Ramirez (shoulder) was brought back from the 60-day DL and outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Ramirez appeared in just seven games for Atlanta this past year due to a shoulder injury that initially placed him on the disabled list in mid-April. He suffered a setback in June and was officially shut down from a rehab assignment in mid-September since there just wasn't enough time for him to return to full health. Looking ahead, Ramirez should be back to 100 percent prior to spring training as the 28-year-old looks to earn a place in the Braves' bullpen.
Ramirez (shoulder) will be shut down for the rest of the year, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Ramirez began a rehab stint Sept. 3 at Triple-A Gwinnett, although it's since been decided that there just isn't enough time for him to return to health before the season comes to an end. He made just seven appearances for the Braves in 2018, allowing 12 runs while striking out seven over 6.2 frames. Ramirez figures to be ready for the start of spring training.
Ramirez (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.
Ramirez has been on the shelf since mid-April with a shoulder injury. Given the length of his absence, the right-hander will likely need multiple appearances to build his arm back up. That said, it sounds like the Braves are expecting Ramirez to return sometime before the end of the season.
Manager Brian Snitker said Ramirez (shoulder) is feeling better and could possibly return in September, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports.
This is encouraging news, as Ramirez has been on the shelf since mid-April with a shoulder injury. There was some talk about shutting Ramirez down for the season in July, but it now sounds like the 28-year-old right-hander could return to action sometime during the final month of the season if everything goes as planned.
Manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that Ramirez (shoulder) may not return to the mound this season, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Ramirez has been on the DL since mid-April due to right shoulder inflammation. He suffered a setback in early June during a live batting practice session and has yet to resume throwing.
Ramirez (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Friday.
Ramirez has been on the DL since mid-April and recently suffered a setback during a live batting practice session. The right-hander's timetable to return remains unclear, and this move doesn't provide us with any new information as Ramirez has already spent over 60 days on the shelf. In a corresponding move, Danny Santana's contract was selected from the minors and Mike Soroka was placed on the 10-day DL (shoulder).
Ramirez (shoulder) suffered a setback Saturday during a live batting practice session, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Ramirez has been on the disabled list since April 18 with right shoulder inflammation, and he felt pain in his throwing shoulder during his first session against batters since the injury. He was later sent to Atlanta for further evaluation. Ramirez's status will likely be determined by the findings of Atlanta's team doctor.
Ramirez (shoulder) has been shut down from throwing for at least two weeks, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Ramirez will clearly need more than the minimum stay on the disabled list, as he'll need time to rebuild his arm strength after he resumes throwing. He'll be out until at least mid-May.
Ramirez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Ramirez had reportedly been dealing with the issue for at least a few days. He'll now be out for a minimum of 10 days, though it's not yet clear whether or not he'll need more time than that. Jesse Biddle, a 2010 first-round pick, will receive his first big-league callup to take Ramirez's place.
Ramirez stated Tuesday that he's been bothered by shoulder tightness recently, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Ramirez -- who allowed four runs in one inning of relief Tuesday -- said that he's been dealing with shoulder tightness since spring training but that it just recently began to really bother him. The Braves could opt to give the reliever a few days off for rest, but if the injury persists he may require a trip to the disabled list. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Ramirez (0-2) was tagged with the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks in one inning against the Phillies.
Ramirez entered to start the 10th inning, but he was all over the place and hit hard even when he did find the zone. It's the second straight blowup for the 28-year-old, who gave up five runs while recording just one out in his last outing, running his ERA to an unsightly 17.05.
Ramirez has allowed just one run on two hits and one walk while striking out three across 5.0 innings this spring.
Ramirez is set to be one of Atlanta's top arms out of the bullpen this year, after an impressive showing in 2017. He finished the year with 27 holds and a 3.19 ERA along with 56 strikeouts across 62.0 innings. Ramirez looks to have definite fantasy value if he can maintain his success from a season ago.
Ramirez has posted a 2.66 ERA across 61 innings pitched this season with the Braves.
The young right-hander has shown definite improvement from last season, shaving nearly a full run off his ERA from a year ago. The 27-year-old is pitching at the back end of the bullpen and will continue to pitch in high-leverage situations -- he has recorded 17 holds in his last 35 appearances.
Ramirez has allowed three runs (two earned) with seven holds across his last nine appearances (eight innings).
The 27-year-old had an ugly 5.79 ERA over 9.1 innings in June, but still carries a 2.70 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with 31 strikeouts across 36.2 innings this season. Ramirez now leads the Braves with 16 holds on the season, and should see more opportunities for high-leverage situations if he can continue to rebound from his rough June.
Ramirez has a 2.36 ERA and 0.98 WHIP across 26.2 innings this season.
The 27-year-old has nine holds and two victories this season, but has not recorded a hold in his last six appearances. Ramirez has performed well out of the bullpen thus far, but opportunities for high-leverage situations are likely to remain inconsistent with the Braves.
Ramirez gave up two runs on three hits and a walk against Pittsburgh on Wednesday, blowing the save in the ninth inning before his team lost in the 10th.
He got the call in this one after a presumably tired Jim Johnson blew the save Tuesday, but Ramirez didn't make much of an argument for a hostile takeover of the ninth-inning role. The 27-year-old righty will have to continue biding his time in setup duty until a potential Johnson trade opens up an opportunity for Ramirez and Arodys Vizcaino to compete for save chances.
Ramirez pitched a perfect seventh inning Monday to notch his seventh hold of the season in a win over the Pirates.
The 27-year-old has been extremely reliable in a setup role for the Braves this season, and Ramirez now has a 1.31 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB in 20.2 innings. With Jim Johnson a possible trade chip to go along with Arodys Vizcaino's checkered injury history, Ramirez and his 97.3 mph average fastball are an intriguing spec saves play in deeper formats.
Ramirez enjoyed a solid first month of the 2017 season, allowing just two runs in 12 innings of relief.
Ramirez struck out nine while walking five, and he posted a 0.75 WHIP along the way. His two runs allowed both came in one outing, and he has handed in scoreless performances in his other 11 appearances. The 27-year-old tends to be used in the later innings, and he has proved himself in those high-leverage situations.
Ramirez gave up one hit and two walks while striking out two in two scoreless innings of relief in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Mets.
Working the ninth and 10th innings, Ramirez got into a jam in the 10th after a Jay Bruce one-out double, but the right-hander struck out Travis d'Arnaud and Ty Kelly to end the threat. Ramirez has already thrown 3.1 innings through two games and appears to be slotted into a long-relief role in the Braves bullpen, a job which likely won't provide him with much fantasy value.
Ramirez is expected to win a bullpen spot with the Braves this spring.
The 27-year-old is now on his third organization after coming over from the Mariners in 2015, but has yet to establish himself as a reliable major league arm. He did post solid numbers for the Braves in 32.2 innings last season after a strong run for Triple-A Gwinnett, though, and in a bullpen lacking in proven arms, Ramirez stands a good shot at winning a significant role this spring. He could be a useful source of strikeouts and holds this year.
