Cleveland Indians DFS Spin
Harold Ramirez blasted a solo homer on Sunday to help the Indians top the Pirates. Ramirez homer gave Cleveland a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning. It's the sixth on the year for the former Pittsburgh prospect, and the third in his last six appearances. Ramirez has shown flashes of brilliance in his short MLB career. It's just hard to predict any sustainability as it hasn't happened as of yet.
