Ramon Ramirez has yet to report to Mariners' camp due to visa issues.

It's certainly not going to help his chances at winning a bullpen spot. Ramirez was a very effective reliever from 2008-11, compiling a 2.77 ERA. However, the 32-year-old bottomed out last year, spending most of the season in the minors. This is the second straight year he's dealt with visa issues.

Mariners signed RHP Ramon Ramirez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ramirez made six appearances with the Giants last season before being designated for assignment in July. He eventually latched on with the Rays and made a handful of appearances between High-A Charlotte and Triple-A Durham. The 32-year-old has struggled in the majors over the past two seasons, but he could be in the mix for a bullpen spot in the spring.

Giants released RHP Ramon Ramirez.

It's a bit of a surprise, as Ramirez appeared likely to earn a bullpen spot after being inked to a minor league deal last month. However, he reported late to camp due to a visa issue and then posted an 11.25 ERA over eight appearances. The owner of a career 3.32 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over seven seasons, Ramirez won't be out of a job long.

Sun, Feb 17, 2013 10:59:00 AM

Ramon Ramirez is expected to report late to Giants' camp due to visa issues.

Just as long as it doesn't drag on too long, it shouldn't affect his bid for an Opening Day roster spot. Ramirez held a 4.24 ERA and 52/35 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings with the Mets last season, but he enjoyed success out of the Giants' bullpen from 2010-2011.
