Victor Black to the DL, Jhonatan Ramos to West Virginia

The West Virginia Power have placed Victor Black on the 7-day disabled list.  Left handed pitcher Jhonatan Ramos has been added to the West Virginia roster to take Black’s place.  Black recently was added to the West Virginia roster, but struggled in his first two outings, going 4.2 innings and allowing five runs on three hits, with five walks and eight strikeouts.

Black looked good in his first start, striking out seven and walking two in four innings, with three runs allowed.  He didn’t make it out of the first inning in his next start, getting just two outs and allowing two runs on one hit, with three walks and a strikeout.

Ramos spent two seasons with the VSL Pirates, prior to making his debut in the US last year.  Ramos pitched 34.2 innings with the GCL Pirates in 2009, with a 1.82 ERA, an 8.6 K/9, a 0.8 BB/9, and an 0.5 HR/9 ratio.  Ramos made four starts in his eight appearances in the GCL last year, and was a full time starter in the VSL in his two years there.  It’s possible that he could enter the starting mix in West Virginia, especially with Black injured.
