Erasmo Ramirez turned in a tough outing in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays, allowing four runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Ramirez struck out three and walked one on the evening. Three of the four runs on his line scored in the sixth inning. Despite what was certainly a mediocre final start, the 25-year-old right-hander can look back on a 2015 season in which he pitched to a respectable 3.75 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 126/40 K/BB ratio across 163 1/3 innings (33 appearances, 26 starts).
Oct 2 - 10:30 PM

Erasmo Ramirez pitched seven innings of two-run ball in defeating the Red Sox on Thursday.

Ramirez struck out six and walked none in his latest rock-solid start. His season ERA of 3.65 still isn't particularly exceptional, but he gave up 15 runs over 5 1/3 innings in his first two appearances of the year. Since then, his ERA stands at 2.89 in 152 2/3 innings.
Sep 24 - 11:22 PM

Erasmo Ramirez was the tough luck loser in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Orioles, allowing two runs on nine hits over seven innings.

Ramirez struck out four without walking a batter. While the Orioles did batter him up for nine hits over his seven innings of work, he was able to mostly limit the damage. Adam Jones burned him for both runs, notching an RBI ground out in the opening inning and an RBI single in the sixth. Ramirez will carry a 3.70 ERA and 1.13 WHIP into his next start, a road showdown with the Red Sox.
Sep 19 - 9:07 PM

Erasmo Ramirez lost his no-hit bid in the eighth inning and settled for a no-decision, pitching 7 2/3 innings of shutout ball in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Carlos Beltran ended the attempt at a no-hitter, leading off the eighth inning with a single. Along with the one hit, Ramirez allowed two walks while striking out six. Though the right-hander has been less effective as of late, he's overall been an underrated starter, boasting a 3.75 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP and a 113/39 K/BB ratio over 144 innings. Ramirez will try again to earn his first win since August 17 when he faces the Orioles in a home start over the weekend.
Sep 14 - 10:21 PM

Erasmo Ramirez struck out nine, allowing four runs, over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Tigers.

Bouncing back from a couple subpar starts, Ramirez seemed to have his good stuff in the start until the sixth. He allowed three straight hits to start the sixth before being removed, three of those coming around to score at the hands of Rays relievers. Ramirez allowed six hits without walking a batter on the evening. He's 10-5 with a 3.96 ERA and 1.16 WHIP overall, and he'll next take on the Yankees on Monday.
Sep 9 - 1:14 AM

Erasmo Ramirez yielded four runs in four innings, taking a no-decision in Wednesday's 11-inning loss to the Orioles.

The O's jumped on him for four runs in the third inning, capped off by a two-run Chris Davis home run. Overall, Ramirez gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out three. He hasn't been able to make it through five innings in each of his last two outings, but he'll try to change that when he takes the mound in Detroit against the Tigers next week. Ramirez will bring with him a 3.84 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 98/37 K/BB ratio over 131 1/3 innings.
Sep 2 - 10:56 PM

Erasmo Ramirez couldn't make it through five innings in Friday's loss to the Royals, surrendering three runs (two earned) on six hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Ramirez struck out four, but he also walked three. Two of the three runs against him came home on a long home run by Kendrys Morales in the third inning. The 25-year-old right-hander might have struggled in this one, but he's pitched well since entering the rotation in mid-May. For the season, he holds a solid 3.68 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. He'll take to the road to face off with the Orioles next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 28 - 10:46 PM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said that there are no plans to shut down Erasmo Ramirez.

Ramirez has logged 123 innings this season after tossing 167 1/3 innings last year between the majors and the minors. He should be good to go down the stretch. The 25-year-old owns a 3.66 ERA on the year and has been a reliable option in fantasy leagues since moving to the rotation in mid-May.
Aug 25 - 11:36 AM

Erasmo Ramirez improved to 10-4, giving up two runs in 5 2/3 innings as the Rays defeated the Astros 9-2 on Monday.

Ramirez allowed an RBI infield single to Evan Gattis in the second inning and a solo homer to Gattis in the fourth. They were two of six hits he allowed along with two walks and two strikeouts. He's been an elite performer out of the rotation since his insertion in mid-May, carrying a 3.20 ERA in 19 starts. Ramirez will look to keep it going when he opposes the Athletics in Oakland this weekend.
Aug 17 - 11:48 PM

Erasmo Ramirez kept the Braves scoreless in seven innings of work, earning the win on Tuesday.

Ramirez allowed only five hits, four of which were singles, while walking none and striking out four. Though he had struggled in two of his previous three starts entering Tuesday, Ramirez now has a 2.57 ERA and a 69/23 K/BB ratio in 16 starts since joining the Rays' rotation in mid-May. The right-hander will look to keep it going in a road start next week versus the Astros.
Aug 11 - 9:18 PM

Erasmo Ramirez was charged with five earned runs in six innings Wednesday against the White Sox.

Ramirez gave up all five of those runs in a brutal first inning. He settled in from there and the Rays were able to tie the game in the top of the eighth, but the White Sox wound up marching back to win it in the bottom of the 10th. Ramirez, 25, will carry a strong 3.83 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into his next start at home against the Braves.
Aug 5 - 5:44 PM

Erasmo Ramirez gave up four runs (one earned) over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Red Sox.

Three of the runs scored in the first inning, but they were all unearned due to some shaky defense behind him. Ramirez was in line for the win before the Red Sox plate two runs in the top of the seventh. All told, Ramirez gave up five hits and two walks while striking out six batters. The 29-year-old now owns a 3.61 ERA and 78/28 K/BB ratio over 97 1/3 innings this season. He'll face the White Sox on the road next week.
Jul 31 - 11:02 PM

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.
