J.C. Ramirez allowed three earned runs, seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts across five innings in a no-decision Saturday in Seattle.
Ramirez threw just 56 of his 96 pitches for strikes. He has actually been more successful on the road this season than at home, posting a 7-4 record with a 3.64 ERA in 13 appearances (11 starts) as opposed to 3-6 with a 4.80 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) at the Big A. The good news is that his next scheduled start will come on the road next Saturday in Baltimore. Aug 13 - 3:08 AM

J.C. Ramirez fell to 10-10 after giving up six runs in seven innings Monday against the Orioles.

It was two runs in six innings before Manny Machado delivered a grand slam with two down in the seventh. Ramirez previously stayed in the game after taking part of a shattered bat off his shoulder.
Aug 8 - 1:07 AM

J.C. Ramirez blanked the Phillies for eight innings in a victory Wednesday night.

He allowed six hits, walked two and struck out three in earning his 10th win. Ramirez has been pretty solid throughout, and he's cut back on the homers lately, giving up just two in his last six starts. He's still not much of a mixed-league option, but he's given the Angels reason some reason to be optimistic about their 2018 rotation picture.
Aug 3 - 1:03 AM

J.C. Ramirez managed to hold the Indians to two runs over six innings in spite of six walks but still took a loss Thursday.

The six free passes were a season high for Ramirez, who has generally had good control this year but it's wavered on him of late. It could be a function of him tiring in his first year as a starter since 2011. Ramirez will carry a 4.29 ERA into his next start against the Phillies.
Jul 27 - 3:26 PM

J.C. Ramirez allowed three runs - one earned - and five hits with three walks and six strikeouts across six innings in a win against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Ramirez has alternated wins and losses in the month of July, posting quality starts in two of his past three outings while lasting at least six innings in each appearance. The win at home was a rarity, as he is still just 2-5 with a 5.10 ERA over 10 starts and one relief appearance at the Big A. He is 7-3 with a 3.60 ERA in nine starts and two relief outings. His next scheduled start is set for July 27 in Cleveland.
Jul 23 - 4:37 AM

J.C. Ramirez allowed four earned runs, eight hits and a walk with five strikeouts over six innings in Saturday's loss against Tampa Bay.

Ramirez was a little shaky, tossing a wild pitch and finding the strike zone with just 61 of his 91 offerings. He has actually been much better on the road than at home, going 1-5 with a 5.50 ERA across 10 appearances (nine starts) at the Big A and 7-3 with a 3.60 ERA over 11 road appearances (nine starts). Unfortunately for Ramirez and his fantasy owners, the Angels will be home for his next start July 22 against David Price and the Red Sox.
Jul 16 - 3:24 AM

J.C. Ramirez tossed six scoreless innings Sunday in the Angels' 3-0 shutout of the Rangers.

Ramirez issued five walks and only recorded two strikeouts, but he limited the sometimes-dangerous Rangers offense to two hits in the afternoon victory. Ramirez closes out the first half of the 2017 regular season with an 8-7 record, 4.46 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 81/30 K/BB ratio in 103 innings.
Jul 9 - 6:30 PM

J.C. Ramirez surrendered four earned runs over five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Twins.

Ramirez walked two and gave up seven hits while falling to 7-7 on the year. The 28-year-old right-hander has allowed 10 runs -- nine earned -- over his last two starts and has watched his season ERA climb to 4.73. The ongoing inconsistency limits his fantasy streaming appeal.
Jul 4 - 5:46 PM

J.C. Ramirez was knocked about for six runs (five earned) on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Ramirez proved quite susceptible to the home run in this one. Yasiel Puig and Chase Utley both burned him for solo shots in the fifth inning before Joc Pederson put an end to his night with a three-run bomb in the sixth. Ramirez will carry a 4.60 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into a road start against the Twins next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 30 - 1:18 AM

J.C. Ramirez kept the Red Sox to one run over six innings Saturday, leading the Angels to a 6-3 victory.

Ramirez gave up just four hits, one of which was a Mitch Moreland solo home run for the only Sox run against him. He also didn't walk a batter while striking out five. A lot of the shine has worn off the 28-year-old since his surprising start to the season, but he's still 7-5 with a passable 4.38 ERA in 17 appearances. Another tough test is on tap for Thursday, when the Angels travel "across town" to face the Dodgers in an interleague battle.
Jun 25 - 12:23 AM

J.C. Ramirez yielded five runs on five hits over three-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Control proved to be Ramirez's bugaboo in this one, as he walked four and threw just 52 of his 89 pitches for strikes. As for the run-scoring damage on his watch, Ramirez allowed a bases-clearing RBI double to Mike Moustakas in the third inning, then put the first two runners on in the fourth before being relieved of duty. Both of those runners would come home to score courtesy of the bullpen. Ramirez will carry an unimpressive 4.59 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a road start against the Red Sox next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 18 - 7:14 PM

J.C. Ramirez allowed two earned runs, five hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Ramirez threw 68 of his 111 pitches for strikes in the quality start. His biggest mistake was a solo home run to Chase Headley in the seventh inning, one of the final nails in the coffin for the Halos starter. He entered 1-1 with a 10.61 ERA and four homers allowed over his 9 1/3 innings across two June starts, so the quality start was much needed.
Jun 14 - 3:59 AM

J.C. Ramirez won despite giving up four runs and 10 hits in five innings Thursday against the Tigers.

Ramirez has allowed 11 runs, four homers and 18 hits over 9 1/3 innings in his last two starts. He's made some real progress this year and it looks like he'll last as a starter, but he was never a good bet for mixed-league value.
Jun 8 - 5:00 PM

J.C. Ramirez allowed seven earned runs and eight hits, including three homers, in Friday's loss against the Twins.

The Nicaraguan right-hander was probably due for a poor outing, as he entered with back-to-back wins and quality starts in each of his past three assignments. After allowing just three homers across 33 2/3 innings over his first eight appearances (five starts), he has served up eight homers across 32 innings over the past five outings.
Jun 3 - 4:21 AM

J.C. Ramirez yielded only an unearned run over seven innings of work Saturday in a win over the Marlins.

Ramirez scattered seven hits and a walk in the latest installment of what's been a wildly successful first two months for the right-hander. The win improved him to 5-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP through 12 games, including nine starts. He's provided impressive length in those nine starts, four times going seven innings and registering five quality starts. He'll get back to facing American League opponents Thursday when the Angels host the Twins.
