Erasmo Ramirez was 21 years old when he made the Seattle Mariners’ 2012 opening day roster.
He was 22 in May and pitching for the Mariners’ AAA minor-league team, the Tacoma Rainiers.
But the Mariners couldn’t leave the talented right-hander from Nicaragua down on the farm club for too long. He has too much promise, and on June 13, Ramirez was brought back up to take struggling starter Blake Beavan’s place in the rotation.
Since then, Ramirez has learned firsthand how difficult it can be as a starter in the majors, especially when you don’t get much run support.
