Mike Berardino of the Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that the Minnesota Twins have outrighted relief pitcher Neil Ramirez after his incredibly short and incredibly difficult tenure with the team. Minnesota had picked up Ramirez off of waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers last month, and in 14.2 relief innings for the Twins, Ramirez gave up five home […] The post Twins outright...

The Cubs have a Neil Ramirez problem. After crushing the competition in 2014, to the tune of 43 2/3 innings pitched, a 1.44 ERA, 2.61 FIP, and 10.9 K/9 with 3.5 BB/9, Ramirez fell off in 2015 due to problems with his throwing shoulder. His average fastball velocity, which was 95.4 MPH in 2014, dropped […]

Neil Ramirez was placed on the 15 day DL with sore triceps yesterday and I only have a few words (a few more than I’ve had in awhile). People need to relax on Neil Ramirez. I just spoke with him and he said it is simply to give his arm a rest. Very important part of Cubs. — David Kaplan (@thekapman) July 26, 2014 There you have it. Very important part of Cubs to rest players...
Did the Cubs Win? Nope. Dropped two of three to the Cardinals this weekend. Huh? The Cubs sent Neil Ramirez to Iowa over the weekend, citing the need to rest his arm, which strikes me as extremely odd. Ramirez has been arguably the best reliever on the team, but had not been overused by anyone’s definition of the word. I can’t remember another example of a team limiting a reliever’s...
In an interesting move this afternoon before game time, the Chicago Cubs optioned fireballing relief pitcher Neil Ramirez back to Iowa and recalled Blake Parker. #Cubs option Ramirez to Iowa. Blake Parker recalled. Not performance related but gives Ramirez a breather — Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat) July 26, 2014 With Carrie Muskat saying that the demotion of Ramirez is not...
