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
(5/17/2015) The Rays made a change to the starting rotation for a two-game series against Atlanta, per MLB.com

Nathan Karns was originally scheduled to start the series opener, on Tuesday. Instead Erasmo Ramirez will take the mound. The move was done to get Karns additional rest. 

Jake Odorizzi will start Wednesday's game. 


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.


Rays' Erasmo Ramirez earns first win of season


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez won his first game of the season, Thursday over the Yankees. 

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. 


Rays announced RHP Erasmo Ramirez will get the start Thursday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Rays' Erasmo Ramirez rocked in loss vs. Blue Jays Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(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 P Erasmo Ramirez rocked in loss to Marlins


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Rays pitcher Erasmo Ramirez has a rough two innings during Friday night's 10-9 loss to the Marlins. 

Ramirez was responsible for seven of Miami's 10 runs. His seven earned runs came on six hits and three walks. Ramirez struck out two batters. The Rays used eight pitchers in the game as part of their interleague strategy. 

Six of Ramirez's runs came in the fourth inning. 

''This is my first game (of the season), but that's no excuse,'' Ramirez said. ''I was supposed to throw strikes and keep the score to 1-1 or maybe 2-1, but I didn't.''

There's a chance Ramirez starts on Tuesday with only three days rest.

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.


Rays' Matt Andriese, Ersamo Ramirez available out of the bullpen

Rays starters Andriese, Ramirez get work against the Tigers on Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Erasmo Ramirez pitched the next 3 2/3 innings for the Rays and allowed one earned run on two hits and struck out six.

Acquired from Seattle on Tuesday, Ramirez surrendered the game's only run -- a home run to designated hitter Victor Martinez.

"I missed one pitch and he made me pay for that," Ramirez said. "But after that pitch I just realized what I have to do, just be myself and be on the same page as the catcher and execute the pitch.''

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Friday that Andriese and Ramirez have both made the Opening Day roster but hasn't decided which pitcher will start the fourth game of the season April 10 at Miami.


Rays' Matt Andriese, Erasmo Ramirez make Opening Day roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash said Friday pitchers Matt Andriese and Erasmo Ramirez have both made the Opening Day roster. However, he hasn't decided who will start the fourth game of the season April 10 at Miami.

GM: Erasmo Ramirez could see 'meaningful innings' with Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Newly acquired Rays pitcher Erasmo Ramirez will make the Opening Day roster and pitch " meaningful innings," possibly as a starter, general manager Matt Silverman told reporters on Wednesday, per the team's official website.

"Most likely, [he'll be in the starting rotation]," manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB.com. "But we're not ready to commit to that. But most likely. We have to get him here first. Talk to him. See what he's been doing and stuff like that."

Ramirez was acquired by the Rays in exchange for pitcher Mike Montgomery on Wednesday. The 24-year-old right-hander went 1-2 with a 6.23 ERA this spring. His arrival will likely bump Matt Andriese out of the No. 4 spot in Tampa Bay's rotation.


Mariners trade Erasmo Ramierez to Rays for Mike Montgomery


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) The Mariners have traded pitcher Erasmo Ramirez to the Rays in exchange for pitcher Mike Montgomery, the teams announced.

Mariners pitcher Erasmo Ramirez struggles in outing Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Mariners pitcher Erasmo Ramirez gave up four runs, two earned, in just 1 2/3 innings pitched Monday against the Angels. 

Ramirez, who is competing for a spot in the starting rotation, added just one strikeout to his totals.

"I started missing too much up, even when I was ahead in the count," Ramirez said to MLB.com. "That's what I've been working on all Spring Training, and even last year, that was the problem -- finishing the hitters. That's what happened in the second inning."


Mariners' Erasmo Ramirez tossed four one-hit innings vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Mariners pticher Erasmo Ramirez continued his bid to make the rotation Wednesday, allowing just one hit and one walk in four scoreless innings while striking out two.

Ramirez struggled in his first start of the spring but has been much better in his last two outings, giving up one run on just three hits and one walk in seven innings. However, he could be facing an uphill battle with former top prospect Taijuan Walker also pitching well this spring.

"I'm happy, I feel good because the command was there," Ramirez said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I just made one bad pitch to Gentry, right down the middle. But the whole deal is just to execute. If you miss one just come back with the next pitch."


Mariners' Erasmo Ramirez 'way better' Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Mariners pitcher Erasmo Ramirez followed up a shaky spring debut by giving up one earned run on two hits, one a home run, in three innings while striking out two and walking none Wednesday, and he called his performance "way better" after the outing, MLB.com reports.

"It was way better," said Ramirez. "Last time, I was fighting for the strike zone. But today all my pitches were in command. I just made the one mistake, a little high [to Tulowitzki]. He's a great hitter and he took advantage of that. But my body feels great and I'm happy with how I'm working in the strike zone, mixing pitches and executing pitches, which is the most important thing right now."

Manager Lloyd McClendon said earlier in camp that the team was not considering Ramirez for a relief role, so he's due to continue getting stretched out in hopes of cracking the rotation.
