The 42-year-old Ramirez signed with the Cubs on May 25 and had been working out in Mesa, Ariz at the Cubs' facility.
Iowa released outfielder Casper Wells on Wednesday afternoon to make room for Ramirez on their roster.
In 30 games with the Round Rock Express, the Texas Rangers' Triple-A affiliate, Ramirez hit .259 with three home runs and 13 RBI last year.
