A look back on the 2016 season of outfielder James Ramsey, who was on the Dodgers' 40-man roster for seven weeks and in the organization for nearly four months.

What went right

Ramsey was acquired with utility man Zach Walters from the Indians for cash considerations on Apr. 10, 2016.

A Cardinals first-round pick in 2012, Ramsey played all three outfield positions for Triple-A Oklahoma City, starting 28 games in right field, 25 games in left field and 13 games in center field.

After a slow start, Ramsey hit .306/.390/.435 with seven doubles and three home runs in 43 games in June and July combined.

What went wrong

Ramsey started his season with Oklahoma City just 2-for-23, and hit .170/.250/.404 in 16 games in April.

The Dodgers designated Ramsey for assignment on May 28, then after he cleared waivers sent him outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City on June 4.

Ramsey was traded to the Mariners for cash considerations on Aug. 4 in a minor league deal.
