Ramirez (elbow) is scheduled to face live hitters in early May, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Ramirez has been ramping up his throwing program throughout the spring as he continues his recovery from last April's Tommy John surgery. The 30-year-old will stretch out by throwing at least 60 pitches so that the Angels can decide whether to utilize him as a starter or reliever when he's ready to return.
