Scouting Report
: Ramirez has an all-around offensive game that was hampered in 2009 and 2010 due to a wrist injury. Before the injury, he consistently showed an excellent ability to make contact, very good power, and solid plate discipline. Early in his career, he was considered a poor defensive catcher that would like need to become a corner infielder, but his defense has improved in recent years. He's still considered a fringe defensive catcher, and likely will still end up as a first baseman or designated hitter down the line. Arm strength, accuracy, and catch-and-throw mechanics are all below average, but he still manages to throw out between 20 and 25% of base runners.  His blocking skills and game calling ability are about average with the potential to be above average.
