Ramirez was signed to a minor league contract back on July 3, and was sent to Triple-A Round Rock to play. However General Manager Jon Daniels said that the Rangers had no room for him at the MLB level, and that he made the move now so he can pursue other opportunities.
But based on his performance, chances are highly unlikely that most teams will want to take a flyer on him. In 108 plate appearances, he held a .258 average with three homers and only six extra-base hits. According to a scout who saw Ramirez three weeks ago, he said the 41-year old showed "no bat speed and no power."
