Found April 16, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
MLB News: The Minnesota Twins have reinstated Wilkin Ramirez from the paternity leave list Tuesday. In turn, to make room for Ramirez the Twins sent Oswaldo Arcia back to Triple-A Rochester. Fantasy Ramifications: Ramirez, who has bounced around from the Detroit Tigers, Atlanta Braves and now the Twins in recent years is looking to establish himself as a major league hitter. Until he does so he has very little fantasy value and should be left on the waiver wire with a slight boost if you play in American League only leagues. With that being said, he provides some pop and a little speed, but not much. He shouldn’t be owned in most fantasy formats.
