Rays claim Ramon Ramirez off waivers
The Tampa Bay Rays have claimed right-handed pitcher Ramon Ramirez off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds.
Ramirez, 27, compiled a 3.65 ERA (12.1-IP, 5-ER) in 11 relief appearances for the Reds last season during two stints in the major leagues. He spent the remainder of the season with Louisville (AAA), where he went
6-7 with a 4.03 ERA in 20 starts and 11 relief appearances. In parts of two seasons in the majors (2008-09) he is 1-1 with a 2.97 ERA (39.1-IP, 13-ER) in 16 games (four starts) while holding opponents to a .184 (25-for-136) batting average.
A Venezuela native, Ramirez made three relief appearances in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. He spent the first three years of his career (2000-02) in the San Diego Padres organization before signing with Cincinnati as a minor league free agent on May 12, 2003.
