The Cleveland Baseball Club has claimed the outfielder off waivers after being designated for assignment.
Harold Ramirez is heading to Cleveland. This is after being claimed off waivers after being DFA’d by the Miami Marlins. Miami attempted to trade the outfielder, but were unable to facilitate a trade.
This is an intriguing move for Cleveland. The clear weak spot for the Cleveland Baseball Club has been the outfield for a few years now. The front office is trying to improve that unit by claiming Harold Ramirez in addition to their previous signing of Eddie Rosario. By adding these two into the fold, this group is no longer as pathetic as they have papered in previous seasons.
Harold Ramirez gives Cleveland another option in the outfield and some competition for Oscar Mercado in center field. Ramirez has appeared in 122 games for Miami with a slash line of .274/.311/.411 slash line with an OPS of .722. This includes 20 doubles, 3 triples, 11 home runs, and 51 RBI, numbers that should be intriguing for Cleveland.
