Braves' Roel Ramirez: Heads to minors camp
Atlanta reassigned Ramirez to minor-league camp Wednesday.
The 27-year-old right-hander previously had brief cups of coffee in the majors with the Cardinals during the 2020 and 2021 seasons, but he was never viewed as a serious candidate to win a spot in Atlanta's Opening Day bullpen. Ramirez is expected to report to Triple-A Gwinnett to begin the 2023 campaign and will face an uphill battle to resurface in the big leagues while he doesn't occupy a spot on Atlanta's 40-man roster....

Braves' Roel Ramirez: Gets invite to big-league camp
Atlanta announced Wednesday that Ramirez will take part in big-league spring training as a non-roster invitee.
After opening the 2022 season in the Mexican League, Ramirez caught on with Atlanta last June on a minor-league deal. He pitched exclusively at Triple-A Gwinnett, logging a 4.91 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 22 innings while striking out 29. The 27-year-old right-hander, who previously made two big-league relief appearances, will get the chance to audition for a spot in Atlanta's Opening Day bullpen in spring training, but he'll most likely be reassigned to Gwinnett before the season gets underway....

Mets' Roel Ramirez: Clears waivers
The Mets outrighted Ramirez to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
Ramirez will remain in the organization after he cleared waivers when the Mets designated him for assignment Tuesday. New York claimed Ramirez off waivers from the Cardinals on July 21, but he never appeared in a game for the Mets before being booted off the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Roel Ramirez: Designated for assignment
Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Ramirez appeared in just one game for Triple-A Syracuse after being claimed off waivers by the Mets on July 21, allowing two runs in one inning July 25. He'll once again be placed on waivers, though it's very possible he'll go unclaimed, given his lack of success at any level this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Roel Ramirez: Claimed by Mets
Ramirez was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Ramirez was sent down by the Cardinals in early July, but he was apparently placed on outright waivers recently. The right-hander has been assigned to Triple-A Syracuse going forward. He made 19 starts at Triple-A Memphis earlier in the season and posted a 4.82 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 28 innings.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Sent down Saturday
Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
Ramirez made just one relief appearance during his time on the major-league roster, and he allowed three runs on one hit and two walks in a third of an inning. He'll head back to the Triple-A club after right-hander Justin Miller was claimed off waivers from the Nationals in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Contract selected Monday
Ramirez's contract was selected by the Cardinals on Monday.
Ramirez made his major-league debut last year but began the 2021 season with Triple-A Memphis. He made 17 relief appearances with the minor-league club and posted a 5.19 ERA and 27:8 K:BB in 26 innings. The right-hander is available to throw as many as 40-50 pitches in an outing, and manager Mike Shildt hasn't ruled out using Ramirez as an opener at some point, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports....

Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Clears waivers
Ramirez cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Cardinals' alternate training site Saturday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Ramirez will remain in the organization after being cast off the Cardinals' 40-man roster Monday. The right-hander had already been at the alternate training site before being designated for assignment, although he's unlikely to be included on the Cardinals' postseason roster.... See More ...

Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: DFA'd by St. Louis
Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Monday.
Ramirez was optioned to the Cardinals' alternate training site just over a month ago, and he'll now be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Dexter Fowler (not injury related), who was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday. The right-hander didn't fare very well in his major-league debut earlier this season, allowing six runs on six hits and one walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning.... See More ...

Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Optioned to alternate camp
Ramirez was optioned to the Cardinals' alternate training site Monday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Ramirez gave up four consecutive home runs as he was charged with the loss against the White Sox on Sunday, so it's not entirely surprising to see him return to alternate camp so he can sort things out. It's unclear whether the right-hander will return to the majors at some point during the 2020 season. The Cardinals added Nabil Crismatt to the active roster to take Ramirez's spot in the bullpen....

Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Gives up four straight homers
Ramirez surrendered six earned runs on six hits, including four consecutive home runs, a walk and a wild pitch over two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the White Sox on Sunday. He struck out one.
Ramirez became the first pitcher in major-league history to allow four consecutive home runs in a debut, with Yoan Moncada, Yasmani Grandal, Jose Abreu and Eloy Jimenez all doing the honors in the fifth inning. The right-hander had only three innings worth of experience at the Triple-A level in the minors, so Sunday's assignment represented a considerable step up in competition. Ramirez is likely to be optioned back down to the team's alternate training site as soon as the Cardinals get some reinforcements in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Joins 40-man, active rosters
Ramirez's contract was selected by the Cardinals on Wednesday.
Ramirez was at the alternate training site to begin the season, but he'll join the active roster to fill in amid the team's ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The right-hander has yet to make his major-league debut but posted a 4.78 ERA and 85:30 K:BB over 75.1 innings in the minors during the past two seasons. Ramirez has experience as both a starter and reliever in the minor leagues, and it's unclear what role he'll take on with the Cardinals' pitching staff.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Roel Ramirez: Heading to alternate camp
Ramirez was added to the Cardinals' 60-player roster pool and will report to the alternate training site in Springfield, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Ramirez was acquired by the Cardinals from the Rays in July 2018 as part of the prospect package for Tommy Pham, and he spent most of 2019 at Double-A Springfield. The 25-year-old had a 4.98 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 80:29 K:BB across 72.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
