Ramon Ramirez

  1. Giants release Ramon Ramirez and Wilson Valdez

    Ramon Ramirez

    San Francisco released a pair of players who had opt-out clauses in their minor-league contracts, cutting loose reliever Ramon Ramirez and infielder Wilson Valdez. Valdez is a pretty typical utility infielder–although for a brief, hilarious time some Phillies fans loved him–but Ramirez has actually been a solid reliever with a 3.32 ERA in 438 career…

  2. Ramon Ramirez is back with the Giants, joining Angel Pagan and Andres Torres

    Ramon Ramirez

    Last offseason the Giants traded outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Mets for outfielder Angel Pagan. And now they have all three players. Pagan re-signed with the Giants for $40 million over four years, they signed Torres to a one-year, $2 million deal in December, and now Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports…

  3. Bargain-hunting Rays still have some holes

    Joe Maddon, Andrew Friedman

    The Rays have spent some money this winter, adding Yunel Escobar for shortstop, James Loney for first base and Roberto Hernandez to the pitching staff. Their rotation is fine even with James Shields gone and the infield might be set, if Ben Zobrist plays second base, but the team still has some needs as is.…

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

  5. Angel Pagan goes from fringe regular to $40 million player

    Dec 3, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Angel Pagan

    The Mets were strongly considering non-tendering Angel Pagan rather than pay him $5 million or so for 2012. Instead, they found a taker for him in the Giants, who sent back fellow center fielder Andres Torres and right-hander Ramon Ramirez. It proved to be a great deal for San Francisco, as Pagan proved key in…

    I would have preferred to have posted this last week, but here’s the remainder of the updated top 111 free agents column. In case you missed it, the top 50 was posted last Friday. Players in the top 111 are ranked based not on how I view them, but more on how I believe teams…

  7. Mets to non-tender Mike Pelfrey, perhaps Andres Torres

    Oct 22, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Andres Torres

    The New York Post’s Mike Puma was told by a “Mets person” that the team plans to non-tender right-hander Mike Pelfrey, but will try to re-sign him as a free agent. A decision on whether to tender outfielder Andres Torres hasn’t been made. Pelfrey underwent Tommy John surgery in May and is unlikely to be…

  8. Slumping Mets have little to sell

    Stephen Strasburg made easy work of the Mets lineup on Wednesday, racking up 11 strikeouts while throwing just 94 pitches in seven innings, and the Nationals won 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep in New York. It was the second straight series in which the Mets have been swept. They’re 1-11 since the All-Star break…

  9. Aubrey Huff lands on DL after perfect game celebration

    Jun 15, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Aubrey Huff

    The unforeseen consqeunce of the rise of no-hitters and perfect games throughout baseball; the simultaneous rise of celebration-related injuries. Two weeks after Mets reliever Ramon Ramirez was hurt following Johan Santana’s no-hitter, Aubrey Huff has joined him on the disabled list with a knee injury sustained celebrating Matt Cain’s perfect game Wednesday night. An MRI…

    UPDATE: Adam Rubin of ESPN New York was told by two people that it was Ramon Ramirez, not Elvin Ramirez, who got hurt in the no-hitter celebration. Sounds like Joel Sherman’s source mixed up his Ramirezes. 3:02 PM: Mike Baxter wasn’t the only casualty in Johan Santana‘s no-hitter last night. Apparently the newest member of…

  12. Running down the rosters: New York Mets

    Feb 22, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Jason Bay, David Wright

    As depressing as all things Mets have been lately, the team on the field still finished a respectable 77-85 last season. Unfortunately, it seems likely that things will get worse before they get better. Rotation Johan Santana – L R.A. Dickey – R Mike Pelfrey – R Jon Niese – L Dillon Gee – R…

  13. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Coming off a disappointing 86-76 finish in 2011, the Giants’ big moves this winter were a pair of underwhelming trades: Jonathan Sanchez for Melky Cabrera and Andres Torres plus Ramon Ramirez for Angel Pagan. To say the least, they didn’t make the kind of splash their fans were hoping for (but have come not to…

  14. Giants and Angel Pagan avoid arbitration with one-year, $4.85 million deal

    Jan 16, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v New York Mets

    According to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press, the Giants and outfielder Angel Pagan have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.85 million contract. The deal includes $150,000 in incentives based on plate appearances. Pagan, who was arbitration-eligible for the final time this offseason, made $3.5 million with the Mets in 2011 while batting…

  15. The Dodgers have interest in Daniel Muprhy

    Dec 10, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Daniel Murphy

    Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti mentioned during the Winter Meetings that he was working on a deal to add another infielder capable of playing multiple positions.

  16. Mets sign Frank Francisco for two years, $12 million

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:04 PM EDT

    Frank Francisco

    10:15 p.m. EST update: Gulp. FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi states that the deal is worth $12 million over two years. Apparently, the Mets didn’t get the note that there are more closers available than teams needing them. 10:10 p.m. EST update: Jon Heyman confirms the original report from Newsday’s Ken Davidoff. No word on terms…

  18. Giants looking to trade, but not Tim Lincecum

    Dec 6, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    GM Brian Sabean said Tuesday that even if Tim Lincecum proves unwilling to a long-term deal this winter, the Giants won’t weigh trading the two-time Cy Young Award winner. Lincecum has long figured he could make more money going short-term with the Giants than he could with a longer deal, though he did sign a…

  19. The Giants are looking to trade Ramon Ramirez or Jeremy Affeldt

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Ramon Ramirez

    Rosenthal says that the Giants are trying to trade either Ramon Ramirez or Jeremy Affeldt. He says it’s for payroll space and flexibility. Which makes one wonder why in the hell they picked up Affeldt’s $5 million option after the season was over, but I suppose that’s between Brian Sabean and his god. Ramirez would be…
