The Red Sox have optioned the right-hander reliever back to Triple-A Pawtucket, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Ramirez has bounced around the last couple of weeks as the Red Sox continue to struggle with injuries to their relief pitchers. Ramirez was recalled by the Red Sox on Wednesday when Koji Uehara was placed on the disabled list, but now heads back to Triple-A with the activation of reliever Junichi Tazawa. Ramirez has struggled in limited work with the big-league club this season.
Ramirez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal report Ramirez has been a terrific reliever for Pawtucket this season, posting a 2.36 ERA through 18 appearances while converting on all three of his save attempts. However, he gave up eight earned runs in 11 innings pitched in a previous stint with the Red Sox this season, so his effectiveness at the big league level is still up in the air. The 26-year-old will take Koji Uehara's place in the bullpen while he recovers from a pectoral strain that landed him on the 15-day DL on Wednesday.
