Royals Acquire Ramon Ramirez

According to Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies traded reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Royals for a player to be named later.  In an accompanying move, the Royals designated Jorge de la Rosa for assignment.

The 26 year-old righty reliever has posted some big-time strikeout rates at various stops.  He’s a former outfielder who has bounced around in the Yankees, Reds, and Rockies organizations.  He even did a stint in Japan.  In 2005, Baseball America described Ramirez’s power repertoire as a 92-94 mph heater, a hard curveball, and a splitter.
