According to a report, the Dodgers inked right-handed pitcher Yefry Ramirez to a minor league deal on Friday. Ramirez spent the 2021 season in the LA organization, making 22 starts and 3 relief appearances with Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 28-year-old also tossed one relief outing with the big league club, a two inning scoreless outing in August.
He was designated for assignment after the Dodgers signed former All-Star left-hander Cole Hamels in a deal that crashed and burned mightily.
Ramirez made his MLB debut with the Orioles back in 2018 and picked up cups of coffee with the Pirates and Dodgers as a big leaguer. He’s posted a 6.19 ERA over 91.2 innings pitched at the highest level. Over his minor league career, things have gone a little better for the native of Sanot Domingo in the Dominican Republic. He’s gone 46-40 with a 3.80 ERA over 718 IP.
While Ramirez shouldn’t figure too highly in LA’s plans for 2022, he represents a solid depth piece at the AAA level in an emergency.
