The Angels selected Ramos' contract Thursday. Ramos has spent the entire season at Triple-A Salt Lake, where he has posted a 5.26 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 53 innings. After appearing out of the Rockies' bullpen to throw 2.2 innings in 2020, Ramos now appears to be set to pitch in the same role for the Angels to close the 2021 campaign.
Ramos has been throwing at the Angels' alternate training site and would be "close to ready" if summoned to the big club, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Ramos inked a big-league deal with the Angels in late March, so he didn't have time to fully ramp up during spring training. However, the right-hander has been working his arm into shape at the alternate site and now appears to be at least close to capable of throwing in big-league games. Ramos has pitched a mere 2.2 big-league innings since 2018, so it's unclear where he ranks on the organization's reliever depth chart.
Ramos signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Ramos missed the entire 2019 season due to a torn labrum and spent most of the 2020 campaign at the Rockies' alternate training site. The right-hander made just three relief appearances for Colorado last year and allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out one over 2.2 innings. Ramos will begin the 2021 season at the Angels' alternate training site.
Ramos was recalled by the Rockies on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Ramos spent time with the Dodgers and Cubs at their alternate training sites earlier this season prior to signing a minor-league deal with the Rockies. He'll now be in line to make his first major-league appearance since May of 2018 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum. The former All-Star has been declining for years and likely won't play a prominent role in the Rockies' bullpen over the final few games of the 2020 season.
Ramos signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Friday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. Ramos will land with the Rockies just one day after being released by the Cubs. He should serve as organizational depth to begin his time with the team.
