Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 60 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45

Originally signed by the D-backs in January 2011, Ramirez spent his pro debut in the Dominican Summer League as an infielder before making the transition to pitching full time the following year. He spent the next four seasons refining his craft in Rookie ball before joining the Yankees via the Minor League phase in the 2015 Rule 5 Draft. Ramirez broke out in his 2016 full-season debut, prompting the Yankees to add him to their 40-man roster in November, and then earned All-Star honors with Double-A Trenton in 2017 before heading to the Orioles in a Trade Deadline deal. After beginning the 2018 season with Triple-A Norfolk, Ramirez was called up for his Major League debut in June and quickly established himself as part of the Orioles' starting rotation.

Operating from a high three-quarters slot, Ramirez will sit comfortably in the low-90s with his fastball while bumping 96. A plus changeup and an inconsistent slider comprise his secondary arsenal, and he's capable of generating whiffs against hitters on both sides of the plate with both. Ramirez has good feel for throwing strikes but below-average command.

With an intriguing blend of stuff, pitchability and bat-missing ability, Ramirez has all the ingredients needed for him to stick as a big league starter. Should he be unable to do so, the right-hander should have no problem offering value as a long-reliever or swingman.
