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. Apr 25 - 11:07 PM

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.
Apr 25 - 4:42 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 5:49 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.
Apr 2 - 2:54 PM

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.
Jan 5 - 5:06 PM

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.

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 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.

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.

Rays activated LHP Cesar Ramos from the paternity leave list.

Jeff Beliveau has been returned to Triple-A. Ramos has posted a 4.18 ERA over 60 1/3 innings this season for the Rays.

Rays placed LHP Cesar Ramos on the paternity leave list.

Ramos can be away from the club for up to three days. Jeff Beliveau has replaced him on the Rays' roster.
Fri, Jul 4, 2014 12:49:00 PM

Cesar Ramos is set to go on paternity leave soon.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said that Ramos' wife Melanie "is due any second now." Jeff Beliveau, who was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, is a likely candidate to be recalled to replace Ramos on the roster.

Cesar Ramos has been moved to the Rays' bullpen.

He gets the boot from the rotation with Alex Cobb (oblique) set to return on Thursday. Ramos was lit up for 13 runs -- nine earned -- over his last two starts, so the demotion comes as no surprise. He should be a weapon in relief for the Rays.
Tue, May 20, 2014 11:25:00 PM

Cesar Ramos lasted just 1 1/3 innings and gave up four runs in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

Ideally, this will be his last start for a while. Alex Cobb is going to return next week and should slide into his rotation spot. Ramos did well in his first four starts of the season, but he's been lit up in the last two. Middle relief is likely his best role.

Cesar Ramos was lit up for nine runs -- five earned -- on 11 hits in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

To his credit, Ramos had served up all nine of those runs by the end of the third inning. Unwilling to abuse his bullpen, Joe Maddon sent the left-hander back out there and Ramos collected three scoreless innings in what was already a laugher. And it's not like his teammates showed up to the park with their "A" games either, committing three errors behind him, with the southpaw committing a throwing error himself in solidarity. Ramos will carry his 3.71 ERA into his next outing against the Angels on the road.
Tue, May 13, 2014 01:43:00 AM

Cesar Ramos got the no-decision, allowing two runs in 5 2/3 innings as the Rays fell to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Ramos made two big mistakes -- both home runs to Adam Jones -- but otherwise pitched well against the O's. The lefty allowed three hits, walked two, and struck out four. Wednesday's start was the deepest he had gone in a start and has mostly been effective since joining the rotation in mid-April. Ramos will carry his 2.96 ERA into his next outing against the Mariners on the road.
