Ramirez was designated for assignment 10 days ago and he'll end up staying in the division. The 27-year-old has walked eight batters in just 7 2/3 innings in the majors this season and has an injury history, but he's a worthwhile flyer for a rebuilding team.

Neil Ramirez is still feeling soreness in his ailing right shoulder.

The update on Ramirez was actually revealed by Justin Grimm, who had been rehabbing with him. "His shoulder is still barking," Grimm said. "They're just going to more slow play it and wait for it to go away. Hopefully we'll get him back soon and take off." Ramirez has been out since mid-April with shoulder inflammation.
