Ryan came on strong in the last month of the season en route to be named player of the week once. He finished with a .350 batting clip, .409 OBP and .400 SLG. He was also a stabilizing force behind home plate defensively.
Ramirez logged the most innings at 42. He finished 3-2 with a 3.43 ERA and 32 strikeouts.
