When the Mariners designated Jeremy Bonderman for assignment earlier this week the assumption was they’d add Erasmo Ramirez to the rotation as his replacement and sure enough they made the move official today.

Ramirez is coming up from Triple-A to start this afternoon against the Red Sox, returning to the majors for the first time this season after pitching very well in a 59-inning debut last year.

Ramirez had a 3.09 ERA and 42/14 K/BB ratio in 44 innings at Triple-A as a 23-year-old. He made eight starts and eight relief appearances for the Mariners last season, throwing 59 innings with a 3.36 ERA and 48/12 K/BB ratio.

    Walker,Hultzen, Paxton in the wings, Jack is slowly, surely setting up to dominate the late 20 teens.

      What? Hultzen and Paxton are hardly considered big time prospects anymore. Z has been horrible for the Mariners. So many top 5 picks and so little to show for it.
