Cubs Send Catcher Ramirez To Triple-A

The Chicago Cubs have sent catcher Max Ramirez to Triple-A Iowa, their 40-man roster now stands at 37 players.

Ramirez split his 2010 season between the Texas Rangers and their Triple-A affiliate. In his 28 games with the Rangers, Ramirez hit .217 (15-for-69) with three doubles, two home runs, eight RBI and a .341 on-base percentage.

The Cubs claimed Ramirez off waivers on January 10, from the Boston Red Sox.

    POOPY PANTS!! FIDDLESTICKS!!!! When I first read this I hoped against hope that Scurvy Rickets had somehow figured how to send big fat Aramis back down to the farm to learn how to run out every swing and move laterally while playing third?


    • Ross Scaneo

      Injury was a major reason for Aram to play poorly. He could have just sat out, but he chose to play hurt.
      He will rebound to be his old self. He did very well the last half of 2010. It is hard to discern your negativism considering the facts.

    send Hill packing, dealt with the wrong guy,AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Ross Scaneo

      I disagree. Hill’s win loss record when he catches is reason to play him more than a normal backup. Plus he bats left handed.

  • Ross Scaneo

    Max is a good man to have down on the farm. Castillo would be the first catcher called up before Max. The cubs may consider trading Soto or Castillo befor the year is out if the need arises. I hope not.
