Mariners placed RHP Erasmo Ramirez on the 10-day disabled list with a right teres major muscle strain.

It's the second DL stint of the season for Ramirez, who has surrendered 11 earned runs in two starts covering 9 2/3 innings. No timetable has been revealed by the Mariners, but this could be a lengthy absence.
May 1 - 5:43 PM

Erasmo Ramirez was hurt by the home run ball in a major way while giving up six runs over five innings against the Indians on Friday.

Ramirez gave up five home runs, all of them solo shots. That’s right, five solo homers. So things could have been worse. With the five homers allowed, he ties Jamie Moyer, Jason Vargas, and Mark Langston for the most allowed in one game with the Mariners. After getting a late start on the season due to a lat strain, Ramirez has been hammered for a 10.24 ERA with seven homers allowed over his first two starts. He’s not worthy of fantasy consideration until he shows better results.
Apr 27 - 10:37 PM

Erasmo Ramirez gave up five runs, including a pair of homers, over 4 2/3 innings in his season debut against the Rangers on Sunday.

Ramirez missed the first three weeks of the season due to a strained right lat muscle, and he showed some signs of it in this one. The good news for Ramirez is that the Mariners don't have a ton of better internal options at the moment, so he'll surely get a few more starts to try to figure it out. Another tough test awaits the 27-year-old Friday when the M's visit the Indians in Cleveland.
Apr 22 - 6:53 PM

Mariners activated RHP Erasmo Ramirez from the 10-day disabled list.

Ramirez will make his season debut Sunday versus the Rangers after successfully rehabbing a strained right lat muscle. The veteran hurler isn't a bad deep league streamer for Sunday.
Apr 22 - 12:05 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (lat) will make his 2018 debut on Sunday against the Rangers.

Ramirez has missed all of the 2018 season after straining his lat in February. He's made three rehab starts, and the Mariners feel comfortable putting him in the rotation against the Rangers on Sunday. The 27-year-old pitched reasonably well for Seattle last year, registering a 3.92 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 62 innings in his second stint with the Mariners.
Apr 18 - 7:04 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (lat) is scheduled to make his third rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Tacoma.

Ramirez has allowed two runs in seven innings with a 4/1 K/BB ratio over his first two minor league rehab starts. If all goes well Tuesday, it's possible he could be activated as soon as Sunday against the Rangers. Ramirez has been out all season with a strained right lat muscle.
Apr 17 - 12:12 PM

Erasmo Ramirez's (lat) next rehab start will come at Triple-A Tacoma.

Ramirez allowed one run over three innings for High-A Modesto on Saturday in his first rehab outing. It sounds like he'll make at least a couple start for Tacoma before the Mariners consider activating him.
Apr 9 - 5:12 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (lat) threw a simulated game on Tuesday and had no setbacks.

Ramirez now will look to build up his arm strength through minor league games. The plan is for him to throw 35 pitches in his first outing and increase the workload from there. Mariners manager Scott Servais told reporters that Ramirez will need to throw at least 75-80 pitches before he's ready to start a major league game. That likely means Ramirez will need at least three minor league rehab appearances.
Apr 4 - 11:06 PM

Erasmo Ramirez (lat) will participate in a simulated game next week at Triple-A Tacoma.

Ramirez was placed on the disabled list March 28, retroactive to March 26, with a strained right lat muscle. He could join the Mariners' rotation when the team first needs a fifth starter on April 11, though nothing is set in stone.
Apr 1 - 2:40 PM

Mariners placed RHP Erasmo Ramirez on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to March 26 with a strained right lat muscle.

Ramirez is not expected to be ready when the Mariners need a fifth starter for the first time on April 11. He should be able to return to the rotation by the end of the month of April, however.
Mar 28 - 9:30 PM

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.
Mar 23 - 2:10 PM

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.
Mar 17 - 12:34 PM

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.
