Marlins closer A.J. Ramos motivated from recent failure


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Marlins closer A.J. Ramos doesn't want to file and forget his blown save Tuesday. He wants to use it as motivation.

Ramos, who is just 7-for-10 in save opportunities this season, allowed a game-winning home run to Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion.

"Obviously you want to forget about it, but I don't take that approach for the most part," he told the Miami Herald. "I leave it with me so that next time I'm out there it kind of fuels me. I'm very motivated. I find ways to motivate myself. It may not be conventional, like to remember that, remember that pitch and everything. But at the same time that's how I keep going forward."

Ramos, who has allowed just 16 hits and fanned 37 in 28 2/3 innings, has given up seven hits in his last 5 1/3 innings. His continued struggles could motivate the team to promote previous closer Steve Cishek, who has hurled five scoreless innings at Double-A Jacksonville after tinkering with his delivery.

The Marlins then put up two more runs in the top of the ninth. Ramos worked around a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth to record the four-out save.

"We went with Ramos with the four-out save because Duda and Murphy were a combined, 1-for-15 against him," manager Dan Jennings said. "Ramos came in and got the job done."

Marlins expected to move to closer by committee


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) After a second straight blown save for closer Steve Cishek, Marlins manager Mike Redmond is planning to make some changes, according to MLB.com.

Redmond noted he will mix and match his relievers in the ninth inning with Cishek, A.J. Ramos, Bryan Morris and Mike Dunn seeing time.

"Shrek [Cishek] has done a tremendous job for us, but at the end of the day, it's about winning games," Redmond said.

Cishek has now blown four saves this season.

"This is about as low as I can get," Cishek said. "This is a huge trial in my life right now, obviously, career-wise. I've always found a way to get out of it. I'm waiting for that time to come."

Miami has blown three saves are their current road-trip.

"It's tough to win in the big leagues, and when you get late leads, you've got to be able to lock them down," Redmond said. "Against a team like the Dodgers, they have so many weapons, great pitching. You know you're not going to get a lot off those guys. To have a lead in the ninth, you've got to be able to finish them."
