Indians’ Jose Ramirez Diagnosed With Left Knee Contusion, Opening Day in Question

Two days after the Indians announced that shortstop Francisco Lindor and second baseman Jason Kipnis will begin the season on the injured list, Jose Ramirez fouled a pitch off the inside of his left knee and was carted off the field in the third inning of Sunday’s game vs. the White Sox.

X-rays for Ramirez revealed no broken bone, but he was diagnosed with a left knee contusion, according to MLB.com. The Indians gave no immediate timetable for his return, which puts his status for Opening Day is in question. Ramirez finished third in the American League MVP voting in both 2017 and 2018, and his 136 OPS+ ranks 11th among all players since 2016, the year he became an everyday player.

At the rate things are going, the odds are getting increasingly high that someone could win the AL Central with a sub-.500 record….

Looks like entering the season without an OF wasn't such a great idea.

I eagerly await an Opening Day lineup that includes Eric Stamets, Max Moroff, Jake Bauers, Roberto Perez, Leonys Martin, Brad Miller, old and broken down Hanley Ramirez, and Tyler Naquin.

This is fine.

That's no joke. I don't see how 7 or 8 of those guys, or some equally crappy ones (e.g. Plawecki, Luplow, Carlos Gonzalez), aren't in the opening day lineup.

The only legit player they have standing is Santana, and he's just average.

old and broken down Hanley Ramirez

I'd describe him as "surprisingly employed," although I suppose he might be better than Eric Stamets and Max Moroff?

Cleveland losing because they refused to try to reinforce things would be great.

Kind of torn about Ramirez because the one guy in my fantasy who is a complete ####### spent a shitton of money on Ramirez but obviously I want players to stay healthy. I guess I will settle on that the rest of the league owners were all able to enjoy his momentary misery via Twitter until the latest news came out. To address the obvious follow up I am only a partial #######. Still in development so not complete

And thus begins the legendary 2019 Detroit Tigers run to the World Series title.

I'd bet on the Twins. Echoes of 1987.

Nah, that's totally plausible, no humor value whatsoever.

Willians Astudillo, World Series MVP, might disagree.

You meant AL MVP, right?

So is this the definitive case study on the value of starting pitching in todays game?
