Ramirez becomes the ninth new player signed to play for the Rapids this off-season as they work to distance themselves from a difficult 2014 season. It appears that Ramirez will slot into the 4-2-3-1 formation that the Rapids are looking to play and should provide the attacking pace and presence that the Rapids were lacking in 2014.
