A.J. Ramos converts save in latest win for surging Mets

With Jeurys Familia unavailable on Wednesday night, A.J. Ramos stepped up to record the final two outs of the Mets’ 4-1 victory over the Marlins. Ramos yielded one walk in his 2/3 innings of work, recording his first save of the season and 100th of his career.

Fantasy Impact

Ramos still has yet to allow an earned run this season (in 5 2/3 innings). He has a 0.88 WHIP and is a viable fantasy option for owners in holds leagues, particularly with the Mets playing well. In saves only leagues, Ramos remains nothing more than a handcuff for Jeurys Familia who should get a save opportunity every now and then when Familia is unavailable.

A.J. Ramos blows a save on Tuesday night

A.J. Ramos didn't look good on Tuesday night. Ramos blew a save after throwing just 2/3 of an inning. Ramos allowed three earned runs on five hits and one walk.

Fantasy Impact

Ramos was traded to the Mets earlier this season. His ERA is at 4.08 on the year, but is a solid bullpen pitcher. Don't add Ramos to your fantasy squad this year. He's potentially an add next year, based on certain categories in your league.

AJ Ramos saves the day on Wednesday

Entering with a 2-0 lead and the bases loaded in the ninth inning of Wednesday's game against the Reds, Ramos struck out both batters he faced, preserving Rafael Montero's shutout and earning his 26th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Ramos hasn't yet faltered since Jeurys Familia returned from the disabled list, and it's unclear whether the Mets intend to insert Familia back into the closer's role this season. For now, Ramos can be considered a low-end closer option, but one that will provide plenty of strikeouts when he gets the opportunity.

AJ Ramos converts messy save on Friday

AJ Ramos allowed one run on two hits and two walks on Friday night against the Nationals, but converted his 24th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Thankfully, Ramos had a little breathing room, as he entered the ninth inning with a three-run lead, but he still made it interesting. With Jeurys Familia back from the disabled list, Ramos' days as the Mets closer are likely numbered. For now, he remains a low-end closing option.

AJ Ramos with second save for Mets in 7-6 win over Phillies

AJ Ramos picked up his second save with the Mets on Friday working a clean ninth inning in the Mets' 7-6 win over the Phillies. Ramos struck out one in his lone inning of work. He now has 22 saves on the season against just two blown saves.

Fantasy Impact

This was Ramos' best appearance with his new team since being acquired before the July 31 no-waiver trade deadline. Ramos will serve to be a solid source for saves until the time Jeurys Familia returns from his stint on the DL (sometime in late-August) when it is presumed Ramos will move to a set-up role. That said, with the Mets out of contention, management may not try to rush Familia back, extending Ramos' fantasy value as a closer deep into September.
