Max Ramirez on the move once again
Former Texas Rangers catcher Max Ramirez is packing his suitcase once again.
Less than a week after he was placed on waivers by the Rangers and claimed by the Boston Red Sox, Ramirez is one the move again. The Red Sox then put Ramirez on waivers, and he was snatched up by the Chicago Cubs.
Ramirez, 26, split 2010 between the Rangers and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He played 56 games with OKC, batting .286 with nine doubles, three homers, 29 RBIs and a .373 on-base percentage. With the Rangers, Ramirez hit .217 with three doubles, two homers and eight RBIs in 28 games.
Ramirez was originally signed by the Atlanta Braves (2002), was traded to the Cleveland Indians in 2006 and joined the Rangers in 2007 as part of the Kenny Lofton trade.
