Tigers Call Up Wilkin Ramirez

From the Detriot Tigers article:

Unless he makes a pinch-hit or substitution appearance on Tuesday night, he’s expected to make his Major League debut Wednesday against Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison.

For the season, Ramirez is batting .316 with the Mud Hens, with five home runs, 13 RBIs, 23 runs scored and 14 stolen bases in 17 attempts. That includes a 12-for-22 tear since May 8, with four homers and six RBIs. He had a two-homer, four-hit game on Saturday at Charlotte, then went 3-for-3 with another homer and a stolen base on Sunday.

We at Vinci just want to say we are so happy for him. He is a great person who plays the game hard and with a lot of heart.

Way to go Wilkin!
