The Los Angeles Angels have claimed 27-year old righty reliever J.C. Ramirez off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. Ramirez pitched in 27 games (0 starts) for the Reds this year and he was 1-3 with 1 save, a 6.40 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. He gave up 35 hits (7 homers) and 9 walks while whiffing 28 batters in his 32 1/3 innings pitched for the Reds…so he got hit pretty hard. Ramirez has now pitched in 65 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the show and he is 2-6 with 1 save, a 6.41 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. This is a case of the Angels taking a flier on a pitcher with good stuff.
