Erasmo Ramirez surrendered a grand slam to Chris Davis in Saturday's loss to the Orioles, eventually allowing five total runs over 7 1/3 innings.
Ramirez was consistently around the strike zone early in the contest. Unfortunately for the 25-year-old right-hander, one of those strikes went a long, long way in the third inning, when Chris Davis took him deep with the bases loaded. Ramirez allowed five of his seven total hits in that frame. Outside of the one killer blemish, he actually pitched very well. He's been on a roll over the last month-plus and one mistake doesn't change that. Ramirez will take a 3.74 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 73/26 K/BB ratio over 91 1/3 innings into his next start, a Fenway showdown with the Red Sox. Jul 25 - 8:37 PM

Erasmo Ramirez pitched well in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday, surrendering just one run on four hits over 4 2/3 innings of work.

Ramirez struck out four and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. In a curious move though, he was lifted with a man on second and two outs in the fifth inning after having thrown only 65 pitches on the afternoon. The right-hander has been one of the best pitchers in baseball for the past six weeks and will carry a 3.54 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 70/26 K/BB ratio into Friday's matchup against the Orioles.

Over his last seven starts, Ramirez has allowed five runs in 38 innings (1.18 ERA). Overall, he is 7-3 with a 3.80 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 61/25 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings. He'll look to keep it going at home against the Astros next.

Erasmo Ramirez suffered a tough-luck loss Tuesday, allowing one run over 5 2/3 innings against the Indians.

Ramirez allowed just two hits on the night, but one was a solo homer by Jason Kipnis. He also walked one while striking out seven. The loss, undeserved as it was, was just his third of the year and his first since May 24. The right-hander continues to pitch well in his new Tampa digs, now owning a 4.01 ERA and 1.14 WHIP on the year. He'll try to get back in the win column Sunday at the Yankees.

Erasmo Ramirez left Saturday's game against the Indians with a right groin strain.

Xavier Cedeno replaced him in the fourth inning. Ramirez lasted just 39 pitches, allowing two hits while mixing in three strikeouts.

He's likely headed for the disabled list.

With an ever-improving 4.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 48/21 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings, Ramirez will look to continue his hot streak when he faces the Indians in a road start this weekend.

He has pitched well over his last three starts and now has a 2.97 ERA since moving into the rotation in mid-May. Ramirez has a 4.96 ERA overall with a 1.22 WHIP and a 44/18 K/BB ratio over 52 2/3 innings. He'll get the Nationals at home in his next outing.
Jun 10 - 9:58 PM

Erasmo Ramirez pitched a serviceable game in Thursday's win over the Mariners, allowing one run on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Robinson Cano stung him for an RBI single in the fifth inning, but he managed to avoid further damage. In addition to the 5.10 ERA, Ramirez also holds a 1.24 WHIP and 41/18 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. He'll try to keep the ball rolling in the right direction when he faces the Angels next time he toes the rubber.

Erasmo Ramirez pitched superbly in a 3-0 win over the Orioles on Saturday, allowing just three hits and striking out seven across seven innings.

The Orioles had no answer here. In addition to the seven strikeouts, Ramirez walked just one.

He'll try to build off this outing when he takes to the road against the Mariners in his next start.

He'll face the Orioles at Camden Yards next weekend.
