Given a save chance with Jim Johnson needing the day off, Jose Ramirez gave up two runs in the ninth to blow a save Wednesday against the Pirates.
Both Johnson and Arodys Vizcaino had worked the last two days and four of the previous five days, so Ramirez got the call. An overturned call gave the Pirates an infield single to open the inning, and they got another single, a walk and a two-run single afterwards to tie the game. Ramirez probably won't get any additional save chances in the near future. May 25 - 12:25 AM

Jose Ramirez gave up four runs -- three earned -- in his inning against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Ramirez has surrendered three homers in 6 2/3 innings this spring, potentially putting his roster spot in jeopardy. Fortunately, he's out of options, so it's still likely that he'll keep his place in Atlanta's pen. He had a 2.05 ERA in 30 2/3 innings after the All-Star break last year.

Jose Ramirez has been suspended for three games by Major League Baseball for throwing a pitch at the Marlins' Jose Fernandez on Wednesday.
