YearComment
2009 Elizardo Ramirez has plus-plus control of minus-minus stuff, and no, that does not make him average.
2008 One could say Elizardo Ramirez was rushed to the majors, but, on the other hand, what was his ceiling? Sometimes described as a control specialist, Ramirez has neither outstanding peripherals nor a consistent out pitch. To add to his troubles, he lost time in 2007 to a recurrence of shoulder tendonitis.
2007 Although not gifted with any particularly strong pitch, `Easy E` is relatively young and throws strikes with his fastball, curve, and change. Called up to fill the rotation slot David Williams couldn`t hold onto, he gave the Reds ten quality starts in his first sixteen, only to go to pieces in August. Scouts might sniff that that was the league catching up to him, but in getting rocked by two playoff teams, then having to start the day after having to come into an extra-inning loss in relief, then hitting the DL with a sore shoulder, Ramirez was contending with more than familiarity breeding contempt. He`ll be in the running for the fifth slot in the rotation in the spring. If he can continue to improve his strikeout rate, he`ll continue to be more successful than expected.
2006 The thin righty made four emergency starts for the Reds in 2005, but he`s not as close as that might seem to being ready for primetime. He lacks a plus pitch and, while he posted a good ERA in Louisville, his peripheral numbers were headed in the wrong direction.
