Dodgers' AJ Ramos: Won't make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is not expected to make the Dodgers' initial 30-man roster, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.

Ramos has a wealth of major-league experience, though he hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2018. His chance at a roster spot may have taken a hit when the Dodgers signed Jake McGee on Tuesday. While Ramos won't have a bullpen spot at the start of the campaign, it is certainly possible that he will contribute in 2020 if the need for a bullpen arm arises.

Dodgers' AJ Ramos: Tosses bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ramos was signed by the Dodgers on July 2, and it didn't take long for the veteran reliever to report to camp and get to work. The 33-year-old hasn't pitched in a professional game since 2018, but he could nonetheless claim a spot in the Dodgers' bullpen with a strong showing in summer camp.

Dodgers' AJ Ramos: Slated for bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos has recently thrown off flat ground and will likely toss a bullpen session by Wednesday in preparation for potentially hurling in an intrasquad game in 3-4 days, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Ramos joined the Dodgers on a minor-league deal July 2 and did not pitch at all in 2019, but manager Dave Roberts noted that the reliever is "in great shape" at the start of camp. That could help Ramos in his bid to make the club's active Opening Day roster, though he's unlikely to pitch in high-leverage situations out of the gate given the team's bullpen depth.

Dodgers' AJ Ramos: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos was added to the Dodgers' 60-man player pool Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

He just signed a minor-league deal earlier this month and will provide bullpen depth. If he makes the 30-man roster for Opening Day, Ramos would likely be limited to low-leverage opportunities.

Dodgers' AJ Ramos: Reaches agreement with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos agreed to a minor-league deal with the Dodgers on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

This news comes after Ramos -- who did not pitch in 2019 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum -- posted a video earlier in the week on his personal Twitter account that featured him pitching in a simulated game. The veteran right-hander will join the Dodgers' 60-man roster and should compete for a spot in the team's bullpen. Across parts of seven big-league seasons, Ramos owns a 3.07 ERA and 10.5 K/9 to go with 99 saves.

Dodgers' AJ Ramos: Lands minor-league contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Thursday and will join the 60-man player pool, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Ramos posted a video Tuesday of him pitching in a simulated game, and he'll be able to compete for a spot with the Dodgers' pitching staff as part of the team's 60-man player pool. The 33-year-old hasn't played since June of 2018, when he underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. However, he appears to have made a full recovery based on the pitches he displayed during his simulated game.

AJ Ramos: Eyeing big-league comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (shoulder) posted a video Tuesday on his personal Twitter account that features him pitching in a simulated game.

Since undergoing surgery in June 2018 to repair a torn labrum, Ramos has been conducting his lengthy rehab under the supervision of Cressey Sports Performance in Florida. Based on the data provided by Cressey in Ramos' video, he seems have made a full recovery from surgery, as he tossed a pair of fastballs that sat in the 93-to-95 mile-per-hour range and generated a fair amount of spin on his secondary offerings. At this point, there have been few rumblings about Ramos signing with a team, and with teams having set their 60-man roster pools heading into summer camp, the 33-year-old may struggle to find work at the MLB level in 2020. A one-time All-Star, Ramos owns a career 3.07 ERA and has notched 99 saves in 366 big-league innings.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Could miss more than 12 months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (shoulder) could be out for up to a year and a half, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Ramos' shoulder injury apparently involved a loose shoulder capsule. He underwent season-ending surgery in mid-June. If his recovery ends up taking the full year and a half, he could miss the entirety of the 2019 season as well.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Moved to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday.

This was merely a housekeeping move as Ramos will remain sidelined for the rest of the season after suffering a torn labrum. With Ramos shifting to the 60-day DL, he will be removed from the 40-man roster, making room for Drew Smith and Kevin Kaczmarski on the big-league club. In addition, Hansel Robles was designated for assignment.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Out for season with torn labrum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos was diagnosed with a torn labrum Tuesday. He will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the 2018 season, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Ramos has been sidelined since late May with what was being called a right shoulder strain, but the team has now revealed that the reliever is dealing with a much more serious injury. He'll end the year with a 6.41 ERA over 19.2 innings with the Mets. He's set to become a free agent this offseason.

