Harold Ramirez, OF – TB
Boy oh boy, those Rays are fun to watch! Heading into this week, Tampa Bay is first in the league in many offensive categories as part of their 19-3 start. Ramirez has been consistently hitting in the middle of the lineup and is one home run away from tying his total for all of last year when he hit six in 435 PA. The 28 year old has bounced around between a few organizations, and has had some success at every stop but was never given an everyday role. In Tampa, he’s in the lineup everyday. Ramirez is slashing .373/.422/.712 with five homers, 10 RBI and 11 runs. While that slash will take a dip at some point, I see him as an extremely useful outfield piece that you should hop on now if he’s available. Even if he slows a bit, we’ve seen over the course of his career Ramirez doesn’t take a ton of walks (4.3% BB%) but he also doesn’t strike out a ton (17.5% K%) for his career. As long as this offense is firing on all cylinders Ramirez deserves a look to be in your lineup. He’s currently available in 35% of all Fantrax leagues, so get him while you can.
Logan Webb, SP – SFG
Webb’s full body of work up to this point hasn’t been what you’d hoped for. His K/BB is an impressive 36/4, which doesn’t match his ERA (4.40) through his first five starts. There are plenty of other factors that have led to his slow start. Webb is only stranding 65% of baserunners which is a 6% dip from 2022. He’s also allowing a few too many long balls with 1.76 HR/9, and has allowed at least one in 4 of 5 starts. In what could be the upward trend we have been waiting for, Webb went seven innings against a potent Mets offense and allowed just two earned runs and struck out eight. I was able to deal for Webb this past week in my 15 team dynasty, and I’m glad I was able to get in on the buy low window. After his most recent start, that window may be slamming shut.
Thairo Estrada, 2B/SS – SFG
Another key piece for the Giants continues to be Estrada, and is it just me or does he not get enough love? The infielder has picked up where he left off hitting .329/.384/.532 with four homers, five steals, 18 runs and 7 RBI. His success thus far has been linked to his .373 BABIP and which speaks to his ability to put the ball into play, but will regress at some point closer to his .301 career mark. Estrada is looking like a middle infield steal, that has a shot at being a 20/20 guy with 90 runs and 80 RBI as long as he stays healthy. He gave owners 140 games last season, so here’s hoping for health! 2022 is likely the last time Estrada is this affordable in drafts.
