Yohan Ramirez picked up his third save of the season on Monday when he pitched 2/3 of an inning and walked one batter in the Mariners 8-4 win over the Rangers.
Ramirez entered the game in the top of the ninth with one out and the bases-loaded in an 8-3 ball game; Aaron Fletcher started the inning but allowed four of five batters he faced to reach base before being removed. Ramirez gave up a sacrifice fly, issued a walk, then got Elvis Andrus to pop out to end the game. If you're in need of saves and he's available in your league he's worth grabbing as soon as possible.
Yohan Ramirez picked up the save on Saturday, allowing one home run and recording one strikeout to shut the door on the Rangers 5-3.
Ramirez entered the game with the Mariners holding a 5-2 lead and promptly gave up a lead-off home run to Shin-Soo Choo before settling down and recording the next three outs via a line out, strike out, and fly out. He's received two save opportunities since the Mariners traded away former closer Taylor Williams at the deadline. He seems to have a hold on the role, for now, but that could change at any time. He's worth an add if you're in need of saves down the stretch. Ramirez now owns a 3.21 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and a 22:14 L/BB ratio over 14 innings.
Yohan Ramirez secured his first save of the year on Sunday when he struck out two and walked one over a scoreless 10th inning in the M's 2-1 extra-innings victory over the Angels.
The save was the first of the 25-year old's career. He whiffed Andrelton Simmons and Shohei Ohtani before intentionally walking Mike Trout. He got Anthony Rendon to pop out in the next at-bat to end the game. The right-hander now owns a 2.77 ERA with a 1.46 WHIP and a 21:14 K/BB ratio over 13 innings. He can be very wild at times but he's been gaining valuable experience for the rebuilding Mariners this season.
Yohan Ramirez made his MLB debut on Friday, striking out two and walking two in one inning.
Ramirez was able to show stuff fit for a capable reliever, while also struggling with control. He pitched one inning and struck out two hitters swinging, while also walking two batters. If he can manage to control the zone, he could wind up being an interesting piece in the Seattle bullpen.
