Phillies signed LHP Cesar Ramos to a minor league contract.
Ramos posted an ugly 6.04 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 16 appearances last year for the Rangers before getting released in late July. He then latched on with the Tigers on a minor league deal but didn't make it up to Detroit. The left-hander will operate as organizational pitching depth for Philly in 2017. He has experience as both a starter and reliever over parts of eight major league seasons. Jan 5 - 2:52 PM

Tigers signed LHP Cesar Ramos to a minor league contract.

Ramos elected free agency earlier this month after being removed from the Rangers' 40-man roster. The left-hander will provide some versatile depth with the ability to start or relieve.

Rangers designated LHP Cesar Ramos for assignment.

Ramos has put up an awful 6.04 ERA while splitting time between the bullpen and rotation. He could clear waivers.

Cesar Ramos was obliterated in Monday's loss to the A's, yielding eight runs (six earned) on eight hits over 3 2/3 innings.

Ramos handed out five walks in his brief time on the mound. The A's drove him from the game via a five-run fourth inning. That followed on the heels of a four-run third. He was starting in place of Yu Darvish (shoulder). Darvish is hitting the disabled list, but Ramos might not necessarily stick in the rotation for the entirety of his absence. Monday's outing was certainly less than encouraging.

Cesar Ramos is expected to start for the Rangers on Monday in place of Yu Darvish.

Ramos was outstanding in his last spot start, hurling six innings of one-run ball against the Astros. The Rangers are expected to add another pitcher on Monday, perhaps with Darvish heading to the disabled list, though it looks as though Ramos will start with the ball against the Athletics.

Cesar Ramos was phenomenal in Saturday's win over the Astros, tossing six innings of one-run ball.

Ramos struck out four, walked one and surrendered just two hits on the evening. Marwin Gonzalez cracked a solo home run in the fourth inning to account for the lone run on the veteran southpaw's line. He isn't guaranteed future starts, but Saturday's results helped his cause. He has allowed two runs on nine hits over his last 10 1/3 innings. If Ramos makes another start, it will come against the Pirates.

Cesar Ramos pitched decently in a spot start against the Blue Jays on Sunday, allowing one run on seven hits over his 4 1/3 innings.

Ramos also issued a pair of walks while striking out four on the afternoon. While he wasn't dominant by any means, he did enough to keep his team in the ballgame, which is all that was asked of him. Even if he manages to stick around and make another start for the Rangers, he isn't worthy of fantasy consideration.

Cesar Ramos was charged with three runs over six innings in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Ramos allowed nine hits, walked two and struck out five. The Rangers needed him to make a spot start with Cole Hamels (groin) banged up. The left-hander is surely headed back to Triple-A Round Rock's rotation.

Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Cesar Ramos from Triple-A Round Rock.

Ramos will make the start Monday against the Yankees after Cole Hamels had to be scratched because of a strained left groin muscle. The 31-year-old southpaw had a 3.18 ERA and 10/2 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings over his first three starts in Triple-A this year, but he has mostly been a reliever in the majors. He's not a fantasy option.

The Rangers plan to promote Cesar Ramos from Triple-A Round Rock to start against the Yankees on Monday.

It's just expected to be a spot start for the 31-year-old left-hander. He owns a 3.18 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 10/2 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings in three starts at Round Rock this season. He can be safely avoided for fantasy purposes.
Sun, Apr 24, 2016 05:49:00 PM

Rangers assigned LHP Cesar Ramos to Triple-A Round Rock.

The 31-year-old southpaw accepted his assignment to Round Rock where he'll begin the season as rotation depth for the Rangers. He should get an opportunity with the big league club relatively early during the 2016 season.

Rangers signed LHP Cesar Ramos to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ramos was non-tendered by the Angels last month after putting up a 2.75 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 43/15 K/BB ratio across 52 1/3 innings in 2015. Just 10 of Ramos' 251 career major league appearances have come as a starter, but the Rangers plan to stretch him out this spring. Ultimately, his best chance of cracking the Opening Day roster is probably in long relief.

Angels non-tendered LHP Cesar Ramos.

With the move, Ramos enters the free agent pool. He would have been eligible for arbitration otherwise. The 31-year-old southpaw reliever pitched respectably enough for the Angels in 2015, holding a 2.75 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 43/15 K/BB ratio across 52 1/3 innings. Given his success at the major league level, it shouldn't be too difficult for him to find another home.
Wed, Dec 2, 2015 09:29:00 PM

Angels and LHP Cesar Ramos avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3125 million contract.

It's right in line with the $1.3 million MLBTradeRumors.com projected him to make in his second year of arbitration. Acquired from the Rays via trade in November, Ramos will be part of the Angels' bullpen next season.
Thu, Jan 15, 2015 06:57:00 PM

Angels acquired LHP Cesar Ramos from the Rays for RHP Mark Sappington.

Ramos had a 3.70 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 66/39 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings (seven starts and 36 relief appearances) this past season with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old left-hander will presumably be in the running for a bullpen job next spring in Angels camp.
