Biggest surprise of the first half: The clutch hitting of Jose Ramirez

Jose Ramirez has had quite a ride with the Indians. He had his ups and downs in his first two full years with the Indians, as he had his ups and downs, but his tenure with the Indians hit a low point after 2015, as he finished the season with a batting average of a measly .219, and was viewed by many as an organizational afterthought, but Ramirez converted into an outfielder this past offseason, and has now embraced the super utility role for the Indians.

Ramirez has a OPS of .769 with four home runs and 38 runs batted in. But what’s been even more impressive is his clutch hitting. Ramirez is currently batting .377 with runners in scoring position, which is good for fifth in the American League. 2016 is looking like the year that Rameriz is finally putting it all together.

Honorable mentions: Carlos Santana‘s 20 Home Runs, The emergence of Tyler Naquin, Jason Kipnis’s 14 Home Runs
