  • Nationals' Harold Ramirez: Back on bench Sunday

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    The right-handed-hitting Ramirez drew the start at designated hitter in Saturday's 6-5 win while the Brewers brought lefty Dallas Keuchel to the hill, but Ramirez will hit the bench for Sunday's series finale. Ramirez, who owns a .576 OPS since being promoted from Triple-A Rochester on June 24, should continue to serve as a short-side platoon player for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Harold Ramirez: Contract selected by Washington

    The Nationals selected Ramirez's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Monday.

    Ramirez joined the Nationals on a minor-league deal June 15 and had to wait a little under two weeks before getting the call to the big club. Trey Lipscomb was optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a spot on the 26-man active roster for Ramirez, who will likely serve as a short-side platoon player during his time with Washington. Ramirez previously posted a .268/.284/.305 slash line in 169 plate appearances with the Rays before being cut earlier this season.

  • Nationals' Harold Ramirez: Joining big club in San Diego

    Ramirez joined the Nationals in San Diego and could be formally added to the active roster prior to Monday's series opener with the Padres, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Ramirez started the season with the Rays, slashing .268/.284/.305 before being released June 14. After signing with Washington, he appeared in seven games with Triple-A Rochester, going 9-for-24 with four RBI. The Nationals haven't yet confirmed that Ramirez has been called up to the big club, but more details on his status should arrive shortly before the 9:40 p.m. ET start time of Monday's game.

  • Nationals' Harold Ramirez: Inks minors deal with Nationals

    The Nationals signed Ramirez to a minor-league contract Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Ramirez was released by the Rays earlier this week after hitting just .268/.284/.305 in 48 games. The 29-year-old is a career .287/.325/.408 hitter and has slashed .322/.357/.445 against left-handed pitching. Ramirez will report to Triple-A Rochester for now but is a good bet to be added to the Nationals' roster sooner rather than later, especially with Joey Gallo (hamstring) expected to miss significant time.

  • Harold Ramirez: Released by Rays

    The Rays released Ramirez on Thursday.

    Ramirez cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and is now free to sign with another organization. He's slashed a disappointing .268/.284/.305 this season, but Ramirez carried a career .289/.329/.419 line into 2024, including a .322/.357/.445 performance against left-handed pitching. The 29-year-old may not have much trouble landing a major-league contract.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: DFA'd by Tampa Bay

    The Rays designated Ramirez for assignment on Friday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    The 29-year-old began the season as Tampa Bay's primary designated hitter, though he recently had been relegated to the small side of a platoon. Ramirez has never offered much power but hit .306 in 242 games over the previous two seasons, and through 169 plate appearances in 2024 he's batting .268 with just four extra-base hits and a 1.8 percent walk rate. He could garner some interest on the waiver wire.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Losing at-bats against righties

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    On the bench for the third time in four games -- all against right-handed starting pitchers -- Ramirez looks as though he's fallen into a short-side platoon role. He's been playing fairly regularly against both lefties and righties for most of the season, but Ramirez's overall opportunities will likely be more limited moving forward with the Rays recently welcoming back Josh Lowe and Jonathan Aranda from the injured list.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Sitting for series finale

    Ramirez isn't in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Ramirez went 0-for-7 with two strikeouts over the first two games of the series. He will begin Sunday's game in the dugout as the Yankees send right-hander Luis Gil to the hill. Randy Arozarena will serve as the designated hitter Sunday, while Jonny DeLuca and Jose Siri start in left and center field, respectively.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Collects four hits

    Ramirez went 4-for-4 with a double, three runs scored and one RBI in Monday's win over the White Sox.

    Ramirez garnered a start against the right-handed Mike Clevinger and made the most of it, tallying his first four-hit game of the season. The 29-year-old pushed his batting average to .286 (34-for-123) with the effort. However, starts against right-handed pitching may be become rarer for Ramirez as Josh Lowe (hamstring) returned from the injured list Monday to enter the mix for Rays outfield and designated hitter at-bats.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Stepping out of lineup

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Mets.

    Ramirez went 3-for-8 with a run and three strikeouts while starting the first two games of the series but will take a seat for Sunday's finale. Amed Rosario will receive a turn at designated hitter while Richie Palacios starts at the keystone.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Tallies three hits

    Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a run scored Friday against the Mets.

    Ramirez has started to see his playing time slip with righties on the mound, but he hit third in the order with lefty Jose Quintana starting for the Mets. Ramirez took advantage of the opportunity by recording multiple hits for the third time in his last 15 starts. Ramirez has only one home run across 115 plate appearances for the season, but he has 13 runs scored and 10 RBI.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: On bench again Wednesday

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    After serving as the Rays' primary designated hitter for most of the season, Ramirez could be moving into a part-time role. He's on the bench for the third time in five games, and playing time could be even more difficult to come by once Jonathan Aranda (finger) is activated from the 10-day injured list, perhaps as soon as this weekend.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Gets Monday off

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.

    Ramirez will take a seat for the second time in three days while Yandy Diaz gets a day off at first base and serves as the Rays' designated hitter after he recently returned from a left pinkie finger injury. Though Ramirez still appears to be the Rays' top option on the depth chart at DH for the time being, he'll be at risk of moving a short-side platoon role once Jonathan Aranda (finger) is activated from the 10-day injured list.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Gets breather Saturday

    Ramirez is not in the Rays' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Ramirez has started in each of the Rays' last four games, going 4-for-16 with two runs and a stolen base over that span. With Ramirez out of the lineup, Isaac Paredes will shift over to DH for Saturday's game, while Austin Shenton draws the start at first base with Yandy Diaz sitting due to a left pinky injury.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Lone source of offense

    Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run batted in during Monday's 7-3 loss to the Angels.

    Ramirez provided all three of Tampa Bay's runs, plating Jose Siri on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning before launching a two-run homer off Matt Moore in the eighth. The long ball was Ramirez's first of 2024, and just his second extra-base hit through 62 at-bats. In 15 games, Ramirez is slashing .258/.258/.323 with nine runs scored.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Steal first bag of season

    Ramirez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Friday's 2-1 win over the Giants.

    The 29-year-old provided the only offensive spark the Tampa pitching staff would need, reaching base and crossing the plate in the second and third innings. Ramirez's steal was his first of the season, and he's been spraying the ball around of late, producing five multi-hit performances in his last eight games -- although only one of his knocks during that stretch, a double, went for extra bases. On the season, he's slashing .294/.294/.314 with five RBI and seven runs in 12 contests.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Ramirez will see his streak of seven consecutive starts come to an end Wednesday as the Rays roll with Austin Shenton at designated hitter and Randy Arozarena and Richie Palacios as their starters in the corner outfield. Through his first seven games of April, Ramirez has hit .367 with five RBI and five runs.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Getting on track

    Ramirez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored Friday against the Rockies.

    Ramirez has benefitted from the absence of Jonathan Aranda (finger) early this season, as he's been in the lineup in seven of the first eight games. He started the campaign slowly with only one hit across his first 17 at-bats, though he now has a three-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 6-for-13 with two runs scored and two RBI.

  • Rays' Harold Ramirez: Not in lineup Monday

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Monday's game versus the Rangers.

    Ramirez started all four games against the Blue Jays in the designated hitter spot, but he'll begin Monday's tilt on the bench. Yandy Diaz is receiving a day at DH while Austin Shenton handles first base.
