Red Sox claim the ‘other’ Ramon Ramirez
|12.08.09 at 6:13 pm ET|
The Sox claimed Ramon A. Ramirez off release waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays and will be notified if they are awarded the claim Wednesday. Ramirez had been claimed off outright waivers by the Rays after being with the Cincinnati Reds.
The 27-year-old, who like his Red Sox relieving namesake, Ramon Santo Ramirez, throws from the right side, has pitched in 16 games, 11 coming with the Reds in the 2009 season. He started four games for the Reds, finishing last season with a 1-1 records and 2.97 ERA.
Also like the Ramirez currently on the Sox’ roster, Ramon Santo Ramirez is somewhat short in stature for a pitcher, standing at 5-foot-11 and also boasts a changeup as one of his better pitches.
