BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Generously listed at 5-foot-10, Ramos toed a big-league rubber for the first time last summer and promptly struck out the side on 13 pitches. The Texas Tech product features a plus slider that flashes plus-plus break at times, and he pairs that sweeping offering with a fastball that ticked up to 94 last season after looking fringy in the past. With Mujica now in St. Louis, there is an opening for a middle-relief righty in Miamiís bullpen, and Ramos will head to spring training with a chance to seize it. If he maintains the newfound fastball velocity and sharpens his command, Ramos could find setup work down the line.
2011 Short righty Alejandro Ramos mowed down Sally Leaguers with low-90s heat, but as a former Texas Tech pitcher, he was a bit old and advanced for the circuit.
