Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Padres on Friday. Ramirez owns a 5.75 ERA in 20.1 major-league innings this season, the last of which came back in early July. His 5.23 ERA over 41.1 frames at the Triple-A level isn't much better. He'll exit the 40-man roster as the Padres add Vince Velasquez ahead of his scheduled start against the Cardinals.
The Padres activated Ramirez (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A El Paso. The transaction clears a spot on the active roster for infielder Adam Frazier, whom the team officially acquired Monday in a trade with the Pirates. Ramirez was placed on the IL on July 8 with left rotator cuff inflammation, but he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment at El Paso last week and appears to be fully healthy.
Ramirez (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A El Paso on Friday. Ramirez has been on the 10-day injured list with left rotator cuff inflammation since July 8, but he could be nearing his return to the Padres. Since the southpaw serves as a reliever and has only been sidelined two weeks, he likely won't require a lengthy rehab stint before he's activated.
Ramirez was placed on the 10-day injured list with left rotator cuff inflammation Thursday. Ramirez was roughed up as a reliever in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, as he gave up five runs (four earned) on six hits and no walks while striking out one in two innings. His shoulder issue may have contributed to his struggles, and he'll now be sidelined through the All-Star break. It's not yet clear whether the southpaw will need to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the shelf, but he'll be eligible to return shortly after the break.
Ramirez (1-1) tossed 1.2 scoreless innings Friday against the Diamondbacks. He walked one and struck out one as he picked up his first win of the year. Ramirez was called upon with one out and two runners in scoring position in the third after Chris Paddack got tagged for five runs in Friday's start. He got out of the jam and then went on to toss a 1-2-3 fourth inning before turning the ball over to Miguel Diaz. Friday was Ramirez's first outing since May 25 after he was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday. He owns a 4.38 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB over 12.1 innings and should continue to work as a middle innings reliever.
