Biographical Information[edit]

Ari Ronick pitched his fourth season in the minors in 2011.

Ronick was picked by the Cincinnati Reds in the 38th round of the 2007 amateur draft after his junior year of college, two picks before Robbie Weinhardt. The big lefty returned for a 4th year at the University of Portland and won 4 games with a 5.03 ERA. Overall, he had 12 wins and a 5.06 ERA in college. The San Francisco Giants chose him in the 12th round of the 2008 amateur draft; the scout was Matt Woodward.

Ronick debuted as a pro with the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, going 4-1 with a 4.05 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 60 innings. In 2009, he turned in a fine 7-6, 2.65 campaign for the Augusta Greenjackets. He was second in the South Atlantic League in ERA, trailing Juan Nicasio by .24. Rudy Owens was named the league's All-Star southpaw instead. An elbow injury cut his 2010 short after 3 rocky games for the San Jose Giants (0-2, 10.80). Returning as a reliever in 2011, he was 3-1 with a save and a 3.56 ERA in 45 outings for San Jose, walking 36 in 60 2/3 IP.
