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.
Jul 18 - 3:53 PM

Erasmo Ramirez fired six innings of one-run ball in Friday's 3-1 win over the Astros.

The only damage against Ramirez was a solo homer from Colby Rasmus in the second inning. He held the Astros to just four hits and a walk while striking out five batters. Ramirez has been on quite the roll, allowing two earned runs or fewer in eight straight starts. He'll go into the second half with a 3.65 ERA.
Jul 10 - 9:46 PM

Erasmo Ramirez stayed white-hot on the mound, earning the win on Sunday after limiting the Yankees to one run in six innings en route to a 6-1 victory.

Ramirez scattered three hits and three walks while striking out three. He had blanked the Yankees until Alex Rodriguez hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. 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.
Jul 5 - 4:19 PM

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.
