RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ramirez had some success at Low-A Greenville in 2012 mostly due to his changeup, which he's seamlessly able to match to the delivery of his fastball. It has good drop/movement and is the reason he struck out nearly a batter per inning. His fastball is a very hittable 89-91 mph offering that he needs to keep down in the zone. Ramirez displayed good command and control of his pitches in 2012. He can probably survive in the lower levels with his present stuff, but to advance as a starter in the upper minors, Ramirez will need to develop his slider and continue to command his arsenal. Ramirez is expected to open the 2013 season at High-A Salem in the Carolina League.
Ramirez is a 2011 fourth-round draft pick out of Cal State Fullerton, where he was the Titans' staff ace, going 8-4 with a 1.69 ERA and 103 strikeouts to 20 walks in 90 2/3 innings. His out pitch is the changeup, which he can use at any point and makes his fastball (89-92 mph) better. Ramirez should stay behind in Florida when training camp breaks and will likely see a placement at Short-Season Lowell in June.
