There is something so very likeable and infectious about Harold Ramirez. You cannot help but root for the guy. Although his overall numbers are nothing to get overly excited for, he came up to the big league club at a time when the offense was at its nadir. The team was near the bottom in most offensive categories and they were particularly putrid in the clutch.
But since being called up in May, the “other Ramirez” has hit a slick .324 with RISP and .308 with a man in scoring position and two outs. Since the beginning of June he has kicked his overall hitting up a notch, batting .324 through 11 games, so far, this month. Harold was claimed off waivers in February after spending all but two games in 2020 on the IL, which makes his success all the more compelling.
When Harold steps on a baseball field he comes with goal of leaving blood and sweat on the field, and that is an attitude and effort that will endear you to any Clevelander’s heart. He is becoming a firm fan favorite and has made his presence felt in the lineup with many clutch moments. The hope is that it continues long into the season.
