Guardians 3B Jose Ramirez joins HR Derby field

Jose Ramirez

Cleveland Guardians third baseman Jose Ramirez will participate the Home Run Derby, the slugger announced on social media on Tuesday.

Ramirez, 31, is already heading to Arlington, Texas, for the All-Star Game on July 16. It’ll be his fourth straight All-Star appearance and sixth overall.

Ramirez competed in the 2022 derby, but he was dealing with a thumb injury and was eliminated by Juan Soto in the first round. This year’s derby will be held on July 15.

A four-time Silver Slugger winner, Ramirez entered Tuesday with 23 homers and 76 RBIs along with a .269 batting average in 86 games this season.

In 1,379 games over 12 seasons with the Guardians, Ramirez has a .278 batting average, 239 home runs and 822 RBIs.

Other confirmed entries in the slugging exhibition are the Philadelphia Phillies’ Alec Bohm, the Baltimore Orioles’ Gunnar Henderson, the Kansas City Royals’ Bobby Witt Jr., the Atlanta Braves’ Marcell Ozuna and two-time winner Pete Alonso of the New York Mets.
