Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez shuts down Yankees


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) Erasmo Ramirez tallied another quality start for the Rays on Sunday, pitching six strong innings to help Tampa Bay avoid a sweep by the Yankees. 

Ramirez allowed just three hits and one run to improve to 7-3 on the season. His lone mistake came on a sixth-inning home run by Alex Rodriguez. Otherwise, Ramirez rolled during his 99-pitch outing, striking out three while walking three. 

Ramirez has now won five of his last six decisions, lowering his ERA during that stretch from 6.62 to 3.80. 


Rays' Erasmo Ramirez suffers hard-luck loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez pitched well enough to win his fifth straight, but instead, he took a tough loss, snapping his winning streak. 

Ramirez allowed just one run in 5 2/3 innings. He gave up just two hits and a walk, while striking out seven, matching his season high.

Tampa batters couldn't muster a run until after Ramirez left, however, and the Rays' bullpen allowed five runs to keep Tampa from making a comeback. 

Since his previous loss, on May 24, Ramirez has posted a 1.13 ERA in 32 innings pitched.

Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez (groin) feeling better Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Rays pitcher Erasmo Ramirez said Sunday his injured groin was feeling way better, but he will test the groin injury during Tuesday's bullpen session, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"Erasmo came in [Sunday] feeling pretty good, so that's a good sign," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB.com. "We still don't know how we'll shape the rotation going forward. We're pretty committed to Matty [Andriese], Arch [Chris Archer] and [Nate] Karns to start the homestand. We have the off-day then there will be a lot of discussion where [Ramirez is at], how many days or how much time Erasmo will miss."

Ramirez suffered a strained groin during his last start Saturday.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Ramirez was pitching a two-hit shutout before he departed with the injury. He had three strikeouts and no walks through three-plus innings. 

The Rays are not overly concerned with the injury, but they will know more when Ramirez makes his scheduled bullpen session on Tuesday. He is slated to make his next start at home against the Red Sox on Friday, though that start is currently in question.

Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez buckles down, earns fifth win of year


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/10/2015) Rays starting pitcher Erasmo Ramirez was effective enough to record his fifth win of the season during his team's 4-2 win over the Angels on Wednesday.

Ramirez threw five innings, struck out three batters and allowed just two earned runs. Ramirez got into trouble in the third inning when singles by Erick Aybar and Mike Trout brought in runs, but he got out of it and settled down before leaving the game after 78 pitches.

Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez picks up the win on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez was effective on Thursday, though he failed to post a quality start in the victory over the Mariners. Ramirez lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing just one run on seven hits. He walked one and struck out five, lowering his season ERA to 5.10, while picking up his fourth win of the year.

Ramirez danced in-and-out of danger all evening, but the only run to score against him came on an RBI single from Robinson Cano in the fifth inning. Ramirez had only a single 1-2-3 inning in this outing.

Ramirez (4-2) is scheduled to make his next start on Wednesday at home against the Angels.


Rays' Erasmo Ramirez goes seven innings to pick up win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez tossed a gem Saturday, throwing seven shutout innings to lift Tampa Bay to a 3-0 victory over the Orioles. Ramirez allowed just three hits and struck out seven in his best performance of the season. 

Ramirez, who was making just his sixth start of the season, was economical against the Birds, needing just 84 pitches to get through seven innings, his longest outing of the year.

"All my pitches were working," Ramirez said to MLB.com. "In my mind I was just trying to execute the pitch no matter if it was inside or outside. Just execute first and then see what happened and see how the hitter took it, and that way I could feel it out."

Ramirez improves to 3-2 on the season and lowered his ERA -- which was at 31.50 after his first appearance this year -- to 5.53. 


Erasmo Ramirez drops to 2-2 with loss for Rays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez dropped to 2-2 on the season after losing to Oakland on Sunday. 

Ramirez snapped a two-decision winning streak, allowing five runs on five hits and five walks in six innings. He struck out four and allowed two home runs.

"I tried to be so perfect with my breaking ball, and instead of just throwing it into the strike zone, I tried to locate it, and I didn't, so I get myself in trouble," Ramirez said to MLB.com. "I just miss one pitch, and he takes advantage of that."

Ramirez's next start is scheduled for Saturday, at Baltimore.


Rays' Erasmo Ramirez collects win No. 2 vs. Braves


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez collected his second win of the season Tuesday night in Atlanta. 

Ramirez (2-1) issued a bases-loaded walk to Andrelton Simmons, allowed a run-scoring single to Cameron Maybin and a third run on a ground out -- all in the second frame. He was charged with three earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings of a 5-3 victory. Of his 80 pitches, 52 were strikes.

After allowing 15 earned runs over his first 5 1/3 innings pitched to start the season, Ramirez has settled down and permitted only six earned runs over his last 24 innings pitched. He will look to stay sharp Sunday at home against Oakland.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Report: Rays likely to skip turn of Erasmo Ramirez in rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) So what does Rays righty Erasmo Ramirez get for throwing five shutout innings Thursday in his first start in three weeks? He gets skipped in the rotation, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Ramirez, who earned his first win of the season by shutting down the Yankees, likely won't start again until next Saturday against Oakland. That will allow Jake Odorizzi to pitch Wednesday on normal rest.

Not that Ramirez has earned great consideration. His ERA was 8.38 heading into that encouraging performance.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Ramirez moved to 1-1 with five scoreless innings, allowing one hit. He struck out four and walked two, lowering his ERA to 6.66. 

"I was just trying to mix everything, because I've just been throwing fastball-changeup to them because I've just been in relief appearances against them," Ramirez said, per MLB.com. "When I got the chance to start, I had to show them I had more than two pitches. I have my cutter and I have my curveball … and I had to just execute my pitches."

Ramirez threw 68 pitches, 40 strikes. The Rays haven't decided when he'll start next.

(4/15/2015) Rays pitcher Erasmo Ramirez surrendered nine runs (seven earned) on eight hits and three walks in 3 1/3 innings while striking out four to take the loss in his team's 12-7 defeat against the Blue Jays.

Ramirez (0-1) was rocked for seven earned runs in two innings in a relief appearance in his only other game of the season, and his results in his first start weren't much better. The Blue Jays were able to rack up multiple runs in each of the first five innings in Wednesday's blowout win. Ramirez owns a 23.63 ERA in 5 1/3 innings. If the team opts to give him another start, it would likely come at home against the Red Sox.

Rays' Hickey on Erasmo Ramirez: 'That sinker is really legit'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey said that Erasmo Ramirez has a good enough changeup to be a swing-and-miss pitch and that the pitcher also has good action on his sinker, the Tampa Tribune reports.

"That sinker is really legit," Hickey said. "He’s got as good, if not a better sinker than anybody on our staff right now, which bodes well because the infield defense is pretty solid."

Ramirez, who was acquired in a late-March trade, will get the chance to showcase his stuff early in the season as the Rays' injured starting pitchers go through the rehab process.
