Harold Ramirez Placed on Disabled List

The West Virginia Power have placed outfield prospect Harold Ramirez on the 7-day disabled list, making the move retroactive to July 3rd. No immediate word on the injury, though making the move retroactive usually means it isn’t anything serious. As noted earlier, Mike Fransoso was added to the Power roster and he will take the place of Ramirez.  The 19-year-old Ramirez got hurt at a bad time, during a 23-game hit streak, which he will try to add to once he returns. If there is any word on the injury, we will update this article.

Ramirez was on the disabled list earlier this season, missing a month due to a hamstring injury. He was the Pirates tenth ranked prospect coming into the season and he has lived up to that ranking, hitting .309/.364/.402 in 49 games, with 14 doubles and 12 stolen bases.

Update 9:40pm: Ramirez is out with shin splints. Still no word on how much time he will miss, but as noted, the fact they waited four days and made the move retroactive, are usually(not always) good signs for a quick return.

    Damn. Shin splints can linger for months.

      Yeah that’s what I’ve heard, but if it was bad, there would be no reason to make the move retroactive and they probably wouldn’t have waited so long to do it. That’s just the common thinking, but it’s not always that way. Yesterday the Pirates put Barmes on the DL and backdated it, then a short time later said he would miss 4-6 weeks.
