Indians 3B Jose Ramirez’s 17th HR by the End of May Puts Him in Elite Company

CLEVELAND – Indians third basemen Jose Ramirez is having a huge season at the plate, and Wednesday in the series finale against the White Sox he pounded his 17th homer of the season in the 4th inning.

The homer puts him in some elite company already this early in the 2018 season, as Ramirez is just the second Indians player to reach that mark by the end of May in the history of the franchise.

As tweeted by Indians Communications Info Guru Ryan Milowicki, Ramirez joins slugger Albert Belle as just the second player to reach the mark just two months into the season.

I think Indians fans would be more than happy to see JRam put up the kind of numbers Belle had in 1996 when (as stated in the tweet) Belle clubbed 48 homers and drove in 148 runs.
