Rays' Harold Ramirez: Could soon take BP
Ramirez (thumb) could be cleared to take live batting practice as soon as Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Both Ramirez and Wander Franco (wrist) seem to be at similar points in their recoveries from injuries, as the two have both been cleared to take dry swings and could be ready to take another meaningful step forward this weekend. Ramirez, who has been sidelined since the All-Star break with a fractured right thumb, should have an everyday role waiting for him either at designated hitter or in the corner outfield once he's ready to come off the 10-day injured list. He was hitting .329 with four home runs, three steals, 35 RBI and 31 runs in 78 games prior to being deactivated.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Placed on 10-day IL
Ramirez (thumb) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to July 18, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Ramirez suffered a right thumb fracture after he was hit by a pitch Sunday against the Athletics. He's expected to be re-evaluated at the end of the month and is not eligible to return until July 28, though he's unlikely to be healthy by that point. The Rays signed Roman Quinn to a major-league contract on Thursday, and the outfielder will replace Ramirez on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Breaks thumb Sunday
Ramirez exited after the first inning of Sunday's game against the Orioles and was diagnosed with a broken right thumb, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He'll be re-evaluated in two weeks before potentially being cleared for baseball activities.
Ramirez's absence from the lineup until at least the early part of August is yet another blow to a banged-up Rays roster that already has Wander Franco (wrist), Kevin Kiermaier (hip), Mike Zunino (shoulder) and Manuel Margot (knee) sidelined with long-term injuries. Before exiting after being hit on the hand by a pitch in his lone plate appearance of Sunday's contest, Ramirez had entered the contest with a .329 batting average for the season, the third-best mark in the majors among all players with at least 200 at-bats. Brett Phillips, Christian Bethancourt and Luke Raley are the potential candidates to take on increased roles while Ramirez is out, though it wouldn't be surprising if the Rays looked to the trade market to add a more experienced piece to replace him and some of the other injured hitters on the roster....

Rays' Harold Ramirez: Getting Monday off
Ramirez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Ramirez reached base three times in Sunday's 10-5 loss to the Reds, boosting his on-base percentage to a magnificent .436 since the beginning of June. His hot run of production over the past five weeks has allowed Ramirez to settle in as a regular in the lineup, but he'll get a routine maintenance day as the Rays begin a seven-game week. Ramirez had started in 13 of the Rays' last 14 games.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Doubles thrice in loss
Ramirez went 3-for-5 with three doubles and three RBI in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Reds.
Ramirez has now produced five multi-hit games over his last eight starts to improve his season-long batting line to .321/.369/.447 across 236 plate appearances. The 27-year-old had already recently moved into a full-time role against both right- and left-handed pitching, and his hot run at the plate in addition to Kevin Kiermaier (hip) and Wander Franco (wrist) landing on the injured list Sunday should further solidify Ramirez as an everyday player. Ramirez will serve as the Rays' designated hitter and No. 2 batter in Sunday's series finale, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Takes seat Wednesday
Ramirez isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Ramirez has logged regular playing time for the Rays recently and has slashed .350/.409/.500 with a homer, three doubles, eight runs, five RBI and a stolen base over his last 10 games. He'll get a breather Wednesday while Josh Lowe starts in right field and leads off.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Pushing for full-time role
Ramirez will start in right field and bat third in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
The righty-hitting Ramirez will stick in the lineup for an eighth consecutive contest and will be making a fourth straight start against a right-handed pitcher (Ross Stripling). The Rays have mostly deployed Ramirez as a short-side platoon player this season, but he appears to have usurped the struggling Josh Lowe for a full-time spot in either the corner outfield or at designated hitter. While starting the past seven games, Ramirez has gone 11-for-26 (.423 average) with three doubles, three walks, a stolen base, five runs and three RBI.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Scores run, swipes bag
Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base Wednesday against the Brewers.
Ramirez reached base on a one-out single in the fourth inning and proceeded to steal second -- his third of the season -- before coming around to score. He's started eight of 12 games since June 14, though Ramirez's path to playing time is likely to get more difficult with Kevin Kiermaier (hip) expected back in the coming days. To his credit, Ramirez has hit well across the second half of June, maintaining a .378 batting average with one home run, six RBI and two runs scored across his last 14 contests.... See More ...

