• Praise For Yankee Farmhand Jose Ramirez

    Posted by on April 30th, 2010 · Comments (9)

    In this week’s edition of the “Prospect Hot Sheet“, Baseball America places Charleston (low-A) RHP Jose Ramirez on “helium watch” as a player that can expect to receive more attention in the coming weeks.

    For those of you that might be unfamilar with Ramirez, Baseball America’s write-up says:

    Ramirez has a 1.93 ERA in 23 1/3 innings and a 29-6 K-BB mark for low Class A Charleston. Ramirez, 20, does it with a plus fastball that can reach the mid-90s, a plus changeup and the ability to pound the strike zone. That should be enough for Ramirez to cruise through the low minors, though he will still need to bring his breaking ball up to par as he moves up the ladder.

    I love it when the Yanks find talent via international free agency!  Props to Cashman and his team of international scouts.

      Then again, Tony Armas looked great in Low-A when he was 19 too back in the day…

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      I don’t think anyone’s saying this kid is can’t miss. He’s in low-A, after all. It’s just nice to see that they’re getting the same thing from Ramirez that they were getting from Vizcaino last year.

      Sooooo much can happen between Low-A and the levels above it. Hard to get excited over what a kid does at that level and below.

      Of course a lot can happen between now and the next levels (if there are even next levels for this kid). No one’s saying anything differently.

      …and Tony Armas was eventually part of a trade for Pedro Martinez.

      But not to the Yankees.

      I thought some guy named Pavano was the key to that deal?
