2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Ramirez signed with the Twins as a 20-year-old from the Dominican. He had been an infielder much of his life, but the Twins had him move to the mound. He spent 2013 in the Dominican pitching out of the bullpen. He posted a 2.45 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. In 33 innings, he gave up just 13 hits but walked 25 and struck out 35. He remained in the DSL in 2014 but started. In 74.2 innings, he posted a 1.18 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. He walked 33 and struck out 81. Ramirez has a good, moving fastball that sits 91-94 and touches 95 and 96. He’s also got an improving changeup from 84-86 mph. He’s also working on a slow curveball that is currently in the low-70s.
