Erasmo Ramirez (lat) threw his first bullpen session of the year on Friday, but won't be ready to pitch on April 11 against Kansas City.
If you think April 11 sounds like a specific date, it's because it's the first day that the Mariners will need a fifth starter because of their off days to begin the season. With Ramirez not able to go, the job will go to either Ariel Miranda or Rob Whalen. Expect the right-hander to be able to join the Seattle starting group around the end of April, at this point.

Erasmo Ramirez (lat) will throw a bullpen on Saturday.

It will be Ramirez's first time on the mound since he was shut down the lat strain in February. The Mariners won't need a fifth starter until April 11, so there's a chance he could join the rotation without "missing" any starts for Seattle. He may need a couple of rehab starts before he's able to pitch, however, so there's just as good of chance he doesn't return to Seattle until late April.
Mar 21 - 8:26 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (shoulder) is not expected to be ready in time for the start of the regular season.

He isn't scheduled to throw a bullpen session until the final week of spring training, so there's a very low likelihood that he would be stretched out enough by the time the Mariners need a fifth starter on April 11. In that event, Ariel Miranda could be used to fill-in the first time through the rotation.

Erasmo Ramirez (shoulder) played catch Saturday.

It was his first throwing since being shut down three weeks ago due to a lat strain. Despite the long layoff and the fact that he's early in the recovery process, Mariners manager Scott Servais thinks Ramirez could still be ready to start for the club by the time the team needs a fifth starter in mid-April. If he can't go, the club may turn to Andrew Moore or another internal option at that time.
Mar 10 - 10:15 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (shoulder) will meet with a doctor Friday and could be cleared to play catch Saturday.

Ramirez has been dealing with a lat strain since the beginning of camp. It's possible he'll be ready to serve as the team's fifth starter when they first need one in mid-April, but he'll have to progress without setbacks.
Mar 9 - 12:33 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (lat) isn't expected to begin a throwing program until later this week.

And so, Mariners manager Scott Servais concedes that Ramirez is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day as he works his way back from a lat strain. That's not the end of the world, as the Mariners might not need a fifth starter for the first couple of weeks, but Felix Hernandez is also behind schedule after being hit in the arm by a comebacker. Ariel Miranda and Andrew Moore are the alternatives for the fifth spot in the rotation.
Mar 6 - 3:55 PM

Erasmo Ramirez will be shut down for the next two weeks after suffering a minor right lat strain.

Ramirez had been slated to throw a bullpen session Saturday, but he alerted the medical staff to some discomfort and the Mariners have decided to shut him down for a bit. It's considered precautionary, although lat injuries can sometimes linger.
Feb 18 - 12:16 PM

Mariners and RHP Erasmo Ramirez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.2 million contract.

Ramirez was eligible for arbitration for the second time. The 27-year-old hurler registered a 4.39 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 109/31 K/BB ratio across 131 1/3 innings with the Rays and Mariners in 2017.
Jan 12 - 2:59 PM

Erasmo Ramirez didn't have his best stuff on Wednesday, giving up five runs in five innings in a no-decision against the Athletics.

Ramirez was coming off one of the best starts in his career against Cleveland (8 IP, 1 R, 10 SO), but he didn't come close to matching that on Wednesday. Acquired for Steve Cishek in July, Ramirez pitched admirably for Seattle, and showed that can in fact be a starter at this level. Ideally, however, he's pitching in the bullpen, and assuming Seattle's staff is healthy next year, that's likely to be his role in 2018.

Erasmo Ramirez fanned 10 while allowing one run in eight innings Friday against the Indians.

It's great to see Ramirez back succeeding in the rotation after his undeserved demotion by the Rays at the beginning of 2016. He has a 3.79 ERA and a 52/13 K/BB ratio over 57 innings in 10 starts since the Mariners acquired him in July.

Erasmo Ramirez was hit hard in Saturday's loss to the Astros, allowing six runs on eight hits over four-plus innings of work.

The right-hander struck out five and walked three on the afternoon. Ramirez had been outstanding over his last six starts heading into Saturday's disaster. The Astros broke the game open against him with a four-run rally in the second inning, then tacked on a pair to chase him in the fifth. He'll carry a 4.56 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into Friday's start against the Indians.

Erasmo Ramirez delivered another strong start in a no-decision against the Angels on Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits over his 6 2/3 innings.

Ramirez racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. He gave up a solo homer to Mike Trout in the first inning and another to Luis Valbuena in the seventh, but was brilliant in-between. It was the sixth straight strong start for Ramirez who boasts a 4.25 ERA and 1.14 WHIP on the season. He'll take on the Astros in Houston his next time out on Friday.

Erasmo Ramirez pitched six innings of two-run ball Monday in a no-decision against the Astros.

Both the Mariners and Rays have to be thrilled with what they've gotten after swapping Ramirez and Steve Cishek prior to the deadline. Cishek has been terrific in his setup role in Tampa Bay, and Ramirez has given the Mariners five straight quality starts after stumbling in his first two outings. He has a 3.05 ERA overall in seven starts.

Erasmo Ramirez struck out a season-high seven batters while allowing two runs over six frames but took a loss Tuesday in Baltimore.

Ramirez pitched very well, but he served up a couple solo homers and that was enough for an "L" with Dylan Bundy throwing up a dominant effort. It’s the first two home runs allowed in four outings for Ramirez, who has now posted four straight quality starts but has just one win to show for it. He gets the Astros the next time out.

Erasmo Ramirez allowed three runs in six innings in a quality start versus the Braves on Wednesday.

He didn't stick around long enough to get the win as the Mariners pulled it out in the late innings. Ramirez struck out six batters against three walks and six base hits. He kept the ball in the yard and his team in the game. He helped himself by going 2-for-3 with an RBI at the plate in the interleague matchup. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 4.52 ERA with 73 strikeouts in 95 2/3 innings spread over 13 starts and 18 relief appearances with the Rays and Mariners this year.
