The Baltimore Orioles announced Sunday that minor league infielder Ramon Ramirez died in a motorcycle accident Saturday night in the Dominican Republic.

"As a member of the Orioles organization, Ramon worked tirelessly to make the most of his opportunity to play professional baseball," said Dan Duquette, the team's executive vice president of baseball operations. "Our thoughts are with his family, friends, teammates and coaches as we mourn this unimaginable loss."  

Ramirez joined the organization as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He played 32 games that year in the Dominican Summer League, and in 2015, he spent time with Baltimore's Rookie League, short-season A and High-A affiliates.

In 55 career minor league games, Ramirez batted .238 with 18 runs batted in and 11 stolen bases.
