Small nugget from #Brewers minor-league system: 1B Nick Ramirez and C Parker Berberet are beginning the process of becoming pitchers.

Todd Rosiak ‏@Todd_Rosiak 2m2 minutes ago
Ramirez, a 2011 fourth-round pick of the Brewers, was 16 for 16 as a closer that year at Cal State-Fullerton. Also a lefty.

Berberet was a 25th-round pick in 2011. Both he and Ramirez worked over the past month with Chris Hook at Class AA Biloxi.

Berberet also worked with Fred Dabney at Class AAA Colorado Springs. Both will jump in head-first in instructionals in then next two weeks.

Ramirez the new Kieschnick!

Ramirez has thrown a few live BP's and is heading to the Instructional League in AZ. He's legit. Great curve ball.

Remembering that Ramirez was a very successful closer in college, I was surprised to see that they hadn't made the switch sooner. Given his relative lack of success with the bat.

good luck to the both of them. on a side, reading about how long it takes to develop knuckleball pitchers, but how effective it can be once mastered, I wonder why more teams don't encourage some of the back end pitchers to develop it.

I remember the 2011 draft and looking through some top 250 list and thinking that the one guy I did not want them to draft in the first 5-6 rounds was Nick Ramirez. Seemed like he was pretty average - relative to other college 1B - with his hit tool. He did better than I thought he would, and I thought he would spend some time in the OF to take advantage of his arm and become a utility player, but ultimately I thought that he had limited upside and would struggle with OBP due to a low BA and high K totals, which is what materialized.

Hopefully he can become a good reliever and revive his career.

Since the Brewers seem insistent on developing gimmicky side arm pitchers why not add a couple of nuckleballers as well?

Found this quote interesting:

"That name (Kieschnick) was thrown out there,” Flanagan said. “And obviously being left-handed and playing first base, you never know what you can do with that."

Experience playing 1B... I'm thinking double switches, but instead of burning through a lefty for one batter, Ramirez could move to 1B if a RHH (or a couple of them) is up next, then move back to the mound for subsequent lefties. Also would not necessarily need to PH for him; he's not going to be a great hitter in the majors, but he can be good enough to save that PH for later.

Stearns taking his flexibility predilection to a whole new level.
