Ramos will be pushed off the 40-man roster to make room for Michael Mariot, who was selected from Triple-A on Saturday. Ramos is slashing an impressive .318/.404/.568 through 152 plate appearances in the minors, so other teams could be interested on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Activated and optioned
Ramos (hip) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and optioned to Triple-A Louisville.

Ramos (hip) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.
Ramos has been out for two weeks with a strained right hip. Prior to the injury, he hit a modest .242/.356/.306 in 18 games, so there's no guarantee he earns meaningful at-bats once he returns.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Sidelined with strained hip
Ramos was placed on the injured list with a strained hip Saturday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The injury may explain why Ramos found himself out of the lineup for the third time in four games, though his 85 wRC+ may sufficiently explain his lack of playing time on its own. His expected return date is unclear, and there's no guarantee he claims a starting role once he returns. Will Benson was recalled in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Sitting Saturday
Ramos will be on the bench Saturday against the Yankees.
Ramos had been featuring regularly at designated hitter and in the outfield corners but now finds himself sitting for the third time in four games. He's been getting on base well but showing minimal power, slashing .242/.356/.306, so it wouldn't be a surprise if his role continues to slip.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Day off Wednesday
Ramos will take a seat Wednesday versus the Rockies.
Ramos will remain on the bench for a second straight contest Wednesday after he went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in the series opener Monday.

Reds' Henry Ramos: Late add to lineup
Ramos was a late addition to Saturday's lineup against the White Sox, hitting fifth and manning left field.

Reds' Henry Ramos: Not in lineup
Ramos will sit Saturday against the White Sox.
Ramos had his contract selected in late April and started eight consecutive games, but he's since been on the bench for two of the last three.

Wil Myers returns from the COVID-19 injured list to start in right field, while Tyler Stephenson rests his legs as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Hits bench Wednesday
Ramos is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.
For the first time since he was promoted from Triple-A Louisville on April 24, Ramos will exit the Cincinnati lineup. While starting at either right field or designated hitter in each of the past eight games, Ramos slashed .310/.412/.379 with a 14.7 percent walk rate. Until his production at the plate dramatically tapers off, Ramos should find himself in the starting nine more often than not.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Handling regular role
Ramos will start in right field and bat fifth in Monday's game against the Padres.
Ramos has now picked up starts in each of the Reds' seven games since his April 24 call-up, and the 32-year-old has likely performed well enough to stick in the starting nine even if Wil Myers (illness) is able to return from the injured list later this week. While serving as a designated hitter or manning right field in his first six starts, Ramos has gone 9-for-22 with a triple, four walks, six runs and three RBI.... See More ... See Less

Ramos will serve as the Reds' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Monday's game against the Rangers.
The Reds won't waste any time breaking Ramos into the lineup for his first MLB action since 2021 after the 31-year-old switch-hitter had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville earlier Monday. Cincinnati designated Jason Vosler for assignment in a corresponding move, and Ramos could end up replacing him as a regular in the lineup versus right-handed pitching while the Reds await Joey Votto's (shoulder/biceps) eventual return from the injured list. Ramos was off to a strong start at Louisville, slashing .314/.400/.486 with two home runs and three stolen bases while striking out in just 12.2 percent of his 41 plate appearances.... See More ...

Reds' Henry Ramos: Reassigned to minor-league camp

This comes as a surprise as Ramos appeared to have earned a spot on the Opening Day roster after hitting .442 with two homers and a 1.228 OPS over 29 plate appearances. The outfielder will now likely head to Triple-A Louisville, and Cincinnati will need to add him to the 40-man roster in order to call him up to the major-league club.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Henry Ramos: Could win roster spot
Ramos, who played in the KBO last season, could win a roster spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Nick Senzel's slow progress in returning from the significant toe injury that ended his 2022 season essentially opens up a spot on the initial 26-man roster, most likely in the outfield if Wil Myers moves over to first base. Ramos been swinging a hot bat this spring, going 8-for-14 with three doubles and a 2:1 BB:K, and the Reds have had a tendency to let spring training performance guide how they fill out the back end of their roster in recent years, with varying results....
