Marlins Injury Update: A.J. Ramos starts rehab assignment

By on 7/15/2014 10:30:00 AM

The Miami Marlins hit the All-Star break with a 44-50 record, fourth in the National League East. They are within reach of .500 due to an offense that is 12th in the Major Leagues in runs scored. For the Marlins to improve in the second half, they need more out of the staff which is 23rd in ERA. One pitcher which will help the bullpen in the second half is A.J. Ramos, who began a rehab assignment on Monday at Double-A Jacksonville.

Our own Darius Austin reported on July 2 that Ramos was placed on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. Although he was eligible to come off the disabled list on July 12, the Marlins opted to not activate him and sent him on a rehab assignment.

An update on Ramos, according to, was that he began his rehab assignment for the Jacksonville Suns last night. He started the game and threw one inning and allowed a run on two hits and struck out one. Of the 20 pitches he threw, 13 of them were strikes. He's expected to rejoin the Marlins following the All-Star break.

Ramos, a 27-year old reliever, is in his third Major League season.  Last season, he allowed only 58 hits in 80 innings and struck out 83, while walking 43. Although still having control problems this season, walking 29 in 37 1/3 innings, Ramos has an ERA of 2.17 and has allowed only 23 hits and one home run.  Ramos has a career record of 7-4 with a 2.91 ERA.
