J.C. Ramirez (elbow) will resume a throwing program next week.
Ramirez underwent stem cell therapy in September to combat a damaged ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Three ultrasounds since then have showed continued healing to the point that the Angels are hopeful he can avoid surgery. "You’re never out of the woods until they get on a mound and start throwing to hitters," general manager Billy Eppler said. "That’s usually where you find yourself at a point of kind of exhaling."

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Monday that J.C. Ramirez has shown continued healing in his right elbow.

Ramirez underwent stem cell therapy in September for a damaged ulnar collateral ligament, but a follow-up ultrasound on Monday showed progress. The Angels are encouraged enough that they think he can avoid surgery. The plan calls for him to be reevaluated in four weeks before potentially coming up with a throwing program. Ramirez had a 4.15 ERA and 105/49 K/BB ratio over 147 1/3 innings this season prior to hurting his elbow.
Oct 31 - 10:57 AM

Angels transferred RHP J.C. Ramirez to the 60-day disabled list.

That means that Ramirez will miss the remainder of the season with his strained right elbow. It also frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Halos to add another player as a September call-up.
Sep 1 - 7:11 PM

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.
