Marlins placed RHP A.J. Ramos on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 27, with right shoulder inflammation.

Ramos doesn't have any structural damage, but the Marlins understandably want to play things cautiously. He should have a shot to return when eligible.

The Marlins will place A.J. Ramos (shoulder) on the disabled list.

An MRI on Ramos' shoulder showed only inflammation, but the club wants to be careful. He should be back around the All-Star break. "It's a little sore. Nothing more than inflammation," Ramos said. "As a precaution, we want to make sure everything is alright."

A.J. Ramos is unavailable Tuesday due to shoulder soreness.

The right-hander underwent an MRI on his shoulder last week and it only showed inflammation, but he could still hit the disabled list. Ramos, 27, owns a strong 2.17 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings this year.

A.J. Ramos was credited with a win after striking out four in two scoreless innings of relief Thursday against the Braves.

Ramos has pitched 8 2/3 scoreless innings in his last six appearances, three of which have resulted in wins. Now that he's throwing better, he might be at the top of the Marlins' list for saves chances should Steve Cishek get traded.

Marlins rookie A.J. Ramos has a 4.50 ERA through 32 innings.

The 26-year-old posted a 2.87 ERA in April and a 4.50 ERA in May. His earned run average stood at a respectable 3.45 prior to Wednesday's implosion against the Phillies (five runs on five hits in one inning). Some see Ramos as having late-inning ability, so the rancid Marlins aren't likely to demote him anytime soon.

A.J. Ramos struck out four in two perfect innings of relief Wednesday versus the Nationals.

Ramos still has a ways to go to lock up a spot in the Miami pen, but it'd be no surprise to see him quickly emerge as the team's eighth-inning guy in front of Steve Cishek. He may well be the Marlins' long-term closer.

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP A.J. Ramos from Double-A Jacksonville.

The Marlins moved Juan Carlos Oviedo (elbow) to the 60-day disabled list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Ramos posted a 1.44 ERA, 21 saves and an 89/21 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings in Double-A this year and could get tested in the late innings down the stretch.

The Marlins are expected to purchase the contract of right-hander A.J. Ramos from Double-A Jacksonville on Tuesday.

Ramos owns a 2.26 ERA over his first four seasons in the pros, including a 1.44 ERA, 21 saves and an 89/21 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings of relief this season in Double-A. The Marlins will likely use the 25-year-old right-hander in lower leverage situations before challenging him in the late innings, but he's someone to keep an eye on.
