Manager Ron Washington said on his weekly radio show Tuesday on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM that there is no rush to bring Ramirez up to the major leagues.

"We're just going to let it play itself out," Washington said. "The more at-bats he gets, the better."

Ramirez will be back with Triple-A Round Rock when the Express resume their Pacific Coast League schedule Thursday at home after a three-day All-Star Break.

Ramirez is 6-for-14 with two home runs in his last three games and is batting .300 through eight games.
