Reporter Kwon Hyeok-joon = Outfielder Henry Ramos (31), who played for KT Wiz in the KBO League last year, signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds and aims to reenter the big league.
Reporter John Heyman of the New York Post, USA, said on his SNS on the 10th (Korean time) that “Ramos, who played for KT in the KBO League last year, signed a minor league contract with Cincinnati.”
This contract also guaranteed an invitation to major league spring camp, and Ramos got the opportunity to take a ‘snow stamp’ of the club before the season. 스포츠토토
Ramos, a Puerto Rican right-handed right-handed outfielder, was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the fifth round of the 2010 draft.
After a long life in the minor leagues, he was called up to the major leagues in 2021 based on his performance in Triple-A and debuted with the Arizona Diamondbacks. His major league performance was 10-for-50 (0.200) with one home run and eight RBIs in 18 games.
Later, Ramos, who signed a contract with KT ahead of the 2022 season, struggled to adapt to the league. To make matters worse, he suffered a fractured toe and was cut off from his power and eventually left Korea.
His record in Korea, where he stayed for about a month, was 18 hits (0.250), 3 homers and 11 RBIs in 72 at-bats in 18 games.
