"My sinker sinks better when I pitch a lot and I can keep my pitches down." - Ramon Troncoso
Ramon Troncoso made his debut with the 2008 Dodgers.
Troncoso, from the Dominican Republic, was signed by scout Pablo Peguero for the Dodgers in 2002. He played for the DSL Dodgers East in 2002-2003 and both the DSL Dodgers 1 and DSL Dodgers 2 in 2004. He then pitched from 2005-07 in the minors, posting a record of 18-9 with 43 saves, mostly in Single A ball. He moved up to Double A for most of 2007.
Troncoso was the most-heavily-used pitcher on the Dodgers' staff when sent down to the minors in early July 2010 in a surprising move by manager Joe Torre. He was leading the team in pitching appearances and also leading relievers in innings pitched.
