Ramirez agreed to a minor-league contract with the Reds which includes an invitation to spring training. Ramirez appeared in 20 games between the Mariners and the Diamondbacks this season, recording a 5.32 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 23.2 innings. The 27-year-old did pitch well in Triple-A last season (2.72 ERA in 43 innings) so he could earn a spot with the Reds during spring training, but he's unlikely to pitch in enough high-leverage innings to become fantasy relevant.
The Mariners added four players to the active roster on Tuesday, the team announced. Pitcher J.C. Ramirez , catcher Steven Baron , outfielder James Jones and first baseman Jesus Montero will all be part of Seattle's roster.
The Diamondbacks have announced that they have traded reliever J.C. Ramirez to the Mariners for cash or future considerations. Ramirez, who has been pitching at Triple-A Reno, tossed 15 1/3 innings for Arizona earlier in the year and posted a 4.11 ERA.
The Diamondbacks recalled relief pitcher Allen Webster and designated pitcher J.C. Ramirez for assignment in corresponding moves on Saturday, the team announced. Ramirez has a 4.11 ERA with 11 strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings of work this season. Webster (1-2) allowed 23 runs in 23 innings of work at Triple-A Reno this year.
Diamondbacks reliever J.C. Ramirez dropped to 1-1 on the season, taking a loss against St. Louis on Monday. The loss was the first for Ramirez since July 13, 2013. Ramirez entered the game, which was tied at 2-2, in the bottom of the ninth inning, with the winning run on second base. He struck out the side on 14 pitches to send the game to extra innings. Ramirez started the tenth, and the first batter he faced, Jhonny Peralta, hit a 1-2 pitch to left field for a walk-off home run.
