Aramis Ramirez’s trade value is skyrocketing.
Mr. Clutch has made a dramatic comeback from his disappearing act through the first two months of the season.
His game-tying home run Thursday off Giants’ closer Brian Wilson, who had not allowed a HR in his last 44 outings, comes on the heels of his game-winning walk-off hit Wednesday night!
That gives Aramis 8 HR and 19 RBI in his last 23 games. A June turn-a-round which also includes a .296 average this month. And history warns us the third baseman is just warming up.
Ramirez has 66 career home runs during the month of July, his best mark of any month, ranking ninth-most among active players.
If that streak continues, Aramis should bring a very solid return in a trade later this month.
Although Ramirez has long been my favorite Cub, his recent hot-streak couldn’t come at a better time. Baring injury, trading Aramis seems inevitable…and the right move for the Cubs organization.
