Cubs Injury Update: Neil Ramirez activated

By on 8/10/2014 01:00:00 PM

The Chicago Cubs continued to struggle offensively, being shut out by the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday by the score of 4-0. The loss dropped the Cubs to 49-66, last in the National League Central. There hasn't been much to cheer about for Cubs' fans, but there is some good news on the injury front. Rookie relief pitcher Neil Ramirez, who has impressed in 33 games this season, has been activated from the disabled list.

Our own Darius Austin reported on August 7 that Ramirez, who was on the disabled list with a triceps injury, struggled in his first rehab appearance. He allowed a run, a hit and a walk in 2/3 of an inning. 

Paul Sullivan, who covers the Cubs for the Chicago Tribune, tweeted the following update on Ramirez.
Ramirez was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the first round in 2007.  In seven Minor League seasons, he complied a record of 36-35 with a 4.40 ERA. Ramirez, a 25-year old rookie, is 1-1 with a miniscule 0.96 ERA. In 28 innings, he's allowed only 16 hits, three earned runs, 10 walks and struck out 36.
