Wilson Ramos is overrated for fantasy, but not to MLB teams

 

As far as I can see he's never hit that great in the minors.  In 189 ab at AAA this year he's hitting .217 with 4 hrs and 18 rbis with a 35/7 K/BB ratio.  The most hrs he's ever hit in the minors is 13 two years ago in 452 ab.  Frankly, I'm baffled at the interest in him from a fantasy stand point.  I understand why MLB teams love him, because he's a good defender that should hit for a decent average.  That's something not to be taken lightly from a MLB point of view.  I guess he does have some pop potential and he did look good in 27 at bats when Mauer went on the DL earlier this year, but that doesn't justify the hype when you consider his entire body of work.  If the Twins are smart they will offer him up to get Cliff Lee.  Ramos has no position on the Twins.  He doesn't hit well enough to DH and he's not mobile enough to play third or first.  I guess Mauer could go to third.  That would be the only scenario that makes sense to me.  It makes the most sense to trade him for what will no doubt be good value.
