  • Cesar Ramos: Released by Dodgers

    The Dodgers released Ramos Saturday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

    Ramos signed a minor-league contract with Los Angeles in February but did not see the start of the minor-league season. The 33-year-old hasn't seen major-league action since posting a 6.04 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 47.2 innings with the Rangers in 2016.

  • Dodgers' Cesar Ramos: Minors deal with Dodgers

    Ramos agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

    Ramos didn't appear in any major-league games last season, instead spending the entire campaign with Triple-A Lehigh Valley within the Phillies' system. He posted a 4.00 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with a 74:31 K:BB in 92.1 innings of work split between the rotation and bullpen, and should provide extra organizational depth for Los Angeles this year.

  • Phillies' Cesar Ramos: Signs minor league deal with Phillies

    Ramos signed a minor league contract with the Phillies that includes an invitation to spring training, the Morning Call's Stephen Gross reports.

    He posted a 6.04 ERA and struck out just 27 batters in 47.2 innings last year with the Rangers, working primarily as a starter. However, for his career, he has a 3.89 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 18.5 percent strikeout rate as a reliever, so he could catch on with the big league club in a low-leverage role at some point next season.

  • Tigers' Cesar Ramos: Signs minor league contract with Tigers

    Ramos inked a minor league contract with Detroit on Friday, and will head to Triple-A Toledo.

    Ramos was DFA'd by the Rangers on July 22 and cleared waivers a week later before being scooped up by the Tigers. During his time with Texas, Ramos posted a 6.04 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP during 47.2 innings of work, appearing in 16 games with four starts sprinkled in. He could wind up getting some time on the Tigers within the next couple months, but will begin his time with the organization in Toledo.

  • Cesar Ramos: Clears waivers, becomes free agent

    Ramos cleared waivers and became a free agent Thursday.

    Designated for assignment Friday, Ramos went through his waiver period unclaimed but instead of accepting a minor league designation, he elected to become a free agent. The 32-year-old has been abysmal for Texas this season, posting a 6.04 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 47.2 innings, but given his history of relative success at the major league level, he's likely to be scooped up by another organization in need of bullpen depth.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Designated for assignment Friday

    Ramos was designated for assignment prior to Friday's game against the Royals, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Ramos was DFA'd in a corresponding move to the activation of Jake Diekman from the disabled list. During his time with the Rangers this season, Ramos started four games and appeared in 16 total, posting a 6.04 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP over the course of 47.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Gives up eight runs in loss to Athletics

    Ramos was torched for eight runs (six earned) on eight hits and five walks over just 3.2 innings in Monday's loss to Oakland.

    Ramos's return to the rotation was only due to an injury to Yu Darvish. He had neither control nor command on Monday and may not get another shot in the rotation as a result even though Darvish is headed to the disabled list. Ramos has a 4.88 ERA in 31.1 innings and has already allowed six home runs. He managed just one strikeout in Monday's disaster and now has an ugly 18:15 K:BB.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Confirmed as Monday starter

    Ramos will start Monday's game against Oakland, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

    With Yu Darvish (shoulder) set to miss at least one outing, Ramos will make his fourth start of the season in what will be his first appearance since June 4. The 31-year-old lefty threw 96, 94 and 80 pitches in his first three starts, allowing five runs over 16.1 innings with 13 strikeouts. He'll have a favorable matchup in a pitcher-friendly ballpark Monday, but if he does get a second start this week, it would line up for Saturday in St. Louis. Meanwhile, Darvish is back in Dallas for an MRI and further examination.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Picks up three-inning save against Cleveland

    Ramos picked up a three-inning save in Monday's blowout win over Cleveland.

    Ramos continues to be useful in a swing role. Between three starts and three relief appearances, he now has a 3.51 ERA, but his meager 10 strikeouts in 25.2 innings leaves something to be desired.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Collects first victory Saturday

    Ramos (1-2) allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out three over six innings to earn the win Saturday at the Astros.

    The only damage Ramos allowed was a solo homer in the third inning, and the offense did just enough to get him the win. He's now allowed two runs in his last 11.1 innings over two starts to lower his ERA to 3.57. He'll make his next start Friday against the Pirates.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Fails to finish five innings Sunday

    Ramos allowed one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings, but received no decision Sunday against the Blue Jays.

    Ramos struggled with control, leading him to burn through 94 pitches before making it through the fifth inning. He's now allowed 15 baserunners in his last 6.1 innings to raise his WHIP to 1.80. He'll make his next start Saturday at Houston.

  • Rangers' Cesar Ramos: Takes loss in spot start Monday against Yankees

    Ramos (0-1) took the loss as he allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks over six innings in his first MLB start of 2016 Monday against the Rangers.

    Ramos was forced into the starting rotation by a groin injury for Rangers ace Cole Hamels. He managed to scatter nine hits, and while he allowed two home runs, they were both of the solo variety. Ramos was nasty at times, as he induced 11 swinging strikes in 96 pitches. But Ramos's fastball topped out at just 92.5 MPH, and Yankees hitters punished him when he made mistakes. Ramos posted a 2.75 ERA in 52.1 relief innings last season for the Angels. He has rarely started, as Monday marked just his 11th MLB start in 252 appearances, so we'll have to wait and see how long he sticks in this role for the Rangers.
