Ramirez Headed for Free Agency?

According to multiple reports, Aramis Ramirez’s days as a Cub could be coming to an end. Ramirez left Tuesday’s game after the sixth inning with a mild right quad strain and is doubtful for the home finale on Wednesday. Ramirez was asked about his future with the Cubs.

Ramirez said, “Yeah, there is a good chance I’m a free agent. I don’t know what’s happening, but it looks like I’m going to hit the market.” According to Bruce Levine, Ramirez’s agent, Paul Kinzer, is scheduled to meet with interim GM Randy Bush at some point over the next two days to discuss Ramirez’s future with the Cubs. Ramirez is looking for a three-year contract.

Aramis Ramirez said that he has not spoken with Tom Ricketts or anyone in the Cubs’ front office and thinks he is “ready to move on.” Ramirez would like to stay with the Cubs and he feels he can play three more years.
