Jose Ramirez is the best third baseman in baseball.
Since 2016 only Mookie Betts and Mike Trout have been able to produce a higher fWAR. His strikeout rate has averaged only 14.7% in his career while his walk percentage has been at 12.0%. In that same span JRam (great nickname) has put up a 135 wRC+ with his fantastic defence at third. He’s not a free agent until after the 2023 season and he’s on an incredibly cheap deal (12 million dollars in 2022 and 14 million dollars in 2023).
By now you should know just how great of a player Jose Ramirez is. And how much better he will make the Blue Jays. Here we go.
The Blue Jays front office is extremely good at evaluating players within their organization. So when trying to figure out who we should give up and who we should hold onto, remember that the situation is in safe hands. Ross Atkins and Co. will not do anything they are not comfortable with. And when the front office is comfortable, you should be comfortable as well.
Let’s look at the major league talent that the Blue Jays have to offer…
