Braves designated RHP Josh Ravin for assignment.

The 30-year-old struggled in to appearances with the big league club, posting a 6.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He's likely to pass through waivers unclaimed and should continue to function as organizational bullpen depth.
Apr 21 - 3:27 PM

Braves activated RHP Josh Ravin from the 10-day disabled list.

Ravin missed a few weeks with a viral infection. He'll return to a middle relief role.
Apr 20 - 3:09 PM

Braves placed RHP Josh Ravin on 10-day disabled list with a viral infection.

Ravin had just been called up Saturday and pitched a scoreless inning in his only appearance. He could be dropped from the roster when healthy, depending on whether there's an opening in the Braves pen at the time.
Apr 2 - 3:44 PM

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Josh Ravin from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Ravin was outrighted to Triple-A after the Braves acquired Ryan Schmimpf in March, but he stayed in the organization and now will join Atlanta's bullpen.
Mar 31 - 4:11 PM

Braves sent RHP Josh Ravin outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

The moves clears a spot for Ryan Schimpf on the 40-man roster. Ravin, 30, was acquired from the Dodgers over the winter after putting up a 6.48 ERA over 14 appearances in the majors in 2017.
Mar 5 - 2:22 PM

Josh Ravin gave up three runs in the ninth to take a loss Wednesday against the Mets.

Ravin, who was picked up from the Dodgers in November, has long combined big strikeout stuff with thoroughly unexceptional results. Since he's finally out of options at age 30, he has a pretty good chance of winning a spot in the Braves bullpen. He's not likely to be much of an asset, though.
Feb 28 - 4:03 PM

Braves acquired RHP Josh Ravin from the Dodgers for cash.

Ravin was designated for assignment earlier Monday but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. He has posted a 5.05 ERA but has struck out 44 over 35 2/3 innings in the majors.

Dodgers activated RHP Josh Ravin from the 60-day disabled list.

His status on the 40-man roster has been restored. Ravin missed the last couple weeks of the season with hip and groin injuries but will be fine for spring training.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Josh Ravin on the 60-day disabled list with hip and groin injuries.

That will end the right-hander's season officially and also clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Brandon McCarthy. Ravin should be healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training.

Dodgers recalled RHP Josh Ravin from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Ravin will join the Los Angeles bullpen ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Pirates. He has a 3.38 ERA in 5 1/3 innings of relief this season with the Dodgers.
Tue, Aug 22, 2017 06:49:00 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Josh Ravin to Triple-A Oklahoma.

Ravin is being sent down to make room for Yu Darvish. In 5 1/3 frames with the major league team, the 29-year-old right-hander had allowed two runs on two hits. He will return to a 4.35 ERA and 49/13 K/BB ratio (31 innings) at Triple-A.
Wed, Aug 2, 2017 04:16:00 PM

Josh Ravin worked three scoreless and hitless innings in Tuesday's game against the Twins, finishing things out for the save.

It's a rarity to see a three-inning save these days, but he certainly deserved it in the 6-2 win. He threw 22 of his 33 pitches for strikes, allowing just one walk. He is still likely to work in middle relief and low-leverage situations, but with Kenley Jansen needing a rest and the bullpen a bit tired, manager Dave Roberts trusted Ravin to finish out the win.

Dodgers recalled RHP Josh Ravin from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Ravin has spent nearly all of the season at Oklahoma City, posting a 4.35 ERA and 49/13 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. He'll work in middle relief.
