Big things were expected of Ramirez after his strong rookie season in 2014, but shoulder and abdominal injuries limited him to just 19 appearances last year. He was a bit lucky in 2014, so we expected...

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Hands up for all of you who thought Ramirez would be the best pitcher in the Cubs' bullpen last year. The 1.44 ERA and 53 strikeouts in 43.2 innings were nice, but they come with some warning signs, namely the 17 walks, .278 BABIP, and 89 percent strand rate. This is a player who has posted some gaudy strikeout numbers but who has otherwise struggled in the minors. If you're counting on a repeat season from Ramirez in 2015, don't say we didn't warn you. The correction is coming.

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.
