Ramirez (pectoral) has been doing some activity at the Tigers' spring training facility recently, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Ramirez has been on the 10-day injured list since May 8 due to a right pectorals strain, but he appears to be making some progress in his recovery. However, manager A.J. Hinch didn't provide specifics regarding when Ramirez could return to game action.
Ramirez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right pectoralis strain Saturday.
Ramirez's contract was selected by the Tigers on Friday, but he didn't appear in the series opener against the Twins. Right-hander Joe Jimenez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Ramirez had his contract selected by the Tigers on Friday.
The 31-year-old failed to make the Opening Day roster but will join the Tigers five weeks into the season. Ramirez has six appearances out of the bullpen for the Mets last season and surrendered one run on eight hits with a 9:4 K:BB across 14.1 innings.
The Tigers reassigned Ramirez on Tuesday to their alternate training site in Toledo.
The team already informed Ramirez that he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster, and this move makes it official. The righty pitched well this spring, posting a 0.77 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB across 11.2 innings, and with some solid MLB experience in his back pocket, he could certainly get called up at some point.
Ramirez was informed Wednesday that he won't be included on the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Ramirez, who had been competing for a bullpen role, will remain with the Tigers for the remainder of the Grapefruit League season before heading to the team's alternate training site. If Ramirez doesn't receive a call-up prior to the start of the minor-league season, he'll likely report to Triple-A Toledo, where he could be an option to pitch in relief or as a starter. Ramirez has posted a 0.77 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB in 11.2 innings over his five appearances this spring.
Ramirez tossed three scoreless innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays and has a 0.77 ERA this spring.
Ramirez, who is in camp as a non-roster invitee, has made a strong case for a roster spot with the 0.77 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and nine strikeouts across 11.2 innings. The veteran reliever posted a 0.63 ERA and 0.84 WHIP across 14.1 innings for the Mets in 2020, so while it's not a huge sample, Ramirez has pitched well recently and could stick on a Detroit team in need of reliable bullpen options.
Ramirez joined the Tigers as a non-roster invitee Tuesday.
Ramirez threw 14.1 innings of relief for the Mets last season, allowing just a single earned run. It took quite a bit of good fortune to get to that number, as seen in his .179 BABIP and 100 percent strand rate, but he's been a competent pitcher for most of his nine-year career, posting a career 4.31 ERA.
The Mets placed Ramirez on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right groin tightness, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The injury will sideline Ramirez for the Mets' season finale Sunday against the Nationals, but he should be back to full health by the time spring training rolls around. Ramirez dazzled in a small sample of six appearances in the New York bullpen this season, posting a 0.63 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 14.1 innings.
Ramirez had his contract selected by the Mets on Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
The 30-year-old signed a minor-league deal in January and missed out on the Opening Day roster, but he'll now get a September opportunity in New York. Ramirez appeared in only one game last season with Boston and gave up four runs over three innings, and he had a 6.50 ERA over 45.2 innings with Seattle in 2018.
Ramirez could be added to the 30-man roster in order to make a spot start or serve as a bulk reliever Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The Mets' pitching depth is already being tested, as Rick Porcello's short outing Sunday forced Corey Oswalt to throw over 70 pitches in relief and took him out of the picture for Tuesday's start. Ramirez and David Peterson -- or perhaps even both of them -- are the most likely candidates to get the call to soak up some innings, but as neither of them are currently on the 40-man roster, the club could also elect to try and piece together a pure bullpen game instead.
Ramirez won't be included on the Mets' Opening Day roster but is expected to be a member of the three-man taxi squad, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Ramirez had a strong showing in summer camp as a non-roster invitee, but it wasn't enough for the team to warrant adding him to the 40-man roster. Still, as a member of the taxi squad the 30-year-old likely will be the first pitcher in line to join the team once there's a roster opening.
The Mets re-signed Ramirez on Monday and plan to add him to their 60-man roster pool.
New York will bring back Ramirez after he signed a minor-league deal with the organization in January that included an invitation to big-league spring training. The right-hander has mostly served as a starter over parts of eight seasons in the majors, but Ramirez is likely slated to work out of the Mets' bullpen in 2020 if the members of the rotation all stay relatively healthy.
Ramirez agreed Sunday with the Mets on a minor-league contract, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
The exact terms of Ramirez's deal aren't yet available, but Sanchez relays that the right-hander's contract includes an invitation to big-league spring training. Aside from one long-relief appearance with Boston, Ramirez spent the entirety of the 2019 campaign with the Red Sox's Triple-A affiliate at Pawtucket. Over 125.1 innings in the International League, Ramirez has posted a 4.74 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 95:43 K:BB.
Ramirez was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
After getting designated for assignment earlier in the week, he will officially head to Triple-A. Now that he is no longer on the 40-man roster, Ramirez may spend the rest of the year in the minors.
Ramirez was designated for assignment by Boston on Friday.
Ramirez's contract was selected from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, but after just one appearance (in which he allowed four runs in three innings) he's been removed from not just the 25-man roster but the 40-man roster as well. After recording a 6.50 ERA in 10 starts for the Mariners last season, it's not guaranteed that he'll generate much interest on the waiver wire.
Ramirez's contract was purchased from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Ramirez has a mediocre 4.36 ERA in seven big-league seasons. He was particularly poor last year, getting knocked around for a 6.50 ERA in 10 starts with the Mariners. He'll fill a bullpen role in Boston, taking the spot vacated by Marcus Walden after Walden was optioned Monday.
The Red Sox reassigned Ramirez to their minor-league camp Monday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
After working primarily as a starting pitcher since reaching the big leagues in 2012, Ramirez was competing for a bullpen role with the Red Sox in spring training. The right-hander racked up 12 strikeouts over 10 innings this spring, but surrendered nine runs (six earned) on 12 hits (including three home runs) and one walk. Given his extensive big-league experience the past several seasons, Ramirez could request a release from the Red Sox rather than reporting to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Ramirez is expected to sign a minor-league deal with the Red Sox on Monday, an agreement which includes an invitation to spring training, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
Ramirez spent 2018 with the Mariners, starting 10 games and posting an ugly 6.50 ERA. His chances of making Boston's roster may be greater as a reliever. For his career, the 28-year-old has a 4.46 ERA as a starter and a 4.04 ERA out of the bullpen.
Ramirez elected free agency after being outrighted from Seattle's 40-man roster Friday.
Ramirez only appeared in 10 games for the Mariners in 2018 due to a shoulder injury that cost him over three months of action. In those 10 starts, he logged a 6.50 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with just 33 strikeouts in 45.2 innings. The 28-year-old right-hander will look for a new home after returning to Seattle from Tampa Bay at the 2017 non-waiver trade deadline.
Ramirez will work out of the bullpen to close out the 2018 season with James Paxton and Roenis Elias listed as the Mariners' probable starters for the final two games of their season-ending series with the Rangers.
Ramirez lost his rotation spot earlier in the week when Felix Hernandez returned from a hamstring injury, but there was renewed hope that the right-hander might draw a start after the Mariners decided to skip Mike Leake's final turn through the rotation Sunday against Texas. Instead, it appears manager Scott Servais will turn to Elias for those honors, though both Ramirez and/or Leake could be summoned from the bullpen behind Elias. All 10 of Ramirez's appearances with the big club have come as a starter this season, with the 28-year-old submitting a 6.50 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across 45.2 innings.
