It is easy to argue that his Indians run is undervalued, and it shouldn’t be. Ramirez was the runner-up for the American League Rookie of the Year Award in 1994, but he truly broke out in 1995, where he had 31 Home Runs, 107 RBI, and batted .308. He was an All-Star and Silver Slugger this year, and while he did not win those honors in 1996 and 1997, his offensive numbers were comparable to 1995.
As good as he was from 1995 to 1997, Ramirez took his offense to another level in 1998. From that season to 2000, he was a perennial All-Star with his power numbers increasing with 117 Home Runs and 422 RBIs. He won the Slugging and OPS Title in both 1999 and 2000, and from 1998 to 2000, he won the Silver Slugger and was a top-ten finisher for the MVP.
Ramirez was good, but the Indians were not a serious contender for the World Series, and the Dominican took his skill to the Boston Red Sox as a Free Agent, where he won two World Series rings. With Cleveland, he had 236 Home Runs with a Slash Line of .313/.407/.592.
