Tigers call up Wilkin Ramirez

Top outfield prospect Wilkin Ramirez is going to get his first taste of the big leagues while Magglio Ordonez is away. The Tigers recalled him from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday to fill Ordonez’s roster spot, which opened up when he was placed on the family medical emergency list.

Aside from a huge stolen base total, Ramirez had been slumping with the Mud Hens of late until he went on a tear last week. He had a four-hit, two-homer game Saturday at Charlotte, followed by a 3-for-3 performance Sunday. For the year, the 23-year-old is batting .316 with five homers, 13 RBIs, 23 runs scored and 14 stolen bases in 17 attempts.

Hopefully JL will get him into the lineup tonight. I know that with position players he usually gets them in right away. I am sure at the expense of Josh Anderson.

Nice numbers, hey? He’s the future.

Josh could help himself a lot by cutting down on the mental mistakes. I always thought the Braves had a good farm system, but now I wonder a little bit. He should at least have learned to hit the cutoff man.

Good point about Josh. But it could be argued that Leyland could help Josh Anderson a lot by playing him more often. But Leyland’s doesn’t play small ball, so bum luck Anderson. He can hardly do worse over the long haul than Rayburn or Thomas. At least he brings something different to the table: speed. Anyway, I’m excited about Ramirez. Does this mean that they’ll finally, finally send down Raburn when Maggs returns? Please???

I think what amazes me is that the Tigers are doing so well and at this point there is no ‘set’ roster. It is a mix & match line up, which for some teams would be a disaster.

Hope to see Wilkin tonight, I don’t know much about him.
Dontrelle, my fingers are crossed for you.

Going to be an interesting series, I can’t see this as a cake walk.

Go Tigers

Goodge, I wouldn’t count on Raburn going down just because Ramirez is here. Unless Wilkin hits for the cycle or something. Besides, even Raburn will run out of options at some point. At any rate, for anyone who hasn’t seen Ramirez, he is one impressive looking specimen when he stands into the box. Doesn’t mean he’ll do anything at this point, but he does catch your eye.

I was just reading Lynn Henning and he says that Galarraga does indeed have options, so I’ll have to assume that’s the case. That could come in VERY handy.

Good morning TigaBloggers. I’m sitting here at home getting a break from my fourth grade “wonders” because of the crud. So much of for the pity party. I haven’t posted in a while, and I just wanted to make a couple of quick points. We are heading for the quarter stretch in mighty good shape. Who would have thought that without Willis or Bonderman that the Tiger 5 would have been so settled; let’s make that Tiger 4.5 with Mondo’s recent problems. Who would have thought that we would be 6 up in the lost column on the Twins after being swept by them? Bless you George Steinbrenner. Who would have thought that the absence of normal performances by Maggs, Polly, no Thames, no Guillen, and even an uneven performance by Grandy would be overshadowed by the likes of Everett, Santiago, Anderson, Thomas, and of course my hero, the Binge Man? And don’t forget our non offensive catching trio so far. Think about it. Pitching and defense! Cabrera! Young arms! It almost makes you want to give Leyland a break. Okay, Rich, we won’t go that far. What we have seen so far this year that we didn’t see last season was Leyland’s dreaded C word. Chemistry! Team! it usually works most all of the time. I’m celebrating my 50th. year as a Tiger fan having a great time. My wife got me MLB extra innings again, and i don’t think she will divorce me
yet. See you in Baltimore next weekend Rich. Boy, do I bleed Tiger Blue.
