BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Ramirez lost 2011 to a shoulder injury after being taken in the Rule 5 Draft by Washington, and he suddenly finds himself 25 and needing to show something to make a case for his career. Not many pitchers post a Triple-A walk rate like Ramirez did and get called up anyway, and those that do tend to fare exactly as Ramirez did in 2012: poorly. The BABIP looks ugly, but when you're dealing with a pitcher who obviously has no idea where the baseball is going, that's just as likely to be caused by accidentally grooved fastballs as by the poor fortune of dinks and bloops.
2011 Elvin Ramirez is a tall righty who has no idea where the ball is going when it leaves his hand. Sometimes it crosses the plate for a strike, other times it strikes the hitter, and on less frequent occasions it bypasses the catcher's vicinity altogether and doesn't stop until it hits the 7 train. Ramirez is not a ground-ball pitcher, but rarely allows homers; if he could find the strike zone more often—like he did in the Dominican Winter League—he would become an intriguing relief option for Washington, which snagged him in the Rule 5 draft.
