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. Sep 27 - 6:39 PM

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.
Sep 23 - 1:31 AM

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.
Sep 16 - 4:28 PM

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.
Sep 10 - 7:43 PM

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.
Sep 4 - 9:42 PM

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.
Aug 29 - 10:23 PM

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.
Aug 24 - 2:06 AM

Erasmo Ramirez beat the Rays by allowing one run in six innings on Friday.

He surrendered just two hits and two walks while striking out four in the quality start. The only run came on a Lucas Duda sacrifice fly in his final inning of work. Ramirez started his career with the Mariners then spent the last 2.5 years with the Rays before being dealt back to the Mariners for reliever Steve Cishek at the deadline. Ramirez is now 5-4 with a 4.52 ERA in 30 games, including 12 starts.
Aug 18 - 10:43 PM

Erasmo Ramirez allowed one unearned run, three hits and one walk with one strikeout over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Angels.

Ramirez tossed 55 of his 82 pitches for strikes in his most impressive outing to date since returning in a trade from the Rays. Still, he is 0-1 with a 4.40 ERA in three starts since being re-acquired from the Mariners and that type of production is good only for those desperate for pitching help in the deepest of AL fantasy play.
Aug 13 - 3:27 AM

Erasmo Ramirez struggled in a losing effort against the Royals on Sunday, surrendering five runs on eight hits over his five frames.

Ramirez struck out two and didn't walk a batter. As has typically been his issue in the past, the long ball did him in on Sunday, with Whit Merrifield, Eric Hosmer and Melky Cabrera each taking him deep. He'll bring a 5.10 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Angels.
Aug 6 - 9:02 PM

Erasmo Ramirez was charged with three runs -- two earned -- over 3 2/3 innings but settled for a no-decision in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Rangers.

Making his first appearance since returning to the organization he came up with, Ramirez started out great with three scoreless innings. He might have gotten gassed in the fourth, though, as he served up a couple homers and was then pulled. It was the first time in two weeks that he'd gone more than an inning. Ramirez should fare better as he gets more stretched out. He's slated to face the Royals in Kansas City on Sunday.
Aug 2 - 12:42 AM

Mariners acquired RHP Erasmo Ramirez from the Rays in exchange for RHP Steve Cishek and cash considerations.

Ramirez, of course, came up with the Mariners and made his debut with them. He's posted a 4.80 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 55/16 K/BB ratio over 69 1/3 frames this season and will give the M's the versatility to pitch in relief or in the rotation. Ramirez is under team control through 2019.
Jul 28 - 12:13 PM

Erasmo Ramirez is being moved back to the Rays' bullpen.

Blake Snell is rejoining the rotation this week. Ramirez posted a 6.05 ERA over eight starts to earn the demotion.
Jun 25 - 10:13 AM

Erasmo Ramirez pitched 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball and struck out six Wednesday against the Reds.

Ramirez could have been facing a demotion to the bullpen if he struggled in this one, but he picked up his first win since May 24. He still hasn't thrown more than six innings in any of his eight starts this year, and there probably will come a time in which the Rays will try someone else.
Jun 21 - 4:04 PM

Erasmo Ramirez was lit up for 10 runs -- eight earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Tigers.

Kevin Cash has the slowest hook in the business, which takes a toll on the ERAs of his starters. Most managers wouldn't have let Ramirez come back out after he gave up five runs in the fourth inning tonight, but Cash let him give up four more runs, ruining any chances the Rays might have had of coming back. Ramirez's ERA jumped from 4.20 to 5.17.
