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.
Jul 4 - 12:49 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.

Jul 3 - 9:11 PM

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.
May 20 - 11:25 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.
May 18 - 12:43 AM

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.
May 13 - 1:43 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.
May 7 - 10:50 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.
May 1 - 4:59 PM

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.
Apr 26 - 10:32 PM

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.
Apr 20 - 6:37 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.
Apr 14 - 5:32 PM

Cesar Ramos wasn't impressive in his first start of the season Sunday, allowing four runs over just two innings in a loss to the Reds.

Ramos walked three and also allowed three hits, including one that left the yard. He needed 47 pitches to cover the two frames. With Alex Cobb (oblique) joining Matt Moore (elbow) and Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) on the disabled list, Ramos should get at least another shot or two to improve. He'll get the Yankees later this week.
Apr 13 - 5:16 PM

Cesar Ramos will start on Sunday against the Reds.

The Rays opted to move Ramos from the bullpen to the rotation rather than bring Erik Bedard up from Triple-A. Ramos competed for a rotation spot in spring training and pitched well -- posting a 3.45 ERA and 13/1 K/BB ratio -- before ultimately losing out to Jake Odorizzi. AL-only leaguers should take a shot on him.
Apr 11 - 5:53 PM

Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said that Cesar Ramos and Erik Bedard are the main candidates to take Matt Moore's (elbow) rotation spot.

He listed Nate Karns and Mike Montgomery as outside candidates. Ramos has made just three starts in 143 appearances as a major leaguer, but he was a candidate for the No. 5 spot this spring before losing out to Jake Odorizzi. Bedard opted out of his minor league deal with the Rays when he didn't win the fifth spot but wound up re-signing when he couldn't find a major league gig elsewhere.
Apr 8 - 6:46 PM

Cesar Ramos pitched 5 1/3 innings out of the pen on Saturday, allowing two runs for a save against the Pirates.

Ramos has made just three starts in 143 appearances as a major leaguer, but he's in the running for the fifth spot in Tampa Bay's rotation with Jeremy Hellickson out. He's given up four runs in nine innings this spring.
