Aramis Ramirez (3B)

Pittsburgh Pirates - 30% owned

(?)
Bats: R, Throws: R

Ramirez had a huge game as he drove in four runs on the night, three of which came from a home run in the fourth inning.

Fantasy Impact: When in the lineup Ramirez continues to deliver. He now has three home runs in his past four games and 10 RBI in his past 10 games. Although he will not play every day, his production is difficult to ignore right now and is worth an add to your roster.

 

Ramirez hit his 14th home run of the season on Tuesday night. It was his only hit of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has been productive since joining the Pirates, the problem of late has been his inconsistent playing time. Since the return of Jordy Mercer, Jung-Ho Kang has seen more time at third base, which has in turn pushed Ramirez out of the lineuup. In leagues with daily lineup changes Ramirez still carries value however, and is a nice bench piece to have during your playoff push.

 

Ramirez hit his 13th home run of the season in the first inning on Saturday. It was his only hit of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has performed well since becoming a Pirate but has limited value in weekly lineup leagues due to his inconsistent playing time.

 

The Pittsburgh Pirates were able to beat the Miami Marlins handily on Monday evening, but Tuesday was a different story. Pittsburgh took a 1-0 lead, but Miami scored 5 unanswered runs off of Charlie Morton. Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Aramis Ramirez is going to be assigned a smaller role on the left side of the infield the final 40 days of the season. Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer have returned, so he will get limited fantasy action. He is a good start on the nights he plays, so if you're willing to hold a roster spot for him, he can be valuable.

Ramirez did not start on Saturday as Josh Harrison got the start at third base. With Harrison's return, Ramirez is seemingly out of an everyday role.

Fantasy Impact: The Pirates infield situation will be clouded further with the return of Jordy Mercer. Ramirez will have little role in the Pirates offense and will have little fantasy value moving forward barring further injury.

 

Ramirez recorded only one hit on the game Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has been productive of late mostly due to his spot in the lineup. The problem for Ramirez is that the return of Josh Harrison, who was starting at third base prior to his injury, puts Ramirez's consistent place in the lineup in jeopardy. It is worth monitoring if he continues to get consistent at bats over the weekend before determining his fantasy value moving forward.

 

Ramirez recorded an RBI double in the first inning. It was his only hit of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has been an elite RBI producer of late and would be a nice depth player on your team to provide insurance against injuries or poor production.

 

Ramirez recorded a hit, a walk, and a run driven on in the night.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez continues to rake as the cleanup hitter in the Pirates offense. He has had opportunities to produce with men on base and has taken advantage of them. He is sparsely owned in standard leagues, so if you are looking for help at the hot corner he is worth an add at this point.

 

Ramirez managed only one hit on the day, his 23rd double of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez now has a hit in 10 of his last 11 games, which includes four multi-hit games. Ramirez has recorded RBIs in eight of those games as well. If you are looking for a hot bat at the hot corner, Ramirez could be your guy.

 

Ramirez recorded four hits on the day, including one double. With those four hits, Ramirez produced three RBI and one run scored.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has now recorded at least one RBI in the past four games, including two multi-RBI games in a row. He certainly has made up for a slow start with the Pirates of late, and has now raised his average to .249 on the season. He is worth a look if you need help at third base, though the return of Josh Harrison must be monitored.

 

Ramirez went hitless but drove in the Pirates third run with a sacrifice fly.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has slowly started to get on track for the Pirates. He will be fighting for playing time soon however with the return of Josh Harrison.

 

Ramirez did not start in the Pirates win on Thursday but still managed to drive in one run.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez has started to have a real impact in the Pirates lineup of late. He is expected to start taking reps at first base as the return of Josh Harrison will likely push him out of starting role at third base. However, with the play of Pedro Alvarez also picking up of late, there is a chance that Ramirez will not start regularly at first base either and his role will be consistently as a pinch-hitter.

 

Ramirez's lone hit on the night was a single.

Fantasy Impact: After a slow start in his return to the Pirates, Ramirez has started to turn it around. He now owns a six game hit streak, three of which have been multiple hit games. His counting stats have also picked up in that time, as he now has four RBI in that span.

 

Ramirez had only one hit on the night, though it was good enough to drive in a run.

Fantasy Impact: The RBI was Ramirez's fourth of the month. He has yet to truly hit his stride since his return to the Pirates and should not be counted on in many formats.

 

The Pittsburgh Pirates came back to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-6, after trailing 5-1. The Pirates were able to record their league-best 34th comeback win. Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Ramirez got his RBI in the ridiculous nine run seventh inning on a single to center field.

Fantasy Impact: Aramis Ramirez is not the player he once was, but he has been just the player the Pirates needed to fill in while Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer are on the disabled list. Ramirez isn't going to have much fantasy value once Harrison returns because Harrison will play third while Kang remains at shortstop.

The Pittsburgh Pirates were able to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in extra innings off of the bat of Pedro Alvarez. Gerrit Cole also pitched a solid six innings to keep the Pirates in the game. Ramirez was able to give the Pirates the 4-3 lead in the fifth inning

Fantasy Impact: Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a RBI in the Pirates win on Friday night. The Pirates currently have Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer on the DL, who play the left side of the infield. The Pirates traded for Ramirez to be a bench guy when those guys come back, so he is a great fantasy third baseman for now. But once Harrison returns, Ramirez will move to the bench.

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.

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.

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.
