Alexei Ramirez finally had another good season at shortstop. However, his numbers are skewed by a hot start. In the first two months of last season, Ramirez hit .329 with seven of his 15 home runs and 11 of his 21 steals. After that his numbers came back down to reality. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Alexei Ramirez was a top five shortstop in points last season. However, he did not help owners as much after his hot start. The likely hood of Ramirez repeating his fantasy performance from last season is slim. If you can get him later in the draft he is worth it, but if you have to use a first-half draft pick for him, do not. Other serviceable shortstops will be available later.
