Aramis Ramirez (3B)

Pittsburgh Pirates - 34% owned

(?)
Bats: R, Throws: R

Ramirez went hitless in five at-bats on Tuesday night and is now 0-12 since being traded to the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: It has been a tough start for Ramirez and his playing time could be in jeopardy when Josh Harrison makes his return to the Pirates lineup.

 

Ramirez failed to record a hit after returning to his first major league team. He hit into a double play in the sixth inning to effectively kill a Pirates rally. However, he also had two deep flyouts that narrowly missed being home runs.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez was batting cleanup for the Pirates which is obviously good for his value. Don't get too excited over Ramirez for fantasy purposes however, as he is not the player he once was and this trade will not change that.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't good news for Ramirez owners as this will hurt his power numbers. He'll be going from the hitter friendly confines of Miller Park to the pitcher friendly PNC Park.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez plans to hang it up after the 2015 season at the age of 37. The Brewers want to get as much production as they can from Ramirez in his final season, and regular rest will be necessary to keep him fresh. Aramis owners in daily leagues should be aware of when he sits out to rest and will need to plan for regular absences once or twice a week.

 

Ramirez went 2-4 driving in a run against Oakland Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: With Ramirez, you know what you're going to get this season. He will hit around .275 with 15 home runs and 70 RBI's. The reliable veteran is in his final season and being drafted late in most fantasy leagues.

I'm not playing anymore." Ramirez is a career .285 hitter with 369 home runs in 19 seasons in the majors. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Third base is a thin position this season, Ramirez has always been a good fantasy producer for owners and could be a late round bargain as his age may drive off suitors.
