From Sportsline:

News: The White Sox will open the season with rookie Alexei Ramirez starting in center field, according to MLB.com. He hit .358 with two home runs in 67 at-bats this spring.

Analysis: Ramirez will likely man center only until Jerry Owens can return from a tear in his groin. The Cuban can also man a few infield positions, though, so he has plenty of value in AL-only leagues. Mixed-league owners shouldn't completely keep him off their radar either.


If he hits better than Uribe, and thats not much askin, he will start even after Owens gets back.
And if his OBP is good enough he could hit first or second. But in that lineup only the 3-4 is set in stone.

The only at-bat I saw him get all Spring he struck out and looked bad doing it. :-D Still, I'm fairly high on this guy, and if he can do so well against what seems to be typically good Cuban pitching, I have few doubts he'll be at the least serviceable in MLB.

Assuming they can find him some PT, he should be a good backup this year, or by mid-season a decent injury replacement. Next year, who knows? The guy could be worth a look in Keeper leagues (which mine is, which is why I picked him up last week).
Keep wreves in General Talk in 2011!

Only helps of chances of clearing waivers (...whenever Yahoo adds him). ;-D

Did you watch his at bats? Looked good striking out, as possible as that may or may not be ;-)

I'm still buying.

I don't doubt that he will have a very solid career and the upside is there, but maybe I'm alone, I don't see him having a huge impact this year.

Really...how so? I didn't catch it as I was busy watching my horse Webb start off another Cy Young campaign. That's right, Johan.

Wow, talk about a hijack... :-o

Seriously though, XRam was working the count?

Yahoo added Ramirez to their player database... ;-D
