Yefrey Ramirez Wins Second Florida State League “Pitcher of the Week”

Tampa Yankees’ pitcher Yefrey Ramirez has been named to his second “Pitcher of the Week” award with his performance against the Dunedin Jays last week. Yefrey pitched six perfect innings against the first-place Jays, and had a no-hitter through seven. With his eight innings he’d shut the Jays out, something a pitcher wasn’t able to do since a month before last Tuesday’s game.

Yefrey would lose his no-hitter in the eighth inning, but his eight strikeouts and no walks would still be more than enough to earn himself the stunning win. Ramirez has the ability to strikeout any batter, and he took advantage of it in his ‘Pitcher of the Week’ performance. Yefrey has been a bit inconsistent since joining High-A Tampa from Low-A Charleston, where he held a 2.80 ERA. However, his last performance could be the start of something that the Yankees need badly. That happens to be consistent pitching, as Tampa has been dealing with injuries to their rotation frequently over the last couple of months.

With Domingo Acevedo and Domingo German on and off the DL, James Reeves back in the bullpen, and Josh Rogers awaiting a possible promotion to Double-A Trenton, Yefrey could be the one to lead Tampa through the playoffs with Justus Sheffield still getting used to his new group of opponents.
