(8/23/13) The Cubs acquired pitching prospect Neil Ramirez off waivers Friday, completing the Matt Garza trade with the Rangers as the player to be named later.
Ramirez was initially included in the deal before a biceps strain forced the Cubs to hold off on acquiring the 24-year-old.
Ramirez put up a 3.84 ERA in 103 innings for Double-A Frisco. The Cubs assigned him to Double-A Tennessee to finish out the season.
|Neil Ramirez placed on minor league disabled list |

(7/24/13) Rangers prospect pitcher Neil Ramirez has been placed on the minor league disabled list at Double-A Frisco with a biceps strain, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Ramirez was initially projected to be a part of the Cubs-Rangers trade that sent Matt Garza to Texas, but his biceps strain was apparently the injury snag that held up the deal. If the Cubs are satisfied with his recovery from the injury, he could still end up heading to Chicago as a player to be named later in the deal. It's unclear when he will return from the injury, however.

(7/23/13) The Rangers are expected to send pitcher Neil Ramirez over to the Cubs as the fourth and final player in the trade that brought Matt Garza to Texas, the Dallas Morning News reports Tuesday.
Ramirez was one of Chicago's top choices as the player to be named later, but left his last game with Double-A Frisco after just three innings due to a shoulder issue. Ramirez going to the Cubs has not become official yet.

(5/10/13) After going 8-13 with a 6.28 ERA in 28 games last season with Triple-A Round Rock and Double-A Frisco, Rangers pitching prospect Neil Ramirez has gotten off to a great start this year. Ramirez, who is considered the team's 17th-best prospect by MLB.com, allowed one run over 6 2/3 innings Thursday night with Frisco.
The right-hander is 3-0 with a 2.75 ERA in seven starts to go along with 44 strikeouts and 18 walks. He has only surrendered one home run and opponents are hitting just .155 off him.
"He has been good all year," Frisco manager Steve Buechele told MLB.com. "It's not just the stuff. He seems more relaxed and more confident. He's a different person, as well as a different pitcher. Everybody has seen the stuff from Neil over the years. But nobody has seen it consistent like we have, and that's a nice step for Neil."
