'Dany Ramirez

Gets a good word from Mr. Bagwell...[Jeff Bagwell was impressed with many young players he observed during the Elite Camp at Minute Maid Park, but one outfielder in particular really caught his attention.

Keep an eye on Yordany Ramirez, a defensively sound center fielder who could factor into the equation at some point this year.

Ramirez, 23, completed his sixth year in the Padres' system in 2007 before becoming a Minor League free agent. General manager Ed Wade, who worked as a scout for the Padres prior to joining the Astros last September, moved quickly to sign the outfielder and immediately placed him on the 40-man roster.

"I'm a little baffled why San Diego let him go," Bagwell said during a recent airing of "Astroline" with broadcaster Dave Raymond. "He has all the tools. He reminds me of a young Andruw Jones."]

I've been high on this dude since we picked him up. Now I'm even higher on him since Bagwell mentioned him. He hasn't really proven much in the minors, but I'm excited for the dude to get a chance. In the words of Simon Cowell, "He just looks like a star."
