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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, May 7, 2014 10:50:00 PM

Cesar Ramos pitched 4 2/3 innings of one-run ball Thursday against the Red Sox in his latest start for the Rays.

Since ascending to the rotation, Ramos still hasn't topped five innings in any of his three starts. However, he's gotten the job done, allowing just two runs in those starts, even though he's walked nine and struck out nine in the process. He's too risky to play in AL-only leagues right now.

Cesar Ramos delivered five scoreless innings in the Rays' 4-0 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Ramos didn't tally a single strikeout and gave up five hits along with two walks, but he worked around the danger by inducing eight groundball outs in his five frames to earn his first win of the season. The 29-year-old lefty will take on the Red Sox at Fenway Park next.

Cesar Ramos allowed one run on four hits over five innings but didn't factor in the decision in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Ramos struggled in his first start but showed a lot more Sunday, walking one while striking out three. He was pressed into action with the injuries to Rays starters Alex Cobb and Matt Moore, and the southpaw likely garnered another start with the positive outing. He'll take the hill Saturday at the White Sox.
Sun, Apr 20, 2014 06:37:00 PM

Cesar Ramos will make at least one more start.

Moved into the rotation due injury, Ramos allowed four runs over just two innings Sunday against the Reds, but the Rays are going to give him at least one more start. He currently lines up to start Friday against the Yankees, though things could change if there's a rainout Tuesday in Baltimore.