Rays' Harold Ramirez: Not in Friday's lineup
Ramirez isn't starting Friday against the Pirates, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Ramirez is getting a breather after going 3-for-7 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and a strikeout over the last two games. Randy Arozarena will serve as the designated hitter while Luke Raley starts in left field.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Belts third home run
Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-4 win over the Yankees on Tuesday.
Ramirez hit a home run in the first inning off Nestor Cortes to give him three long balls on the year. He came into the game scorching left-handed pitching to the tune of a .358 average, and his blast helped the Rays get to a very difficult lefty in Cortes. With the recent injury to teammate Manuel Margot (knee), Ramirez's .301 average should continue affording him a fair share of at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Not starting Monday
Ramirez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Ramirez went 5-for-11 with a double, three RBI, a walk and three strikeouts over the last four matchups but will be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. Randy Arozarena will serve as the designated hitter while Josh Lowe enters the lineup in left field.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Out of Sunday's lineup
Ramirez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Ramirez went 5-for-17 with three RBI while starting the past five games, but he'll head to the bench for Sunday's series finale in Baltimore. Brett Phillips will start in right field while Randy Arozarena serves as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Drives in three
Ramirez went 2-for-4 with three RBI in a 7-6 win over the Orioles on Saturday.
Ramirez hit a single, a two-run double and a game-winning sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth for another positive night at the plate. The 27-year-old outfielder is hitting .293 on the season and has been hot in June, slashing .342/.381/.395 in 12 games entering Saturday. His 98th percentile ranking in xBA suggest his batting average is legitimate, and he has shown an ability to hit the ball hard, even if his home run totals (two) are low.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Breather Thursday
Ramirez is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest versus the Cardinals, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Ramirez will take a seat after he went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs in Wednesday's victory. Randy Arozarena will slot in at designated hitter while Brett Phillips enters the lineup in right field.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Pair of RBI, runs
Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Cardinals.
Ramirez joined in the Rays' offensive barrage Wednesday by delivering an RBI double in the second inning and later grounding into a fielder's choice to drive in a run. He endured a cold stretch in late May, but Ramirez now has at least one hit in five of his last six appearances. In that span, he also has five RBI and five runs scored with a stolen base. Overall, Ramirez is hitting .284/.324/.381 across 145 plate appearances on the season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Harold Ramirez: Takes seat Tuesday
Ramirez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
With Wander Franco (quadriceps) recently joining Brandon Lowe (back) on the 10-day injured list, more reps have indirectly opened up for Ramirez, who was included in the lineup in four of the past six games. The Rays may take a rotation approach to the designated-hitter spot, but Ramirez still looks in good position to occupy that spot in most games until the team reclaims some health.... See More ...

Rays' Harold Ramirez: Notches second steal
Ramirez went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 6-3 win over the White Sox.
Ramirez contributed an RBI single before scoring on a Randy Arozarena home run in the first inning. In the sixth, Ramirez added another single and stole second. The outfielder ended May on an 0-for-10 skid, but he's now 5-for-11 with a pair of RBI and three runs scored through three games in June. The ripple effect of injuries to Wander Franco (quadriceps) and Taylor Walls) has opened up a little more consistent playing time in the near term for Ramirez, who is slashing .286/.326/.373 with two home runs, 15 RBI, 17 runs scored and two steals in four attempts through 135 plate appearances....

Rays' Harold Ramirez: Sitting in second straight
Ramirez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Before heading to the bench for Saturday's 3-1 win, Ramirez had started in each of the Rays' last nine games. However, with all of the team's key position players back to full health with the exception of Brandon Lowe (back), Ramirez looks as though he'll find himself out of the lineup against right-handed pitching more often than not....
