Report: Indians option Jose Ramirez to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) The Indians have optioned shortstop Jose Ramirez to Triple-A Columbus, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Ramirez has started just one of the last five games at shortstop after serving as the team's starter at the position for much of the season. He has hit just .180/.247/.240 with one home run, eight RBI and eight stolen bases in 150 at-bats.

Mike Aviles made his 14th start at shortstop on Sunday and is likely the short-term answer at the position. However, the team could promote top prospect Francisco Lindor to the majors as well. Lindor has hit .269/.342/.393 with two home runs, 21 RBI and eight stolen bases in 201 at-bats with Columbus.


Indians start SS Mike Aviles over Jose Ramirez again Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) It appears that 22-year-old Jose Ramirez has lost his hold on the starting shortstop job for the Indians. Veteran Mike Aviles is in the lineup again Friday night as the team begins a series against visiting Baltimore.

Ramirez has started just once since May 31. His batting average has not floated above .200 since April 24.

Aviles owns a decent slash line of .274/.333/.421. With super prospect Francisco Lindor not ready offensively and still toiling at Triple-A Columbus, Aviles could remain the starter for quite some time.


Michael Bourn, Jose Ramirez not in Indians' lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Two regulars are not in the starting lineup for the Indians' game on Sunday. 

Center fielder Michael Bourn gets a rest after five straight starts in center. He's replaced by Michael Brantley, who gets his sixth start in center. 

Jose Ramirez sits after 12 straight starts at shortstop. Mike Aviles replaces him, batting ninth. 


Indians' Jose Ramirez swipes two bases in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez went 2 for 3 with two walks, two runs scored, one RBI and two stolen bases in his team's 4-3 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Ramirez hasn't been a force at the plate for much of the season but turned things on against the White Sox, going 5 for 10 with three walks and three stolen bases in the last three games. He broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI single in the seventh inning and his team didn't relinquish the lead over the remainder of the game.

"He looks like he's starting to play with some confidence," manager Terry Francona said, per Northeast Ohio Media Group. "His energy rounding the bag at first ... he looks like the Jose we became really fond of last year. That's very welcome.

"His batting average (.198) is going to be low for a while, but if he starts playing like that it will give us a huge lift."

Ramirez has hit .198/.260/.261 with one home run, seven RBI and eight stolen bases in 111 at-bats.


Indians SS Mike Aviles could supplant Jose Ramirez as starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Veteran Indians utility man Mike Aviles could be destined to take over the starting shortstop job, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Aviles is currently on the family medical emergency list after his daughter was diagnosed with leukemia, but he should be back this weekend.

He would replace struggling Jose Ramirez, who would be sent to Triple-A Columbus for steady work. Ramirez is batting .179.

"I'm encouraged by the way Jose continues to work, both offensively and defensively, to try to improve his performance," said general manager Chris Antonetti. "But it's been a struggle for him. He's a young player that's going through an extended struggle in the major leagues in an environment where there's high expectations for team success."

Ramirez has admitted that, though he remains confident, he's not the same player that helped spark the team following the 2014 trade of Asdrubal Cabrera.

His potential demotion would thrust Zach Walters into the backup shortstop role.


Antonetti: Super Two status no factor in that of Francisco Lindor


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti has claimed that preventing premier shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor from reaching Super Two status is not why he has yet to be promoted from Triple-A Columbus, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

The struggling Indians are struggling partly because current shortstop Jose Ramirez has been weaker defensively than expected and a disaster offensively. He has three extra-base hits all year and owns a slash line of .179/.222/.238.

The 21-year-old Lindor, however, has not been tearing it up for the Clippers. He has started slow at every level and the same has held true in 2015. He does have a six-game hitting streak, but that has served to raise his average to just .256.

The Indians have claimed that Lindor needs more seasoning in the minors.


Indians SS Jose Ramirez suffering through growing pains


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Shortstop Jose Ramirez was one of the pleasant surprises for the Indians last season, but according to manager Terry Francona, the youngster is "pressing" this year on both offense and defense, per MLB.com. 

Ramirez's error in Tuesday's loss marked the sixth miscue in 24 games played for Ramirez, who made only four errors in 56 games last season. At the plate, Ramirez is hitting just 1-for-24 against left-handed pitching, earning him a seat on the bench. 

"He used to walk around like he owned the field," Francona said. "And the one thing we always talked about so much was his clock. Right now, I think he's definitely pressing a little bit, and I understand it."


Zach Walters rests Jose Ramirez at short for Indians


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Indians infielder Zach Walters gets his first start of the season at shortstop on Sunday. 

Walters replaces Jose Ramirez, who has started 23 games at short this season. He'll bat ninth in the order. 

The Indians are -160 money-line favorites at home against Minnesota. 


Indians manager Terry Francona loads up on lefties Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) With a right-hander slated to toe the rubber for the Royals on Thursday, Indians manager Terry Francona has produced a heavy lefty-hitting lineup.

David Murphy returns to the starting lineup as the designated hitter, while Nick Swisher gets a rest after playing in two straight since returning from a DL stint.

Michael Bourn, who will be benched against lefties for the near future, was back in the lineup batting seventh and playing center field. 

Switch-hitter Jose Ramirez slides in at shorstop to replace Mike Aviles. The Indians' lineup contains just one natural right-handed hitter, catcher Roberto Perez.


Indians trying to be patient with Jose Ramirez


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Despite struggling to open the season, the Indians want to be patient with shortstop Jose Ramirez, reports MLB.com.

"I would encourage [fans] to take a look at Jose Ramirez's body of work," Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said, per MLB.com. "Not only what he did last year at the Major League level, but the way he played and performed throughout our development system, because he's a guy that's produced at each level and played very well at each stop he's been at -- including the Major Leagues."

