Ramos has gained experience in the Chicago Cubs minor league since 2015. He pitched in 107 games in his minor league career (7 years) until last year, recording 7 wins, 16 losses, 7 saves, and an ERA of 5.21. As a professional bullpen resource, he recorded 6 wins, 1 loss, 2 saves, and an ERA of 3.71 in the Mexican League this season. He also stood out in the Cubs’ minor league Double A last year with an ERA of 0.56 in 12 games.
It is known that he has recorded a fastball of up to 99.9 miles (160.8 km/h) this season, so Yomiuri’s expectations are high. A good example is the case of Christopher Mercedes (currently Chiba Lotte Marines), who was recruited as a developing player and grew into a key resource.
