RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Ramos bounced between Triple-A Durham and the majors in 2012, finding success at both levels. The lefty is able to work long middle relief and work as an occasional spot starter when needed. He improved his K/BB rate to 2.90 from 1.24 in 2011 and posted a solid 2.10 ERA in 17 appearances with the Rays in 2012. He has limited fantasy value in his current role, but he should continue in middle relief for the Rays in 2013.

2012

A piece from San Diego in the Jason Bartlett deal, Ramos filled in adequately in a middle relief role for the Rays. He throws a low-90s fastball as well as a change-up, curve and slider. His 31:25 K:BB ratio and 1.397 WHIP show he doesn't have a lot of upside, but he did have a decent 49 percent groundball rate. He'll likely reprise his role as a middle reliever for the team.

2011

Ramos spent the majority of 2010 at Triple-A Portland, where he posted a 3.28 ERA, 1.385 WHIP and 1.47 K/BB ratio as a starter and reliever. He spent parts of April and May, along with all of September, with the big club and produced underwhelming results. Working on his command, which continues to slide, would do him a world of good as he doesn't have the kind of stuff to make many hitters miss. In the offseason he was traded to Tampa Bay. He'll serve as a swing man and is likely to have little fantasy value in that role.

2010

A shoulder problem derailed him after a fast start, and he pitched poorly at both Triple-A and in the majors upon his return. Another of the Padres' endless collection of command prospects, Ramos is a bit less attractive than Wade LeBlanc and Clayton Richard but a few steps ahead of Josh Geer. You don't really want any of them.

2009

Ramos struggled a bit last season at Triple-A Portland, but he showed enough promise to be added to the Padres' 40-man roster in November. He is a pitch-to-contact guy that had a rough year in terms of hits on balls in play, allowing 183 in only 149.2 innings. He also walked more hitters than he did in the lower minors, so he is likely to be asked to begin the year back at Triple-A to hone his control as he will never be confused for a strikeout pitcher. If successful, he could see the big leagues as early as 2009.

2008

Ramos is a decent prospect in a San Diego minor league system largely devoid of talented starting pitchers. He went 13-9 with a 3.41 ERA and 1.20 WHIP at Double-A San Antonio in 2007. Ramos' 90:43 K:BB ratio could be a lot better. He will probably spend 2008 in Triple-A and could contend for a back-end rotation spot in 2009.

2007

Ramos' best pitch is his changeup, but hes not much of a strikeout pitcher and his K:BB (1.59) is below average. Hell probably begin 2007 in Double-A, but is a long way from the majors.
