2 weeks agoAndy Martinez

The Cubs added to their outfield depth Monday afternoon.

The team announced that they had acquired outfielder Harold Ramírez from the Cleveland Guardians for cash considerations. Ramírez, a native of Cartagena, Colombia, was designated for assignment on November 19.

Ramírez has appeared in 221 major-league games and has slashed .271/.308/.405 in that time. He played all three outfield positions last year for Cleveland, including playing a game at first base.

In his big-league career, he has pretty even splits against pitchers from either side, posting an OPS of .713 against righties and a .715 OPS against southpaws. Ramírez has shown a bit more power against righties, hitting 14 of his career 18 homers against right-handers.

In 9 minor league seasons, Ramírez has hit .303 with a .779 OPS and 35 home runs.

It’s the second acquisition the Cubs have made to their big-league roster, after claiming lefty Wade Miley off waivers from the Reds earlier this month. The Cubs 40-man roster now sits at 38.
