Braves Acquire Wilkin Ramirez

The Braves acquired outfielder Wilkin Ramirez from the Tigers for a player to be named later or cash considerations by November 20th, according to the team.  The Tigers had designated Ramirez for assignment on Wednesday to clear a spot for Jhonny Peralta.

Ramirez, 24, has a .230/.295/.458 line between Double and Triple A this year.  Heading into the season Baseball America ranked Ramirez eighth among Tigers prospects, but obviously his stock has dropped since then.  Still, they did praise his "tantalizing five-tool ability."
