Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Collects first career save
Ramirez struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his first career save in the second game of a doubleheader against the Red Sox.
Clay Holmes, Tommy Kahnle and Wandy Peralta had all worked the matinee, so manager Aaron Boone had to get a bit creative in the nightcap with his bullpen. Ramirez was up to the task in the ninth, needing only 13 pitches (eight strikes) to breeze through Boston's 2-3-4 hitters. The 34-year-old lefty has bounced between the majors and Triple-A in the second half but has been effective when called upon, posting a 1.84 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB through 14.2 big-league innings since the All-Star break....

Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Back in majors
The Yankees recalled Ramirez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
Ramirez has a 2.67 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 33.2 innings in the majors this season, and he'll return to the Yankees' bullpen as Albert Abreu (hamstring) hits the injured list. Ramirez will likely serve in middle relief.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Optioned to Triple-A
Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.
Ramirez has pitched well this season with a 2.67 ERA and 25:9 K:BB over 33.2 frames, but he finds himself back in the minors nonetheless. The Yankees haven't announced a corresponding move yet, but it's expected to be Randy Vasquez coming up to start Friday in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Back with big club
The Yankees recalled Ramirez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.
Ramirez had been optioned to Triple-A on Friday, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the Yankees just three days later after left-hander Carlos Rodon (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Since Rodon lasted just 2.2 innings into his start Sunday against the Astros before departing with the injury, Ramirez will be called upon to provide a fresh arm to a taxed bullpen. Ramirez has compiled a 2.48 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 32.2 innings in the New York bullpen this season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Sent down to Triple-A
The Yankees optioned Ramirez to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Friday's game.
A roster spot had to be freed up with Nestor Cortes (shoulder) returning Saturday. Ramirez has been highly effective with a 2.48 ERA so far this season, but he's going to be unavailable for a few days after covering 2.1 innings in Friday's loss to Houston, and the Yankees need all hands on deck over the remainder of the weekend. Expect Ramirez to be back with the club before too long.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Back in New York
The Yankees recalled Ramirez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.
With Ryan Weber (forearm) headed for the injured list, Ramirez will return to the Yankees' bullpen in his place. The 33-year-old lefty holds a 2.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through nine big-league innings this season, but his 5:4 K:BB ratio makes it unlikely he sees many high-leverage situations.... See More ...

Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Thursday's game against the Orioles.
Ramirez was recalled May 17 and has made three appearances since, allowing no earned runs across 2.2 frames.

He'll provide the Yankees with a fresh left-handed bullpen arm.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Headed to minors camp
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Ramirez has been reassigned to minor-league camp, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Ramirez, who had been attending camp as a non-roster invitee, made a spirited bid for a spot in the Yankees' Opening Day bullpen after holding opposing hitters to a .188 average while pitching to a 4.15 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB in 8.2 innings during Grapefruit League play. He'll be in line for an assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when the minor-league season opens next weekend.... See More ... See Less

Ramirez owns a 5.75 ERA in 20.1 major-league innings this season, the last of which came back in early July. His 5.23 ERA over 41.1 frames at the Triple-A level isn't much better. He'll exit the 40-man roster as the Padres add Vince Velasquez ahead of his scheduled start against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Ramirez: Activated, optioned
The Padres activated Ramirez (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A El Paso.
The transaction clears a spot on the active roster for infielder Adam Frazier, whom the team officially acquired Monday in a trade with the Pirates. Ramirez was placed on the IL on July 8 with left rotator cuff inflammation, but he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment at El Paso last week and appears to be fully healthy.... See More ...

Padres' Nick Ramirez: Slated to begin rehab assignment
Ramirez (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Ramirez has been on the 10-day injured list with left rotator cuff inflammation since July 8, but he could be nearing his return to the Padres. Since the southpaw serves as a reliever and has only been sidelined two weeks, he likely won't require a lengthy rehab stint before he's activated.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Ramirez: Lands on 10-day IL
Ramirez was placed on the 10-day injured list with left rotator cuff inflammation Thursday.
Ramirez was roughed up as a reliever in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, as he gave up five runs (four earned) on six hits and no walks while striking out one in two innings. His shoulder issue may have contributed to his struggles, and he'll now be sidelined through the All-Star break. It's not yet clear whether the southpaw will need to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the shelf, but he'll be eligible to return shortly after the break.... See More ... See Less

Ramirez (1-1) tossed 1.2 scoreless innings Friday against the Diamondbacks. He walked one and struck out one as he picked up his first win of the year.
Ramirez was called upon with one out and two runners in scoring position in the third after Chris Paddack got tagged for five runs in Friday's start. He got out of the jam and then went on to toss a 1-2-3 fourth inning before turning the ball over to Miguel Diaz. Friday was Ramirez's first outing since May 25 after he was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