Ramirez is hitting .196 with one home run in 51 at-bats this season and the team has prospect Francisco Lindor waiting in the minor leagues.

"Admittedly, he's had a rough start to the season -- offensively, especially -- but he's the same guy that came up last year, struggled initially and then figured things out the second time and performed pretty well and was a big part of our team's success in the second half," Antonetti said. 


Indians' Mike Aviles in, Jose Ramirez out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Indians infielder Mike Aviles is in the starting lineup Sunday, batting second and playing shortstop in his team's matchup with the Tigers.

Aviles is seeing just his second start of the season at shortstop, as most of his work has come in the oufield. He'll take the place of Jose Ramirez, who had started 10 straight games coming into Sunday.

The Indians have also made a change at the top of the lineup, moving second baseman Jason Kipnis to the leadoff spot. Kipnis and Aviles batted 1-2 in the team's last start against a southpaw, and lefty Kyle Lobstein is on the mound of the Tigers Sunday. Center fielder and typical leadoff man Michael Bourn will bat ninth.

The Indians are road favorites (-115) in Detroit Sunday.


Indians' Jose Ramirez yet to find success vs. lefties


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez is just 1 for 13 with one walk against left-handed pitchers this season.

Ramirez hasn't put up great numbers overall but has been particularly bad against lefties while hitting .273/.304/.455 with one home run in 22 at-bats against right-handers. The Indians are squaring off against lefty John Danks Monday.


Indians' Jose Ramirez homers, steals two bases Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez went 2 for 4 with a walk, a solo home run and two stolen bases in his team's 5-1 win over the Astros Thursday.

Ramirez, the team's starter at shortstop, was 0 for 6 in his first two games before breaking through Thursday, hitting a fifth-inning home run to extend his team's lead to four runs. He'll try to keep rolling this weekend against the Tigers.


Jose Ramirez succeeding in starting role for Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Indians rookie shortstop Jose Ramirez has flourished in the second spot in the lineup since taking over the starting job upon the trade that sent Asdrubal Cabrera to Washington.

Ramirez, whose production might be keeping premier prospect Francisco Lindor at Triple-A for now, is 35 for 123 since returning to the team in late July for a .282 mark. He has scored 14 runs during that time.


Jose Ramirez makes first tater a memorable one Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Indians rookie shortstop Jose Ramirez not only slammed his first career home run Saturday, but it was a game-winner in Yankee Stadium.

Ramirez blasted off to right for a two-run job in the second inning. He added two singles to push his average up to .205.


Jose Ramirez only bright spot for Cleveland on Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Indians just-promoted shortstop Jose Ramirez was easily their premier offensive player Wednesday in Minnesota - but that's not saying much.

Ramirez doubled in a run in the third inning and finished with two of their five hits. In the process, he matched his hit total in 18 at-bats in a previous stint this year with Cleveland.


Jose Ramirez back up with Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Jose Ramirez is not the prime shortstop prospect for the Indians - that distinction belongs to Francisco Lindor. But Ramirez has already received a chance to display his wares at the big league level and has now gotten another with a promotion to Cleveland.

Ramirez could serve as the starter with Asdrubal Cabrera dealing with a back problem. He has been torrid with Triple-A Columbus, racking up seven hits in his last four games, including three doubles and a triple, to sweeten his stat line to .302/.360/.441.


Indians send down three players


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(5/20/2014) The Indians sent down first baseman Jesus Aguilar, pitcher T.J. House and infielder Jose Ramirez to Triple-A Columbus, reports MLB.com. 

Jose Ramirez up with Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2014) The Indians have promoted middle infielder Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus after placing second baseman Jason Kipnis on the disabled list.

Ramirez impressed during a short stint with Cleveland in 2013. It remains to be seen how much playing time he receives with veterans Mike Aviles and Ryan Raburn also on the roster.


Jose Ramirez tweaks ankle on treadmill


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Indians infielder Jose Ramirez tweaked his ankle while running on a treadmill, according to the Plain Dealer.

Ramirez will play in a B Game Tuesday. He's also attempting to come back from offseason thumb surgery. Ramirez received 12 at-bats in the majors last year.


Two injured Cleveland players taking it easy at outset of camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) The Indians updated the statuses of two injured players Monday. They said first baseman/outfielder Bryan LaHair (wrist) is only hitting off a tee, and infielder Jose Ramirez (thumb) is out 7-10 days.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Indians infielder Jose Ramirez, who injured his left thumb playing in the Dominican Winter League, said he is about a week away from starting to swing a bat, according to The Plain Dealer.

Jose Ramirez could have thumb surgery


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/9/2013) MLB.com reports that Indians infielder Jose Ramirez injured his left thumb while playing in the Dominican Winter League, and he will probably need to have surgery. Ramirez is expected to be ready for the beginning of Cactus League play in late February.

Though he spent most of the 2013 season with Double-A Akron, Ramirez appeared in 15 games with the Indians, and he went 4 for 12 (.333) at the plate.


Indians add five players to roster


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The Indians made five promotions to the roster as part of September callups Sunday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Added to the roster for the stretch run were right-handed pitchers Preston Guilmet and Blake Wood and lefty Nick Hagadone. The Tribe also purchased the contracts of catcher Kelly Shoppach and infielder Jose Ramirez from Columbus and Double-A Akron, respectively.

The 20-year-old Ramirez hit .272 over 113 games for Akron this season with 38 stolen bases. All of the relievers spent some time up in the majors this season, except for Wood, who last pitched in the big leagues in 2011 with the Royals.
