Ramirez was recalled by the Angels on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. A waiver acquisition in August, Ramirez turned in four scoreless appearances during his brief time with Triple-A Salt Lake and now finds himself among the Angels' first wave of September callups. He figures to work exclusively in low-leverage spots down the stretch.
Ramirez was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday. Before being acquired by the Angels, Ramirez had thrown 4.2 innings over two games for the Red Sox, during which he allowed two earned runs off three hits. However, two of said hits were home runs. Ramirez will report to Triple-A Salt Lake, where he'll likely be used out of the bullpen.
Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Thursday, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports. The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Roenis Elias, who was reinstated from the 60-day DL and sent to Triple-A in a corresponding move. The 27-year-old compiled a 4.99 ERA and 32:16 K:BB through 30.2 innings across three seasons with the Red Sox. He's got one option year remaining, and he's put up solid minor-league numbers, so he could draw some interest on waivers.
Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday. Ramirez was recalled on May 19 but will be sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket after just two days with the Red Sox. He did make one relief appearance during his stay, allowing two runs over three innings Saturday. In a corresponding move, Brandon Workman was recalled from Triple-A.
Ramirez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports. He takes the spot of Robbie Ross, who was optioned down after allowing five earned runs combined over his past three appearances. It marks the second appearance with the Red Sox this season for Ramirez, as he threw 1.2 scoreless innings in a lone relief appearance earlier this season. The right-hander has compiled a 2.53 ERA over nine relief appearances in Triple-A this year, but will need to translate that performance to the majors if he wants to stay in the big leagues on a permanent basis.
