Cleveland Indians' Jose Ramirez returns early from hand surgery, hits two homers

USA Today Sports 1 month ago

After undergoing hand surgery on August 26, Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez was supposed to miss the rest of the regular season. 

Apparently, someone forgot to tell him. 

A little more than four weeks after fracturing the hamate bone in his right hand, Ramirez returned to the lineup on Tuesday night with a bang. In his first at-bat off the injured list, the switch-hitter blasted a grand slam off Chicago White Sox right-hander Carson Fulmer.

The story got even better when he came up in the third inning against lefty Hector Santiago and launched another homer, this one a three-run shot.

Two at-bats, two home runs and a career-high seven RBI. 

Ramirez's return to the lineup is also quite timely for the Indians, who are locked in a three-way battle for one of the two American League wild-card playoff berths.

The Indians began the day a half-game behind the Tampa Bay Rays for the second spot and two games behind the wild-card leading Oakland A's.
