GLENDALE, Ariz. -- While Alexei Ramirez is looking forward to taking the next step in his development as he enters his fifth full season with the Chicago White Sox, the shortstop also plans to keep an eye on the progression of fellow Cuban Yoenis Cespedes.

Cespedes signed a four-year, $36 million contract with the Oakland A's on Feb. 13, turning down an offer from the Miami Marlins. The White Sox and Cubs were also reportedly interested in the outfielder.

“I’m really excited to play against him,” Ramirez said. “The guy’s a great player, has great talent, and it’s something that you really won’t be able to see until you see him play this year. But I’m excited because I think everything I said about him will come true.”
