Jose Ramirez (shoulder) suffered a setback while throwing a live batting practice session.

Ramirez is having his right shoulder examined back in Atlanta. He's been out of action since mid-April and obviously when he might be back is up in the air at the moment.
Jun 4 - 7:50 PM

Braves placed RHP Jose Ramirez on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Ramirez has posted a hideous 17.05 ERA in seven appearances this season and acknowledged after Tuesday night's loss to the Phillies that he's been bothered by shoulder discomfort since spring training. It is unclear at this point how long the 28-year-old setup man might be sidelined.

Jose Ramirez is experiencing tightness in his right shoulder.

Ramirez allowed four runs in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's loss to the Phillies and revealed after the game that he's been battling shoulder tightness since spring training. He added that it has worsened in recent days. A disabled list stint may be coming for the 28-year-old setup man, who holds a brutal 17.05 ERA in seven appearances this season out of the Braves' bullpen.
Apr 18 - 12:08 AM

Jose Ramirez gave up four runs in the 10th inning Tuesday against the Phillies to take his second straight loss.

Ramirez gave up five runs in the Braves' disastrous loss to the Cubs on Saturday, so he has a 17.05 ERA through 6 1/3 innings. It's quite the stunning result for the Braves; Ramirez might not be particularly well known, but he actually led the NL with 27 holds while amassing a 3.19 ERA last year. He's out of options, so the Braves can't send him down to get him sorted out. Maybe they'll stash him on the DL.
Apr 17 - 11:26 PM

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.

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.

He threw a pitch behind Fernandez's head after Fernandez had hit Nick Markakis with the pitch earlier in the game. Ramirez is appealing the ruling.

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Ramirez was pushed off the Braves' 40-man roster back in April after two disastrous outings, but he has pitched very well at Triple-A. The right-hander will presumably step into a middle relief role in Atlanta.

Braves sent RHP Jose Ramirez outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Ramirez was pushed off the Braves' 40-man roster earlier this week after allowing six earned runs in two innings of relief to open the 2016 regular season. He could get another shot in Atlanta at some point.

Ramirez allowed six earned runs in two innings of relief with Atlanta, and he got hit especially hard Sunday against the Cardinals. Expect a constant carousel throughout the summer in the Braves' bullpen.
