#142: Ramirez Returns To Mariners Rotation

Toronto is the last team the Mariners will face in 2012 that is not in contention for a playoff berth. The Mariners and Blue Jays start a three-game set Tuesday.

GAME: Mariners (67-73, 4th, AL West, – 16.5 GB) at Blue Jays (64-75, 4th, AL East, – 14.5 GB). GAME #: 142. SERIES: 1st of 3 games. MEETING: 7th (Mariners lead 4-2). WHEN: Tuesday, 4:05 p.m., Rogers Center, Toronto. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (Seattle, 0-2, 3.69) vs. RHP Brandon Morrow (Toronto, 8-5, 2.94). STREAKS: Mariners L 3; Blue Jays W 4. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: ESPN 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network

When the Mariners made their September call-ups, manager Eric Wedge promised that he would make room for Erasmo Ramirez and Hector Noesi to get at least one start each before the end of the season. Ramirez gets his shot Tuesday, when the Mariners open a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Center.

Ramirez might have remained in Seattle’s rotation all season after the club demoted Blake Beavan to AAA Tacoma in June. But in a June 30 game against Boston, Ramirez had to leave with an elbow injury in the third inning. When he recovered, the Mariners sent him to Tacoma, and he remained there until the Mariners recalled him earlier this month.

Raimirez will oppose a familiar figure, Brandon Morrow, Seattle’s first-round draft pick in 2006. Morrow didn’t impress Mariners’ GM Jack Zduriencik, who traded him to Toronto, effectively for Brandon League, now gone. But Morrow has been tough on the Mariners since the trade. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (0-2, 3.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP)

Erasmo Ramirez

The 22-year-old Ramirez, in his first major league season, will make his fifth start, his first since his recall from AAA Tacoma, and his first against the Blue Jays. Ramirez appeared against Toronto in a relief role April 27 and did not factor in Seattle’s 9-5 victory.

A native of Rivas, Nicaragua, the 5-11, 205-pound Ramirez came to the Mariners in 2007 as an amateur free agent. He began his professional career in 2008 with the Mariners entry in the Venezuelan summer league. He also pitched for the club in 2009, posting an 11-1 record.

That earned him a promotion to Class A Clinton of the Midwest League in 2010, when he went 10-4. Ramirez pitched for AA Jackson and AAA Tacoma in 2011. He went a combined 10-8.

Ramirez made his major league debut April 9, working in relief of Hector Noesi in an 11-9 Texas win over Seattle at Rangers Ballpark. He pitched 3.0 innings and allowed one run on two hits and surrendered a home run. He did not factor in the decision.

After allowing earned runs in each of his first three appearances, he did not allow any in his last four. The Mariners had seen enough to send him down to Tacoma in order to build him back into a starter. When the Mariners had seen enough of Blake Beavan’s troubles, they farmed him out and recalled Ramirez June 12.

During Ramirez’s June 30 start against Boston, Ramirez suffered a right flexor elbow strain and had to come out of the game. The Mariners subsequently placed him on the 15-day disabled list. When he was healthy enough to pitch, he was sent to Tacoma. In 15 starts for the Rainiers, Ramirez went 6-3, 3.72. Ramirez worked one inning of relief against Oakland Sept. 7.

  • LAST START: June 30 vs. Boston, took a no-decision in Seattle’s 3-2 victory; no runs, no hits in 2.2 innings; two strikeouts, no walks; 41 pitches, 24 for strikes.
  • LAST VS. BLUE JAYS: April 27, worked 0.2 innings of relief in Seattle’s 9-5 victory; did not allow a hit or a run facing just three batters.
  • CAREER VS. BLUE JAYS: See above.
  • AT ROGERS CENTER: See above.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Ramirez has faced four Blue Jays. None have a hit.

Ramirez / 2012

  • June 14 (L, 0-1): Vs. San Diego at Safeco Field, lost 6-2; allowed five earned runs on eight hits in 5.0 innings; struck out three and walked one; threw 93 pitches, 64 for strikes.
  • June 19 (ND, 0-1): In Phoenix, took a no-decision in 12-9 win; allowed four earned runs on five hits over 4.0 innings; struck out five and walked one; two home runs.
  • June 25 (L, 0-2): vs. Oakland at Safeco Field, lost 1-0; allowed one earned run on three hits over 8.0 innings and struck out a career-high 10.
  • June 30 (ND, 0-2): vs. Boston, took a no-decision in Seattle’s 3-2 victory; no runs, no hits in 2.2 innings; two strikeouts, no walks; 41 pitches, 24 for strikes.

