He served up five hits, including Jhonny Peralta's first home run of the year -- a laser-beam shot to left field. Ramirez hadn't pitched since Sunday because of a bruised right quad. He now has a 6.95 ERA for the year. Jun 9 - 8:58 AM

J.C. Ramirez was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Nationals due to a bruised right quad.

He sustained the injury when he was hit by a comebacker. He probably wasn't long for the game anyways though, as he had allowed a pair of runs on four hits in just 2/3 of an inning. He should be back to work in a day or two.

J.C. Ramirez left Sunday's game against the Nationals after taking a comebacker off his foot.

Ramirez probably wouldn't have been in the game much longer, anyway, as he'd already allowed two runs on four hits over two-thirds of an inning. The Reds should have more on his status later Sunday.
Jun 5 - 3:30 PM

J.C. Ramirez notched his first career save by retiring the only batter he faced in Monday's win over the Rockies.

Don't read too much into this. Ramirez had to relieve closer Tony Cingrani, who entered the ninth with a six-run lead looking to get some work in but departed having allowed three runs. Ross Ohlendorf, who looks to be second in line for saves in Cincy, struck out two in a perfect eighth inning. Anything can happen in the Reds' mess of a bullpen, but we wouldn't pick up Ramirez, whose ERA on the year sits at 5.21.
