Season Recap: Edubray Ramos

Edubray Ramos was a solid bullpen piece in 2017. Oh, his 4.21 ERA wasn't fantastic. But his other numbers belied a much better season.

In the coming days, we're going to recap every player who spent a part of  2017 with the Philadelphia Phillies. The previous post looked at first baseman Brock Stassi. We even have a landing post with a link to each player's season.

Ramos had a 2.92 FIP, allowed just four home runs in 57 innings, struck out more than 11 batters per nine innings and, despite a high walk rate per nine innings, a huge discrepancy between his strikeout rate and walk rate.

Ramos struggled through a brutal stretch in July, giving up nine of the 29 runs he gave up all season in a span of just eight days. If you take away that week, he had a 3.20 ERA on the season. 

Expect a third straight solid season from Ramos in 2018, particularly since the Phillies should have a deeper pen that will put him in lower leverage situations.

Cut back on the walks and he’s a solid setup option.
