Marlins | A.J. Ramos navigates through tough save

Tue, 31 May 2016 22:28:12 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos picked up his 16th save of the season Tuesday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but it was anything but easy. Ramos loaded the bases in the ninth inning with nobody out, but was ultimately able to escape the jam and close it out. He ended up allowing one run on one hit and two walks, while striking out one.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos was not only fortunate to keep Miami in front, but also in keeping his own perfect record intact as well. In particular, Gregory Polanco was just a few feet from lacing a grand slam on a fly ball to deep center field. The 29-year-old has converted every one of his 16 save opportunities, though there have been times where he would get himself into trouble before escaping. Even so, he's clearly been an elite closer this season and is on pace for an All-Star berth.

Mon, 16 May 2016 20:51:55 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos allowed one run in his one inning against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, May 16, but was able to record his 12th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos has allowed a run in two of his last five appearances but has not blown a save this season. Ramos should be a starting option in mixed leagues because he should have plenty of save changes moving forward.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos unscathed

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:52:45 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos nailed down his fourth save Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: He has yet to allow an earned run and has given up just two hits in seven frames. His five walks aren't great, but three of them came in his first outing. He has nine strikeouts in those seven innings, and he's a legit RP1 right now.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos makes spring debut

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 15:52:42 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos (calf) made his spring training debut Wednesday, March 16, and fired a perfect ninth inning against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: That's great news for the Marlins and his fantasy owners, as Ramos is fully set to resume his closing duties after Carter Capps (elbow) went down for the season. After years of exhibiting potential to close, Ramos was terrific in his first go-around with the job, saving 32 ballgames in 38 chances, while registering an outstanding 2.30 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. Furthermore, he also racked up 87 Ks in 70 1/3 innings pitched. He has a good chance of being an upper echelon closer in 2016.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos is ready

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 10:33:16 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos (calf) had dealt with a sore calf early this spring, but he's now ready to pitch in Grapefruit League games. He's no longer on any medical lists.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos now doesn't have much competition for the closing job in 2016 after Carter Capps went down with a season-ending injury. Ramos can be dominant in the role, but his control and homer allowance can be issues, which make him more of a second or third fantasy stopper.

Marlins | Miami closer's job up for grabs

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 07:27:08 -0800

The Miami Marlins are expected to have an open competition for the closer job, with RP Carter Capps having an opportunity to win the job away from incumbent CL A.J. Ramos, according to general manager Michael Hill.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos went 2-4 with a 2.30 ERA and 32 saves in 71 games last season, while striking out 87 batters in 70 1/3 innings, and should still be considered the favorite to close games for the Fish. Capps went 1-0 with a 1.16 ERA in 30 appearances in 2015, with 58 strikeouts in 31 innings. Despite the eye-popping K/9 rate, Capps has never saved a game at the major league level. Both pitchers should be monitored throughout spring training, especially in NL-only leagues. The Marlins had also expressed interest in free-agent RP Fernando Rodney, who has prior closing experience, before he signed with the San Diego Padres.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 12:28:30 -0800

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos re-signed a one-year, $3.4 million contract to avoid arbitration Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos took over the closer role in mid-May and went on to record 32 saves last season, and he projects to start 2016 with the job. He returned a respectable 2.30 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 11.1 K/9 ratio line, too. Ramos is a mid-range closer who is worth targeting as a No. 2 closer for your fantasy club.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos drawing interest

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 14:10:09 -0800

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos is reportedly attracting trade interest at the winter meetings, with multiple teams checking in on his availability.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be much of a surprise at all, as seemingly everyone on the Marlins is available to some extent every winter. Ramos did an excellent job after taking over the closer's role in May, ultimately finishing with 32 saves in 38 chances, not to mention while recording a 2.30 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and .184 opposing batting average. If he does go somewhere, as long as he's closing, Ramos should continue to be a hot commodity in fantasy.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos notches 11th save

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 19:54:00 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos struck out a single batter without allowing a base runner to record his 11th save of the season during the Marlins' 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos has a solid 1.30 ERA, 1.89 FIP, 0.78 WHIP and 11.4 K/9 over 34 2/3 innings, and he is 11 for 12 in save opportunities. Continue to view him as a mid-tier closer until he proves otherwise. Ramos also appears to have a firm grip on the ninth inning for Miami.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos pitches out of jam

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 19:12:08 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos recorded his fifth save during the Marlins' 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, June 2. Ramos allowed two hits and a walk but held the Cubs off the scoreboard and recorded a strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Since taking over the closer role Wednesday, May 13, Ramos has allowed a single earned run over 9 1/3 innings pitched and struck out 13 batters. He doesn't own an overpowering pitching arsenal, but so far this season, retiring batters and limiting opponents hasn't been a problem. Until he proves otherwise, Ramos appears locked into the ninth-inning role.
