Erasmo Ramirez will have a chance to rejoin the Mariners if needed when the club opens a nine-day, 10-game road trip at the conclusion of this weekend's home series.
Desperate times call for desperate measures? Something like that. In truth, Ramirez does have some nice upside, but he's having some trouble putting it all together here in the early years of a budding career. He should continue getting chances to prove himself as the Mariners see something in him that apparently hitters don't but that's what makes the world go 'round. Ramirez has to spend a full week in the minors before he can be recalled again, so if/when he does get the call, it will be towards the middle to the end of the road trip.
