Ramirez Gets First Grapefruit League Action
Wednesday will mark the Rays spring debut of outfielder Harold Ramirez, who was acquired from the Chicago Cubs Saturday.
The 27-year-old told St. Pete Nine that despite only less than two weeks before the start of the regular season, he feels he can still be ready for April 8 because he played winter ball and particiapted in the Carribbean Series.
Ramirez is expected to see time at all three outfield positions, and it wouldn’t be out of the question for him to get an inning or two at first base.
