J.C. Ramirez (elbow) has a follow-up exam scheduled for Thursday.

Ramirez received platelet-rich plasma treatment last week after landing on the disabled list with a right elbow strain and the hope is doctors will find significant healing. There is no timetable for his return to the Angels' rotation at this point. He could very well be done for the year even if his rehab goes smoothly.
Aug 29 - 6:28 PM

Angels placed RHP J.C. Ramirez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 20, with a right elbow strain.

The Halos initially referred to Ramirez's injury as right forearm irritation, but after an MRI on Monday they're now saying it's his elbow. It's unclear at this point how long Ramirez will be sidelined. The Angels could give Troy Scribner another shot in the rotation or might potentially bring Jesse Chavez back in from the bullpen.
Aug 21 - 7:15 PM

J.C. Ramirez (forearm) is not expected to make his next scheduled start.

Ramirez will undergo an MRI on Monday but is unlikely to start this week even if it comes back clean. He's probably headed to the disabled list after hurting his forearm Saturday. It's unclear who might take his spot in the rotation.
Aug 20 - 12:07 PM

J.C. Ramirez left Saturday's start against the Orioles with right forearm irritation.

Ramirez injured himself while covering first base in the sixth inning. He scattered five hits and one run over 5 1/3 innings before exiting. Ramirez is scheduled for an MRI on Monday. A DL stint could be forthcoming.
Aug 19 - 10:50 PM

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.
