by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer Tuesday in a 6-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Ramirez's blast came in the fifth inning with the Rays down 2-0, turning the tide for the Rays against a Blue Jays team with a superior record. It was Ramirez's sixth homer and brought his batting average up to .241. He has 44 RBI and 34 runs scored in 431 at-bats on the year.

Rays' Alexei Ramirez: Signs deal with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez signed with the Rays on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

With Matt Duffy missing the rest of the season, Ramirez will likely see frequent time at shortstop for the remainder of the year. He hasn't brought much value to the plate in 2016, as he owns a .240/.275/.330 line, well below his career mark of .270/.307/.393.

Alexei Ramirez: Released by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was released by the Padres on Sunday, reports.

Ramirez had been a staple in the San Diego infield this season, appearing in 128 games and starting 105 of them at shortstop. He'll now get an opportunity to explore the free agent market, and could catch on with a contender looking to build infield depth.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez is not starting Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Adam Rosales will start at shortstop and hit eighth, giving Ramirez the day off. Ramirez is posting a poor .240 batting average for the season, but has gone 6-for-20 (.300) with a rare home run over the last seven games.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Playing time trending up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Nick Noonan was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, leaving Ramirez as the starting shortstop, at least until rosters expand in September. It has been a rough year for Ramirez, but for those looking for cheap counting stats at shortstop on the waiver wire, he makes for a serviceable option, especially if the trend of him leading off continues.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Homers in rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez, getting the start as the DH, went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Rays.

The veteran shortstop has found starts hard to come by since the trade deadline, starting just four games this month. However, Ramirez has a hit in each one of those starts, including two of his five home runs this season. The Padres have nothing to play for, which doesn't bode well for Ramirez's playing time, but if given the opportunity he may be able to provide a little pop from the shortstop position the rest of the season.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Playing time may be at risk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez may be at risk of losing playing time to 22-year-old Jose Rondon in the short term, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Ramirez is just one of the San Diego infielders whose playing time is at risk, but manager Andy Green has made it known that he plans to utilize Rondon as long as he is with the team. The Padres know what they're getting out of Ramirez, a nine-year veteran, but after clearly declaring as sellers leading up to Monday's trade deadline, the team now seems to be leaning towards evaluating their young talent. There hasn't been a clear indication whether or not Rondon is with the club to stay, but as long as he's on the 25-man roster, no infielder's playing time is 100 percent secure.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

Ramirez is in the middle of an awful hitting slump after going just 1-for-23 over the last seven days. Jose Rondon will start at shortstop against the right-handed Homer Bailey.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Not in lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against St. Louis.

With two games in a day, getting rest in the afternoon doesn't mean Ramirez won't play at night. For the day game, Alexi Amarista will take over at shortstop and hit eighth.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Knocks in run during victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a double and RBI in Thursday's 6-0 victory over the Dodgers.

Thursday's outing doubled Ramirez's hit total for the Month of July, bringing him to 4-for-27 across seven games. His recent struggles have brought his batting average and on-base percentage down to .240 and .272, respectively. Apart from occasional (and short) bursts where he'll post a multi-hit game or two, Ramirez is unlikely to become a regular contributor to the Padres' mediocre offense.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Explodes for two-homer game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two homers, five RBI and three runs against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Apparently San Diego isn't such a bad place to hit after all, as nearly all the Padres had the offensive fever in this one. Ramirez has been on a little surge over the last seven games, hitting .367 (11-for-30) with all three of his 2016 homers and eight RBI in that span, but the 34-year-old shortstop is unlikely to start reliving his glory days anytime soon. He's best left for NL-only formats.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Hits first homer this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a home run and a strikeout Sunday against Arizona.

The veteran shortstop is not known for his power, but he can go yard from time to time as evidenced by Sunday's fifth-inning blast to center field. The homer might be what he needs to get out of his slump, as he's gone 6-for-35 (.171) over the past 11 games.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Returns to lineup against San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez will start and bat seventh for Monday's game against San Francisco.

Ramirez did not start Sunday's game against Los Angeles but is back in the lineup, starting at shortstop Monday against San Francisco. The 34-year-old is currently in the midst of a May-slump as he's batting 12-for-67 (.179) this month with an unsightly .211 OBP. Maybe Sunday's game off will help Ramirez begin to right the ship as he faces off against Drew Pomeranz for the Giants.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez will not start Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

Considering Ramirez owns just a .234/.264/.286 batting line this season, his absence shouldn't have a large overall reach in the fantasy realm, but he'll regardless take a seat in favor of Alexi Amarista on Sunday. Ramirez will likely rejoin the lineup when the Padres travel to San Francisco on Monday, despite how poorly he's played of late.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Back in the lineup for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez is in the lineup and batting fifth in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Ramirez exited Tuesday's game with cramping in his hamstring but it does not appear to be serious as he saw brief action in Game 1 Wednesday and is back in the lineup for the final game of the Cubs-Padres series. The 34-year-old shortstop is looking to break out of a 10-game slump where he's batted 8-for-35 with only four RBI and one run.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Not in lineup for Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Mark Sweeney of Fox Sports reports.

Ramirez was lifted from Tuesday night's game due to cramping in his hamstring, but he told the media that he did not expect to miss any time. Regardless, the Padres will hold Ramirez out of Game 1, likely as a precaution, with the possibility that he could be available for the nightcap. Adam Rosales will get the nod at shortstop for the early game, and he'll bat eighth against Chicago's Kyle Hendricks.

Padres' Alexei Ramirez: Says he will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez (hamstring cramping) said after Tuesday's game that he will be ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

It is still worth double-checking Ramirez's status when Wednesday's lineups are released, but it sounds like the Padres have dodged a bullet with this one, as they are running dangerously low on infield options. Ramirez will offer double-digit steals over a full season, but that will be the only category where he offers meaningful contributions, so he is best saved for deeper leagues.
