A player the Reds might lose in the Rule V draft
This player has been left unprotected on the 40 man roster by Cincinnati and thus eligible to be drafted: Elizardo Ramirez.
I did a little research and this tidbit of info jumped out:
June 14, 2006
"Ramirez strikes out 10 in Reds' victory"
"Reds' righthander Elizardo Ramirez tossed eight scoreless innings with a career-high 10 strikeouts Wednesday, getting a no decision in Cincinnati's 3-0 victory in 11 innings over Milwaukee; Ramirez (2-5, 3.44 ERA) scattered five hits and walked just one in the longest outing of his young career."
For some reason I think this guy can put together a decent career if he is surrounded by a better bullpen coach now that Hume is gone. As the story mentions above, he can start too and be effective. The price is right for someone wanting to take a chance on him.
Thoughts about EZ? Do you think anyone else left unprotected will be claimed?
