RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
