Name: Matthew Garrett Ramsey
Born: Sep 24, 1989 in Lenoir City, Tenn. USA
High School: Farragut HS, Knoxville, Tenn.

Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 19th round (600th overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011
Teammate Matt Ramsey has bigger stuff, yet hardly pitched this year thanks to his catching and outfield duties as well as a forearm strain. At 6 feet, 200 pounds, Ramsey has strength and a quick arm that allows him to pump his fastball up to 98 mph, sitting at 94-97 in relief stints. He throws two different breaking balls, including a hammer curveball that flashes plus potential. Ramsey has 81 innings of college pitching experience and will need to refine his rough delivery, which probably led to his forearm strain when Tennessee tried to make him a starter. He could be drafted in the first 10 rounds if he has a clean bill of health.
