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.

Erasmo Ramirez allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings and did not factor into the decision against the Athletics in the first game of Saturday's double-header.

He gave up 10 base hits and lucky for him they all stayed in the yard. He struck out six batters and walked one in the ballgame. All his troubles occurred in the third inning as the Athletics strung together a series of hits to plate three runs. Ramirez's record holds at 3-1 as his ERA climbs to 4.20 in 49 1/3 innings. He has a nice 39/9 K/BB in 18 games, including six starts.
Jun 10 - 8:31 PM

Erasmo Ramirez surrendered four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Ramirez struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He ran into trouble almost immediately in the form a two-run homer by Nelson Cruz in the first inning. Mike Zunino would hit a two-run single off Ramirez in the fourth to polish off the scoring action on his line. He will bring a 4.09 ERA and 1.07 WHIP into a home start against the A's in his next scheduled outing.
Jun 4 - 7:39 PM

Starting against the Rangers after pitching in relief Sunday, Erasmo Ramirez gave up four runs in 2 1/3 innings on Monday.

Ramirez shouldn't have been asked to make this start after saving Sunday's game against the Tigers. He ended up allowing three runs in the first, and his ERA increased from 2.92 to 3.66. Ramirez should remain in the rotation for now and pitch this weekend.
May 30 - 12:38 AM

Erasmo Ramirez is still expected to start Monday against the Rangers.

Jose De Leon was scratched from his start in Triple-A on Monday and is reportedly on his way to the majors, but it sounds like he could just give the Rays some insurance out of the bullpen. Ramirez threw 12 pitches in relief and notched the save on Sunday against the Twins.
May 29 - 1:48 PM

Erasmo Ramirez will start against the Rangers on Monday despite saving Sunday's game against the Twins.

Well, that doesn't happen very often. The Rays were forced to use Ramirez in the 15th inning on Sunday, but he only threw 12 pitches and is confident he'll be ready to bounce back. "My arm feels good," said Ramirez. "I'm glad the inning was quick. I executed every pitch, and that gave me the chance to not just feel it that much. I told (manager Kevin) Cash my arm feels good just in case you want to continue with the plans. I want to start for sure."

Erasmo Ramirez earned a win by tossing six innings while allowing two runs against the Angels on Wednesday.

He started off in shaky fashion by allowing a two-run shot to Albert Pujols in the first inning. That was the only real difficulty he faced all evening. He surrendered just four base hits and one walk while striking out two batters. He owns a 3-0 record with a 3.00 ERA and 0.89 WHIP. This was his second start since replacing Blake Snell in the rotation. He made 11 appearances in relief previously.
May 24 - 10:48 PM

Making his first start since replacing Blake Snell in the Rays’ rotation, Erasmo Ramirez yielded two runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Yankees on Friday.

He didn’t factor into the decision. Ramirez gave up six hits while walking one and striking out five. He threw 65 pitches before being pulled and should be ready for a bigger workload next time out. The Rays have some options, but Ramirez will carry some appeal in deeper fantasy formats as long as he holds a rotation spot.
May 19 - 11:12 PM

Erasmo Ramirez will start for the Rays on Friday versus the Yankees.

Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Monday that Ramirez would be joining the rotation in place of the recently-demoted Blake Snell. Ramirez has a cool 2.92 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 18/4 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings (one start, 11 relief appearances) this season for Tampa Bay and carries some streaming appeal in deeper fantasy formats.
May 16 - 4:07 PM

Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Monday that Erasmo Ramirez will move into the rotation.

It's been the assumption since Blake Snell was demoted to Triple-A Durham. The club hasn't decided yet which day Ramirez will start, as an off day Thursday allows them to skip the fifth spot if they want. It's possible Ramirez will remain in the bullpen this week. The 27-year-old will be limited from a pitch count perspective for a while, but Ramirez has some deep league appeal now. He's posted a 2.92 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 18/4 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings this season across 11 relief appearances and one start.
May 15 - 4:10 PM

Rays activated RHP Erasmo Ramirez from the paternity leave list.

The right-hander was away for a couple of days to witness the birth of his child. He has been a shut-down option out of the Rays' bullpen this season, compiling a 2.75 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 13/2 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings.
May 6 - 12:27 PM

Rays placed RHP Erasmo Ramirez on the paternity leave list.

Ramirez can miss up to three days. The 27-year-old right-hander has posted a cool 2.75 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 13/2 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings (one start, seven relief appearances) this season for Tampa Bay.
May 4 - 3:21 PM

Erasmo Ramirez was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday night against the Orioles.

There are uncertain weather conditions in Baltimore and the Rays don't want to mess with Ramirez on a night that include multiple delays. Ramirez held the Tigers to one run over five innings in his sharp 2017 debut last Thursday. Austin Pruitt will start against the O's instead on Tuesday, and Ramirez could be available out of the bullpen.
Apr 25 - 7:06 PM

Making his first start of the season, Erasmo Ramirez limited the Tigers to one run over five innings on Thursday.

He struck out five and walked none. The only run came on Ian Kinsler's homer leading off the game. Ramirez has always been worthy of a spot in Tampa Bay's rotation, but it was argued for much of last year that he was more valuable as a reliever. He's likely to start at least once more before Jake Odorizzi comes off the DL.
