Wilkin Ramirez To Be Minor League Free Agent

The Braves have removed Wilkin Ramirez from the 40-man roster, allowing him to qualify for minor league free agency in November, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America.  The Braves acquired Ramirez from the Tigers on July 31st.

In 24 games for Atlanta's Triple-A affiliate, Ramirez hit .253/.351/.458 with four homers.  Heading into this season, Baseball America rated the outfielder as the eighth best prospect in Detroit's system.  The publication said that while he was unpolished, he still possessed "tantalizing five-tool ability".  

The trade deadline deal calls for the Braves to send the Tigers a player to be named later or cash considerations by November 20th.

  1. Not sure that I understand this move. Braves do not have many outfielders in the upper minors with this much talent. Why wouldn’t they keep him on the 40 man roster until they had to adjust if prior to the minor league draft?

  3. Wilkin can’t hit a curve ball. Simple as that.
