Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez impressed the coaching staff by reporting to camp lighter after gaining some weight over the winter. Manager Terry Francona's message "about taking charge" seems to have resonated with the youngster.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez, just 22 years old, is slated to open the year as the team's starting shortstop. He's an impressive youngster who hit .262 with two home runs in 68 games last year, and he added 10 stolen bases. He's more of a candidate for AL-only leagues, but he could find his way to being useful in deep mixed leagues throughout the season.
