2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

The Cubs got Ramirez as part of the Matt Garza deal, and while his ERA has never been great, his strikeout rate is outstanding. In 107.2 Double-A innings last year, Ramirez struck out 132. While he can stand to get his walks down a bit, and the home run rate can use some improvement as well, Ramirez is still just 24 and could find himself in Chicago this summer.

2012

Ramirez basically skipped High-A and Double-A altogether, pitching just 23.2 innings at those levels before progressing all the way to Triple-A Round Rock, originally as a temporary rotation replacement due to injuries. He amassed 74.1 innings at Round Rock, allowing just 63 hits and carrying an 86:35 K:BB. The control issues have plagued him in the past, though he curtailed those issues in 2010 with just 37 walks in 140.1 innings at Low-A Hickory. There are some troubling signs, particularly as it relates to GB/FB ratios, which could limit his ceiling to a back-of-the-rotation type.
