The Giants have designated Ramon Ramirez for assignment, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. The Giants have ten days to trade or waive Ramirez and chances are he’ll be outrighted to Triple-A Fresno.
Ramirez, 31, saw just 5 and 2/3 innings of work this year for the Giants. For his career, Ramirez owns a 3.42 ERA with 7.5 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9 across parts of eight big league campaigns.
The move will allow San Francisco to promote 24-year-old right-hander Jake Dunning who has posted a 1.75 ERA with 7.8 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 in 23 games for the club's Triple-A affiliate.
