Blue Jays' Neil Ramirez: Tabbed as Monday's opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez will serve as the Blue Jays' opener Monday against the Rangers, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Ramirez signed with the Blue Jays earlier this week after being released by the Indians and had his contract selected from Triple-A on Sunday. Either Brock Stewart or Zack Godley will be the bulk pitcher to follow.

Blue Jays' Neil Ramirez: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez's contract was selected from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Sunday's game against the Yankees.

He allowed five runs in an inning back on July 26, which hurt his ratios, but he has not allowed a run in eight of his last 10 appearances for the Bisons. Look for him to work in low-leverage situations.

Blue Jays' Neil Ramirez: Signed by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez joined the Blue Jays on a minor-league deal Wednesday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Ramirez tossed 16.2 innings for Cleveland this year, posting an unimpressive 5.40 ERA. He owns a career 4.41 mark in parts of six seasons but hasn't recorded an ERA below 4.50 since 2015. He'll head to High-A Dunedin to build up for now, but he could join the Blue Jays' bullpen at some point down the stretch.

Neil Ramirez: Cut loose by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was released by Cleveland on Friday.

Ramirez opened the year in the big leagues but was designated for assignment in mid-May after recording a 5.40 ERA in 16.2 innings. He then went on to record a 4.91 ERA in 29.1 innings for Triple-A Columbus. He'll presumably be looking for a minor-league contract with a new club.

Indians' Neil Ramirez: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus.

He passed through waivers unclaimed and will head to Triple-A to serve as organizational bullpen depth.

Indians' Neil Ramirez: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was designated for assignment Saturday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

The move opens up a roster spot for Adam Plutko. Ramirez had a 5.40 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 18:9 K:BB in 16.2 innings for the Indians.

Indians' Neil Ramirez: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez signed a one-year, $1 million deal with Cleveland on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

Ramirez appeared in 47 games for the Indians in 2018, posting a 4.54 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 51 strikeouts in 41.2 innings of relief. The 29-year-old will have a chance to crack the club's Opening Day roster this spring after starting the past year at the Triple-A level.

Indians' Neil Ramirez: Returns from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez (back) was activated off the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Casey Harrison of MLB.com reports.

Ramirez had a brief rehab stint at Double-A Akron and is able to make a quick return from lower-back spasms that put him on the disabled list Aug. 23. The 29-year-old has a 4.59 ERA and 1.17 WHIP over 33.1 innings with the Indians this season.

August 30, 2018 03:12 PM
Indians' Neil Ramirez: Rehabbing at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez (back) made a rehab appearance at Double-A Akron on Wednesday, retiring three of the five hitters he faced and notching a strikeout.

Ramirez has only been on the disabled list for about a week after experiencing lower-back spasms, so the rehab appearance may be the only one he requires before rejoining the Indians. He'll likely be reinstated from the DL on Sunday when first eligible.

August 23, 2018 10:08 AM
Indians' Neil Ramirez: Put on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was placed on the 10-day DL on Thursday due to lower-back spasms.

Ramirez appeared to have suffered the injury during Wednesday's relief appearance against Boston. He will be sidelined for the rest of the month, but isn't expected to miss much more than the minimum while recovering from this issue. in a corresponding move, Josh Tomlin (hamstring) was reinstated from the DL.

Indians' Neil Ramirez: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez had his contract purchased from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Ramirez will take the roster spot of Bradley Zimmer (chest), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old owns a solid 2.55 ERA and 31:3 K:BB across 17.2 innings with the Clippers this season, but his 7.18 ERA across 31.1 big-league innings in 2017 will likely limit him to lower-leverage situations during his time with the big club.

Indians' Neil Ramirez: Agrees to minor-league deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez signed a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Indians on Thursday.

Ramirez spent the 2017 season jumping from organization to organization, finishing with the Nationals after being with the Giants, Blue Jays and Mets earlier in the year. All in all, he appeared in 29 major-league games, posting a 7.18 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over 31.1 relief innings. Looking ahead, Ramirez will likely start out the season with Triple-A Columbus and should provide organizational depth for the Indians.

Nationals' Neil Ramirez: Signs with Nationals on minors pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez inked a minor-league deal with the Nationals on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The reliever will stay in the NL East after being designated for assignment by the Mets late last week. Because he's on a minor-league deal, Ramirez is unlikely to join the Nationals in the near future. Still, he could help a leaky Nationals bullpen down the stretch if he can improve in terms of limiting baserunners given his 1.79 WHIP and 62.0 percent strand rate over 31.1 major-league innings this season.

July 23, 2017 10:04 AM
Mets' Neil Ramirez: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, MLB.com reports.

With 44 strikeouts over 31.1 innings this season with the Giants and Mets, Ramirez has occasionally flashed signs of dominance out of the bullpen, but his issues with the long ball and putting runners on base were too significant to overcome. After the Mets dropped him from the 40-man roster earlier in the week, Ramirez will remain in the organization, but his path back to the big leagues now becomes much more difficult.

July 20, 2017 01:12 PM
Mets' Neil Ramirez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Mets on Thursday.

New York deemed the right-hander expendable upon activating southpaw Josh Smoker (elbow). Ramirez carries a 7.18 ERA on the year with 44 strikeouts and 21 walks in 31.1 innings and could catch on with another club if he isn't outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Mets' Neil Ramirez: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez failed to record an out Tuesday against the Marlins, allowing a hit and a walk to lead off the seventh inning before watching both runners come around to score and getting charged with the loss.

The 28-year-old right-hander has been a disaster since joining the Mets in mid-May, posting a 6.46 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 19:15 K:BB in 15.1 innings. Ramirez has already bounced through three organizations this season, and it may not be long before he's looking for a fourth.

May 16, 2017 11:20 AM
Mets' Neil Ramirez: Inks major-league deal with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez signed a major-league deal with the Mets on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

He elected free agency when he was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays last week, and that decision paid off. Ramirez has a career 3.72 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 27.7 percent strikeout rate in 92 MLB innings. Look for him to pitch in low-leverage situations out of the big-league bullpen going forward.

May 14, 2017 08:08 PM
Neil Ramirez: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez declined his outright assignment and opted to become a free agent Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Prior to being acquired by the Blue Jays, Ramirez began the season with the Giants. With San Francisco, he pitched 10.1 innings over nine games and gave up 10 runs in that time. If a club opts to sign Ramirez, he'll likely serve as organizational depth.

Blue Jays' Neil Ramirez: DFA'd by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk reports.

After being claimed off waivers by Toronto last Thursday, Ramirez was ousted from the roster before making an appearance for the Blue Jays. The move clears room on the roster for Tuesday's spot starter, Mike Bolsinger. He could draw interest on waivers given his 18 strikeouts across 10.1 innings this season, though he also holds a brutal 8.91 ERA and 1.84 WHIP across those innings.

May 5, 2017 08:48 PM
Blue Jays' Neil Ramirez: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramirez was activated by the Blue Jays on Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Ramirez was added to the Jays' active roster just a day after being claimed off waivers. It's unclear what role Ramirez will serve with the Blue Jays, but given he holds an 8.91 ERA and 1.84 WHIP from 10.1 innings with the Giants earlier this season, he'll likely only see low-leverage situations.
