The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed veteran left-handed pitcher Jhonathan Ramos for the 2016 season.
Ramos posted a 2.32 ERA over six starts in the Baltimore Orioles’ organization last year, splitting time with the High-A Carolina League’s Frederick Keys and the Double-A Eastern League’s Bowie Baysox.
“I’m excited to add Jhonathan to our pitching staff,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “He brings a lot of experience to our club. Although he is just 26 years of age, this will be his 10th year in professional baseball. I look forward to watching Jhonathan perform in a Goldeyes uniform.”
Ramos, a native of San Felipe, Venezuela, is entering his 10th season of professional baseball. He originally signed with the Pirates as an international free agent in 2006.
The Goldeyes now have 20 players under contract for the 2016 season.
