston Astros’ Carlos Correa among AL shortstops.
With the recent hot streak, the White Sox shortstop has already been added in 12.5 percent of ESPN leagues, but he is still owned in just 52.1 percent of leagues. He is a worthy add for any fantasy baseball owner in need of a shortstop.
