Dodgers add former All-Star closer A.J. Ramos on minor-league deal

The Dodgers have added a former All-Star closer to their player pool.

The team reached agreement on a minor-league contract with right-hander A.J. Ramos. The deal is not official yet but Ramos is expected to join the Summer Camp workouts this weekend.

Ramos, 33, has not pitched in the major leagues since May 2018 and has spent the past two years recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum. He has been working out at his alma mater, Texas Tech, during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ramos spent parts of seven seasons with the Miami Marlins and New York Mets, posting a 3.07 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 10.5 strikeouts per nine innings. He collected 99 saves in 111 opportunities during the 2015-17 seasons and was selected for the All-Star team in 2016.

The Dodgers will begin official workouts for the postponed 2020 season on Friday. They announced 51 of the players in their 60-man pool earlier this week.