BLUE JAYS: RHP Brandon Morrow (8-5, 2.94 ERA, 1.03 WHIP)

Brandon Morrow

The 27-year-old Morrow, in his sixth major league season and third with Toronto, will make his 17th start and second against the Mariners. Morrow blanked Seattle 7-0 at the Rogers Center April 28 and is coming off a no-decision in Toronto’s 6-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles Sept. 5.

A native of Santa Rosa, CA., 6-3, 200-pound Morrow made All-America at the University of California and was a first-round selection (fifth overall pick) by the Seattle Mariners in the 2006 amateur draft.

Morrow began his pro career in the Mariners’ system at Arizona (Rookie League) in 2006 and advanced to Inland Empire (2006) before making his major league debut April 3, 2007, against Oakland. Morrow pitched 1.0 innings and received a no-decision.

Morrow worked strictly in relief in his first year (60 appearances) and began the transformation into a starting pitcher in 2008. But the Mariners never could figure out whether Morrow was best suited to start or relieve.

In 131 games with Seattle, Morrow made 15 starts. During his time with the Mariners, he went 8-12, 3.96.

On Dec. 23, 2009, the Mariners traded Morrow to the Blue Jays for Johermyn Chavez (minors) and Brandon League. Neither player remains with the Mariners. Morrow has been a full-time starter since the trade. He went 10-7, 4.49 in 2010 and 11-11, 3.79 in 2011.

Morrow spent two months on the disabled list (returned in August) with a torn muscle in his side. He will bring a career record of 37-35, 4.15 ERA into Tuesday’s game at the Rogers Center.

  • 2012: Morrow has pitched into the seventh inning in eight of his starts and has three shutouts to his credit: 5-0 over the Angels May 3, 2-0 over the Mets May 19 and 4-0 over the White Sox June 6. Since coming off the disabled list he has a win, loss and no-decision.
  • LAST START: Sept. 5 vs. Baltimore, took a no-decision in Toronto’s 6-4 win over the Orioles; two earned runs on three hits over 6.0 innings; six strikeouts to three walks, one home run.
  • LAST VS. MARINERS: April 28 at Toronto, won 7-0; five hits in 6.0 innings; nine strikeouts to no walks; 104 pitches, 66 for strikes.
  • CAREER VS. MARINERS: 3-0, 1.89 ERA in three starts covering 19.0 innings; 28 strikeouts to five walks; 13.3 strikeouts per nine innings; no home runs.
  • AT ROGERS CENTER: 17-12, 4.30 ERA in 43 games, including 38 starts, covering 230.1 innings; 258 strikeouts to 78 walks; 10.1 strikeouts per nine innings; 24 home runs.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES

  • April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
  • April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
  • April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.

  • June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.
  • June 18: Aaron Hill of Arizona hit for the cycle in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first (Hector Noesi), tripled in the third (Noesi), doubled in the fifth (Noesi) and homered in the seventh (Shawn Kelley).
  • June 19: Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history during a 12-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. His 2,500th hit came in his 1,817th game. Al Simmons had 2,500 hits in 1,784 games, Ty Cobb in 1,790 and George Sisler in 1,808 . . . When Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan both hit three-run homers in the fifth inning, it marked the first time since July 30, 2003 vs. Detroit that the Mariners had a pair of three-run bombs in the same inning.

  • July 1: One-time Mariner farmhand David Ortiz of the Red Sox hit a sacrifice fly in the top of the 10th inning, giving Boston a 2-1 win over the Mariners.

  • Aug. 15: Felix Hernandez threw the 23rd perfect game in major league history, defeating Tampa Bay 1-0 at Safeco Field. Hernandez recorded 12 strikeouts in throwing the third no-hitter in franchise history . . . Mariners became the first team in MLB history to throw a perfect game and have one thrown against them. It was also the first time two have been thrown in the same stadium in one season . . . Of the 22 previous perfect games, six were by 1-0 scores, the last by Roy Halladay May 29, 2010 at Florida. It was also the fourth 1-0 win for the Mariners this season . . .Hernandez became the second Latin American pitcher to do the deed (Nicaragua’s Dennis Martinez for Montreal July 28, 1991, against the Dodgers).
