WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

The Pirates signed Ramos at age 18 out of the Dominican.

2013
DSL:  3-1-2, 2.30 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 43.0 IP, 3.1 BB/9, 6.9 K/9

Ramos pitched well in relief, with solid numbers across the board.

2014
R:  1-0-3, 0.40 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, 22.1 IP, 3.6 BB/9, 4.8 K/9

Still pitching in relief, Ramos held opponents to a .135 batting average and a .418 OPS despite missing very few bats.  Left-handed hitters were 0-9 against him.  Given the small sample size, it’s hard to draw any conclusions from these numbers.

Ramos will open the 2015 season at age 21.  If the Pirates think he’s really a prospect, they’ll move him to Morgantown or maybe even West Virginia.
