Erasmo Ramirez Pitches Four Shutout Frames

Erasmo Ramirez was dealing on Wednesday afternoon against the Oakland A’s. Ramirez allowed just two base runners across four shutout innings today. Ramirez did a good job locating his pitches, and recorded two strikeouts. The 24-year-old right-hander has now started three games for the M’s this spring, and has allowed just 2 earned runs over the course of 9 innings pitched.

Erasmo Ramirez is currently competing for the final spot in the Seattle Mariners’ starting rotation. Ramirez has improved every time he has stepped on the mound this month, and Wednesday’s outing was by far his best. Taijuan Walker is still the heavy favorite to land the fifth starter gig, but Ramirez is pitching well this spring, and may find his way into the Mariners’ bullpen to start the season.
