Ramos signed a minor league contract with the Phillies that includes an invitation to spring training, the Morning Call's Stephen Gross reports. (1/11/2017)
The Rays Bullpen May Be the Best in Baseball

Ramos stayed on the Rays 2013 roster on the merit of his contract status (being out of option years), but he went ahead and posted a decent rates in a long-relief / LOOGY role. Ramos should stick on the roster again in 2014, but his fantasy value will again be next to nil. He collects innings, but his strikeout rate, holds and saves numbers do nothing to help a fantasy team. Entering his age-30 season, Ramos is a long shot to make rapid strides in his career, but in the world of relievers, you can never know. (
The Quick Opinion:
Ramos has a long-man / LOOGY role in the Rays bullpen, but his numbers simply aren't good enough to help a fantasy team.
Another successful graduate of the Tampa Bay bullpen academy, Cesar Ramos takes his left-handed reliever act on the road to Anaheim, where he'll serve as the top lefty out of Mike Scioscia's bullpen. He sits behind at least three pitchers previously designated as "save getters" so there isn't much hope for Ramos to collect much in that department, but he's a reliable reliever who can go multiple innings and even start in a pinch. Coming out of the 'pen helped Ramos manage his control a little better, walking fewer and striking out more as he streamlined his arsenal. As the sole lefty in the Angels bullpen, he will be called upon to face the toughest left-handed batters in the game, meaning lots of Robinson Cano, Seth Smith, and Prince Fielder in his future. But if it's holds you seek, the stacked Angels might provide Ramos more than his share of opportunities. (Drew Fairservice)
The Quick Opinion:
The newest, and only, lefty in the Angels bullpen should draw some tough assignments but Cesar Ramos can provide valuable innings as a Lefty One Out GuY or swingman.
Cesar Ramos is in one of the weirdest situations in baseball. Despite having an ERA under 3.00 in 2015, he couldn’t get more than a minor league deal on the open market. Even weirder, the deal with the Rangers includes plans to convert Ramos into a starter this spring, something the club has tried often with relievers. Ramos was a starter when he was selected 35th overall by the Padres all the way back in 2005, but he’s started in just 10 of his 251 major league appearances since. Seven of those starts came with the Rays in 2014, and they didn’t exactly go well -- 17 walks in 30-plus innings led to opponents having a .355 on-base percentage against Ramos. Perhaps Ramos is able to convince the Rangers that he’s worth an Opening Day rotation spot, but that’s highly unlikely; odds are he’ll open the year in the major league bullpen, or in the Triple-A rotation. Either way, there’s no fantasy value to be had. (Zach Sanders)
The Quick Opinion:
Cesar Ramos was an effective reliever last year, but he signed a minor league deal with the Rangers and will look to stretch himself out into a starter this spring. Either he’s a backend starter or a middle reliever -- not exactly fantasy material.
