2. Hanley Ramirez (26.9)
Hanley Ramirez is a 6-foot-2, 235 lb. shortstop from Samana, DR. Born on December 23rd, 1983, he made his major league debut with the Boston Red Sox near the end of the 2005 season, going 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts. After that first look, the Sox traded him with Jesus Delgado, Harvey Garcia, and Anibal Sanchez to the Marlins for Josh Beckett, Mike Lowell, and Guillermo Mota.
Ramirez was Florida’s starting shortstop from the jump, winning the 2006 National League Rookie of the Year Award. In 158 games for the 78-84 ballclub, he hit .292/.353/.480 with 17 home runs and 59 RBI, stealing an NL-third 51 bases. He also ranked amongst the league leaders with an NL-fifth 119 runs scored, 185 hits (10th), 46 doubles (seventh), and 11 triples (sixth).
In 2007, Ramirez hit .332/.386/.562 with 29 homers and 81 RBI, stealing another 51 bases while getting caught only 14 times over 154 games. He led the Marlins with 212 hits, 125 runs, and his average, ranking second with 48 doubles and third with 29 home runs and 81 RBI.
Ramirez graduated to the all star team for the first time in 2008, leading the NL with 125 runs scored. He won his first Silver Slugger and again earned a spot at the All Star game. He hit a career high 33 home runs with 67 RBI, and slashed .301/.400/.540 in 153 games for the Marlins.
2009 would see Ramirez make his second all-star team and win his second Silver Slugger. He also finished second in the NL MVP vote, leading the league with a .342 average. He hit .342/.410/.543 in 151 games, with 24 homers and 106 RBI, along with 42 doubles.
In 2010, Ramirez again made the all-star team, hitting .300/.378./.475 with 21 homers, 76 RBI, and 32 stolen bases. The team finished 80-82.
2011 would be Ramirez’ last full season with the Marlins. Limited by injury to only 92 contests, Ramirez’ stats suffered across the board. He slashed just .243/.333/.379 with 10 home runs and 45 RBI, with 20 steals in 30 attempts.
2012 would see Ramirez start the season along the same lines as his prior campaign. Just before the trade deadline, the Marlins traded him with Randy Choate to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Nathan Eovaldi and Scott McGough.
Since leaving, Ramirez spent two and a half years with the Dodgers, returning to the Red Sox for four seasons beginning in 2015. Last season, he reemerged with the Cleveland Indians, but hit only .184 over 16 games.
