Hello: Wilkin Ramirez, enjoy your coffee!

The Tigers have called up the blazing (fast, and hot) Wilkin Ramirez to the big league squad. A rather unheralded prospect in the offseason, he had a very strong showing in Spring Training and has been superb for the Mudhens so far this year to the tune of
.316, 3 2B, 1 3B, 5 HR, 13 RBI, 14 SB

He will temporarily take the place of Magglio Ordonez, who is on bereavement leave while his wife undergoes surgery. Look to see Ramirez on the basepaths late in the game, although I suppose he could even play a game in lieu of Ryan Raburn or Josh Anderson. Whatever his role, this is just a cup of coffee for him and a chance for us to see one of the system's rising stars in action.

I, for one, would like to begin the call now for a Wilkin Ramirez rookie card in Updates and Highlights.
