The Angels have requested unconditional release waivers on right-hander Matt Ramsey, as per a team announcement (Twitter link). Ramsey was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.
Originally a 19th-round draft pick for the Rays in 2011, Ramsey finally made his Major League debut earlier this season, tossing a perfect inning of work to finish off an 11-5 Angels win over the Yankees on April 25. After that cup of coffee in the bigs, Ramsey was optioned back to Triple-A, where he has struggled to a 5.27 ERA and 5.3 BB/9 over 13 2/3 innings in 2019, albeit with a 9.9 K/9. Those numbers are a big step down from the otherwise solid work Ramsey has delivered in his minor league career — a 2.82 ERA, 10.8 K/9, and a 2.83 K/BB rate over 264 2/3 innings in five different organizations’ farm systems.
Matt Ramsey/Peter North. Lol
Wow that’s some old stuff man.
I’m sure Mr. North would like to forget Matt Ramsey
Well that was quick.
Get him O’s.
Why would they just release him? Unless he asked to be released to pursue an opportunity overseas or something I don’t see why you’d just let a guy who’s had a pretty decent amount of minor league success walk based one 15 bad innings.
Probably part of a bigger plan to try to get Kimbrel or keuchel since they don’t need draft comp anymore… anyways .. go grab em Shapiro lol
Yeah, Jays would definitely take a look.
Tigers are looking for cheap arms who can eat some innings. I would not be shocked to see him go to Detroit.
Goodnight sweet prince.
Welcome to the Nats
Id take him. Numbers in AAA inflated by 1 bad outing. Overall very nice middle reliever who can go multiple innings.
