CPBL Foreign Players Updates Volume #159
Fubon Guardians News: JC Ramirez
It would appear the Fubon Guardians have no intention of slowing down when it comes to signing foreign players. On December 28, the Guardians announced the signing of 32-year-old right-hander JC Ramírez as their fifth foreign pitcher.
“JC Ramirez has a dominating fastball along with several sharp breaking pitches,” said the Guardians general manager. “After seeing him in action in the Mexican winter league, we decided to sign him to strengthen our team.”
According to source, the Fubon Guardians were in touch with JC Ramirez last year, but both parties failed to reach an agreement. Ramírez is set to report to the team before February 1, 2021.
JC Ramirez was active in the MLB from 2013 to 2019 pitching for several MLB organisations. He is best known for his 2017 season with the Angels where he posted a 4.15 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 147.1 innings.
During the 2020 offseason, he went down to Mexico and pitched for the Tomateros de Culiacan of the LMP. As of December 28, he posted a dominating 1.74 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 41.1 innings.
