Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Friday. Ramirez holds a 5.74 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 26.2 innings this season, and Detroit has now opted to remove him from the 40-man roster after he allowed nine runs across his last 10 innings. The veteran right-hander could draw interest on the waiver wire from teams in need of relief help, but it would not be at all surprising if he goes unclaimed following his recent struggles.
Ramirez (1-1) was tagged with the loss Sunday against Cleveland after allowing two runs on three hits while fanning one across 1.1 innings. Ramirez didn't have his best stuff Sunday and while he was extremely effective -- needing just 23 pitches to record four outs -- he still suffered his first loss of the campaign. He owns a 4.95 ERA on the campaign.
Ramirez (1-0) pitched two perfect innings with one strikeout, earning the win Sunday versus Baltimore. The 31-year-old had an uneven July, but he's now strung together 7.1 scoreless innings while allowing just two hits and a walk in that span. Ramirez has filled a bulk-relief role since he returned from a pectoral strain. He has a 4.32 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB in 16.2 innings across 10 appearances.
Ramirez (pectoral) allowed a run on two hits across 2.2 innings in Friday's 8-2 loss to the White Sox. Friday was Ramirez's season debut. He allowed three runs on two hits and two walks with eight strikeouts across six innings in four rehab appearances with Triple-A Toledo. The right-hander was solid in limited time with the Mets last year, posting a 0.63 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB across 14.1 innings. He is expected to fill a bulk relief role going forward.
Ramirez (pectoral) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Friday's game against the White Sox. Ramirez was called up by Detroit on May 7 but he landed on the injured list just a day later without pitching in a big-league game. He began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on June 18 and wound up making four appearances, allowing three runs on four hits across eight innings. He'll now rejoin the Tigers' bullpen, where he figures to pitch primarily in long relief.
