Indians signed RHP Neil Ramirez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ramirez put up an ugly 7.18 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in 31 1/3 innings of relief this past season between the Giants and Mets. The 28-year-old right-hander seems doubtful to crack the Indians' bullpen out of camp next spring.

Nationals signed RHP Neli Ramirez to a minor league contract.

Ramirez has jumped around this year, spending time with four organizations. He's underwhelmed at the big league level, producing a sluggish 7.18 ERA over 29 appearances this year. The right-hander will report to Triple-A Syracuse.

Neil Ramirez has elected to become a free agent.

Ramirez cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Mets late last week. The 28-year-old owns a rough 7.18 ERA over 29 appearances in the majors this season between the Giants and Mets. He'll try to find a new opportunity elsewhere.

Mets sent RHP Neil Ramirez outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ramirez cleared waivers after being removed from the 40-man roster and will accept an outright assignment. He's struck out well over a batter per inning with a few clubs this season but has also posted a 7.18 ERA.

Mets designated RHP Neil Ramirez for assignment.

Ramirez has allowed 30 runs -- 25 earned -- in 31 1/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. Josh Smoker was activated from the disabled list Thursday in a corresponding roster move.

Mets signed RHP Neil Ramirez to a major league contract.

He'll immediately join the active roster, as Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) has been placed on the disabled list. Ramirez has been designated for assignment twice this season while posting an 8.71 ERA over nine appearances, but he has averaged 10.8 K/9 over 96 appearances in the majors. The Mets' bullpen is hurting in a big way right now, so they are willing to take a flier.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are signing right-hander Neil Ramirez to a major league deal.

Ramirez elected free agency over the weekend rather than accept an outright assignment from the Blue Jays. The 27-year-old has allowed 15 runs in 10 1/3 innings this season, but he has fanned 18 batters in that time. The Mets have a 5.26 ERA from their relievers and are looking for upside wherever they can find it.

Neil Ramirez has elected free agency.

Ramirez cleared waivers after the Blue Jays designated him for assignment, but he had the right to elect free agency because it's the second time in the last few weeks that he was designated. He holds a 13.06 ERA over nine appearances this season, but an 18/4 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings will pique some interest.

Blue Jays sent RHP Neil Ramirez outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Ramirez cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. He didn't make an appearance for Toronto before losing his roster spot.

Blue Jays designated RHP Neil Ramirez for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Mike Bolsinger, who will make a spot start Tuesday against the Indians. Ramirez was just claimed off waivers from the Giants last week, but he could soon be on the move again.

Blue Jays claimed RHP Neil Ramirez off waivers from the Giants.

Ramirez was designated for assignment by San Francisco at the end of April after allowing 15 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings of relief. He had also racked up 18 strikeouts in those 10 1/3 frames, so maybe there's some upside here for Toronto.

Giants designated RHP Neil Ramirez for assignment.

Ramirez had an 18/4 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 relief innings but was pummeled for six runs a week ago in Colorado and again on Saturday at home. Bryan Morris will take his spot in the bullpen.

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Neil Ramirez from Triple-A Sacramento.

Ramirez was up and down this spring but earned a job, anyway. He'll be used in middle relief.
Sun, Apr 2, 2017 02:33:00 PM

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Neil Ramirez is expected to exercise his opt-out clause on Friday if he doesn't make the Giants' Opening Day roster.

Ramirez has seen mixed results this spring, compiling a 3.72 ERA over 10 relief outings. As is, he's probably on the outside looking in for a roster spot. The 27-year-old made 18 appearances for three different clubs last season. He's developing a reputation as a journeyman.