Mets' AJ Ramos: May need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is considering surgery to address his shoulder injury, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Ramos has been on the disabled list since May 28 with a right shoulder strain. He's expected to receive a second opinion on the injury in the coming days, after which the veteran right-hander will know if surgery is necessary. Even if Ramos is able to avoid going under the knife, it sounds like the Mets are preparing to be without him for an extended period. "We certainly don't expect him back anytime soon," general manager Sandy Alderson said.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Lands on 10-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.

He has given up eight earned runs over his last 4.2 innings, and either suffered or was finally diagnosed with a right shoulder strain after giving up three runs in Saturday's game against the Brewers. It is unclear how long he will be sidelined. Robert Gsellman and Seth Lugo have been the best Mets setup men to own in fantasy thus far.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Battling shoulder tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos will travel to New York on Sunday to have his shoulder examined, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Ramos was pummeled for three runs in 0.2 innings of relief work Saturday and was reportedly feeling tightness in his shoulder after the contest. An update on his condition should arise following his MRI. He'll be unavailable to pitch Sunday.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Walks in winning run Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos walked the only two batters he faced Friday, bringing home the winning run in a 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Brewers.

Only one of the nine pitches Ramos threw in the 10th inning found the strike zone, and his final offering to Travis Shaw didn't even travel 60 feet. The veteran reliever is in a major funk right now, giving up five runs and posting a 5:5 K:BB over his last five appearances, and his 5.21 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 6.6 BB/9 on the season make him tough for either the Mets -- or fantasy GMs -- to trust.

Mets' AJ Ramos: ERA continues to rise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos served up a two-run home run to Derek Dietrich in the eighth inning of Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

The right-hander is enduring a brutal May, posting a 7.27 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB in 8.2 innings. While the K:BB is encouraging, Ramos' struggles may have cost him his spot as the Mets' main alternative to Jeurys Familia in closing situations, as Robert Gsellman picked up the save Sunday with Familia unavailable.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Strong relief performance Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos struck out two in a perfect ninth inning during Friday's extra-inning win over the Braves.

The right-hander's control has been shaky through the early part of the season, leading to a 7:7 K:BB in 8.2 innings, but Ramos has allowed only two hits to maintain a strong 2.08 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. The Mets' success so far has also provided him with a win and five holds, giving him solid fantasy value in formats that count the latter, and Ramos remains the most likely alternative for saves on nights Jeurys Familia is unavailable.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Bumpy spring so far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos has a 5.40 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB through 8.1 innings this spring.

The ERA and WHIP don't mean much given the sample size, and the walks are no surprise as control has never been Ramos' strong suit. The 31-year-old is still set to serve as Jeurys Familia's primary setup man -- and the primary option to replace him in the ninth inning if Familia's arm issues linger into the regular season.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Not primary option for saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is behind Jeurys Familia in the closer pecking order, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Ramos, who was the primary closer for the Marlins for two and a half seasons, was briefly the Mets' closer while Familia was on the disabled list last season. Earlier reports this offseason suggested that the Mets would use a closer-by-committe approach, but pitching coach Dave Eiland now says that Familia will get "most" of the save chances. That certainly doesn't rule Ramos out from getting any saves, and a run of poor outings from Familia could easily see them flipping roles, but for now, don't expect Ramos to get anywhere near half of the Mets' save opportunities.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos agreed to a one-year, $9.225 million contract with the Mets on Friday, avoiding arbitration, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Ramos has gone from $3.4 million to $6.55 million to $9.225 million in his three years of arbitration eligibility. He struggled after being traded to the Mets last summer, especially with walks (5.7 BB/9). The Mets have talked about using a closer committee to open 2018, but Ramos is clearly behind Jeurys Familia in the pecking order, and it's easy to see him falling behind Anthony Swarzak as well.

Mets' AJ Ramos: Available to pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (biceps) will be available to pitch out of the bullpen for Friday's game against the Phillies, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Ramos hasn't pitched since last Friday while he's recovered from biceps tendinitis, but is ready and available ahead of New York's final series of the 2017 season. Over the course of the year, Ramos has accumulated 27 saves while posting a 4.06 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 57.2 innings.
