The Yankees trade Edwar Ramirez to the Rangers

Mar 9, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

When the Yankees got Chan Ho Park they needed roster room, so they DFA’d Edwar Ramirez. Today they unloaded him for cash to Texas.

Ramirez has always struck out a ton of dudes, but he’s dinger-prone and walks a lot of guys. Still, he’s definitely someone that can help a bullpen — strikeouts from relievers are super duper important, and he has improved a bit — but the Yankees just didn’t have room for him after the Park signing, and it’s not like they were going to eat Chad Gaudin’s $2.95 million, for example.

As for Texas’ end of the deal (1) where are they getting cash all of a sudden?; and (2) with C.J. Wilson, Neftali Feliz, Darren
O’Day, Darren Oliver and several other good relievers in the fold, it’s gonna be tough for Ramirez to find a spot.  But hey, when it comes to bullpen arms, the more the merrier.

    Edwar just needs to pitch in a city that’s not very windy. One big gust and he’ll be blown straight off the field

    Everything’s bigger in Texas, except Edwar.

    We’ll take what we can get. If he can throw or has been on a pitchers mound at least once, we’ll take him and give him opening day.
