And yes, he is referred as the Cuban Missile.
Here is the piece on Ramirez taken from that link:Market Value:
Moderate Buy (all leagues), Strong Buy (AL-only)
Lowdown: Ramirez is one of the few White Sox players/staff who doesn't have Ozzie Guillen tire marks imprinted on his back. The Cuban Missile, a favorite Noise sleeper back in March, has reached DEFCON levels with Juan Uribe slowly recuperating from a strained hamstring. Since May 25, the 26-year-old has gone 16-for-44, with two homers, six RBI, seven runs and a steal. His five multi-hit games over that span have spiked his batting average 61 points. Defensively, Ramirez, a natural outfielder, is rough around the edges at second, but he's adjusted quickly to the nuances of the position, which makes him serviceable enough to remain entrenched there. As predicted back in late March, his scorching offensive contributions have led Jabbarjaw (Guillen) to play him regularly over Uribe. Given his appreciable contact (77.7 CT%) numbers, Ramirez will be a serviceable stat supplier over the next few weeks. If he continues to play everyday, he possesses the physical gifts to be a 15-15 player.
Owners in 12-team mixed leagues struggling with Aaron Hill and Freddy Sanchez should give the wiry Cuban an audition.
