Around the Farm: April 21, 2014

Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game. Jose Ramirez (2B, Columbus): 4-for-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, SB. Ramirez is on fire right now as he is hitting .400 over his last 10 games, and more surprising, he has three home runs...

Five Indians prospects primed for a breakout season

Last week, I took a look at the pitching prospects and position player prospects who could impact the Indians roster this season. This time around, we take a look at some prospects that are not necessarily close to playing in Cleveland or even a high-level prospect, but who have the upside and potential to really take a large step forward this season and establish themselves as some...

2014 IBI Top 50 Prospects: #6 INF Jose Ramirez

The IBI's 2014 Indians Top 50 Prospect countdown continues with infielder Jose Ramirez.

In this detailed scouting report, the IBI's Tony Lastoria goes into great detail...

Ramirez Needs to Prove Skipping Columbus was No Mistake

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

What the Jose Ramirez promotion means for Tribe’s future

Typically, September promotions in baseball don’t warrant a significant amount of attention. For most teams, it’s a matter of adding along the miscellaneous 40-man players that they’ve had ready to go all season. For the few remaining contending squads, the focus is on players who can impact games in any small way. What this means is, typically, 20-year-old 5-foot-9 second...

Orbiting Cleveland: Gauging Jose Ramirez's value

As the end of the month approaches, the attention of almost every Cleveland Indians fan is centered right on the playoff race. That's for good reason, too. Who would have thought that just one year removed from a 68-94 season, the Indians would find themselves with a 71-62 record and in the thick of the American League Wild Card race. It's quite remarkable and just goes to...

Is Jose Ramirez a Starter or Reliever?

Jose Ramirez‘s live arm was on display against Kevin Gausman this past Friday. The New York Yankees’ minor-leaguer consistently unleashed 94 mph to 95 mph four-seam fastballs against the Bowie Baysox from his low three-quarter arm slot. The pitch touched 97 mph, but Ramirez’s low release point kept it on the same plane on which it was released. It did, however, feature arm...

Jose Ramirez keeps hitting as he moves up the ladder

When you think of the prototypical baseball player, a few images probably come to mind: tall, muscular, fast, top physical condition, etc. In other words, baseball players are not supposed to look like you, me, and Jose Ramirez. Ramirez is roughly my size at 5’9”, 165 pounds and generally does not fit the stereotype of a baseball player. Going into the 2012 season, he was unknown...
