How Hanley Ramirez Has Finally Rediscovered His Superstar Talent

How Hanley Ramirez Has Finally Rediscovered His Superstar Talent

Posted by Aimee Flores Jiminian on September 25, 2013

Watch out, National League pitchers. Hanley Ramirez is back.

The .313/.385/.521 hitting machine from 2006-2010 has regained his form, helping to transform the Dodgers lineup alongside Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig.
During the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Ramirez became a shell of his All-Star self, falling to career lows in on-base percentage, batting average, extra-base hits and OPS. When the Miami Marlins moved on from their former franchise player last summer, it looked the Dodgers were buying low on a player past his physical prime. 


Now, Ramirez is healthy and having his best season. Since returning from the disabled list in June, the 29-year-old infielder has posted a 1.012 OPS, good for a full 82 percent better than the league average. His 182 wRC+ (weight runs created plus) would be good for third in all of Major League Baseball if Ramirez had enough at-bats to qualify. The only hitters providing more offense this season: Miguel Cabrera and Chris Davis.
