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.

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.
Jun 16 - 11:49 PM

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."
May 29 - 9:12 AM

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.
