Career Minor-Leaguer Called Up By The Arizona Diamondbacks

Outfielder Henry Ramos has spent 11 years in the minors and has yet to play in a regular season game in the majors. However, that is all set to change, as the 29-year-old has been called up by the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

When looking at how well Ramos has played this season with Triple-A Reno, it makes a ton of sense that he's getting his chance. In 75 games, he led the league with a .371 batting average and had 12 home runs with 57 RBIs. With the Diamondbacks sporting a 45-92 record, they certainly have no reason not to give this career minor-leaguer a shot. 

Interestingly, Ramos started a benches-clearing brawl two nights ago against the Tacoma Rainers. The video of it is attached below.

Regardless, it is an awesome story to see Ramos make the Diamondbacks after so many years battling it out in the minors. It may have taken 916 minor-league games, but now, he can call himself a major-league baseball player.
