Ramirez is not starting Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Adam Rosales will start at shortstop and hit eighth, giving Ramirez the day off. Ramirez is posting a poor .240 batting average for the season, but has gone 6-for-20 (.300) with a rare home run over the last seven games.

Ramirez is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Nick Noonan was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, leaving Ramirez as the starting shortstop, at least until rosters expand in September. It has been a rough year for Ramirez, but for those looking for cheap counting stats at shortstop on the waiver wire, he makes for a serviceable option, especially if the trend of him leading off continues.

Ramirez, getting the start as the DH, went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop has found starts hard to come by since the trade deadline, starting just four games this month. However, Ramirez has a hit in each one of those starts, including two of his five home runs this season. The Padres have nothing to play for, which doesn't bode well for Ramirez's playing time, but if given the opportunity he may be able to provide a little pop from the shortstop position the rest of the season.

Ramirez may be at risk of losing playing time to the 22-year-old Jose Rondon in the short term, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez is just one of the San Diego infielders whose playing time is at risk, but manager Andy Green has made it known that he plans to utilize Rondon as long as he is with the team. The Padres know what they're getting out of Ramirez, a nine-year veteran, but after clearly declaring as sellers leading up to Monday's trade deadline, the team now seems to be leaning towards evaluating their young talent. There hasn't been a clear indication whether or not Rondon is with the club to stay, but as long as he's on the 25-man roster, no infielder's playing time is 100 percent secure.

Ramirez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez is in the middle of an awful hitting slump after going just 1-for-23 over the last seven days. Jose Rondon will start at shortstop against the right-handed Homer Bailey.

Ramirez is not in the lineup for game one of Wednesday's doubleheader against St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

With two games in a day, getting rest in the afternoon doesn't mean Ramirez won't play at night. For the day game, Alexi Amarista will take over at shortstop and hit eighth.

Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a double and RBI in Thursday's 6-0 victory over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday's outing doubled Ramirez's hit total for the Month of June, bringing him to 4-for-27 across seven games. His recent struggles have brought his batting average and on-base percentage down to .240 and .272, respectively. Apart from occasional (and short) bursts where he'll post a multi-hit game or two, Ramirez is unlikely to become a regular contributor to the Padres' mediocre offense.

Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two homers, five RBI and three runs against the Mariners on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Apparently San Diego isn't such a bad place to hit after all, as nearly all the Padres had the offensive fever in this one. Ramirez has been on a little surge over the last seven games, hitting .367 (11-for-30) with all three of his 2016 homers and eight RBI in that span, but the 34-year-old shortstop is unlikely to start reliving his glory days anytime soon. He's best left for NL-only formats.

Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a home run and a strikeout Sunday against Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop is not known for his power, but he can go yard from time to time as evidenced by today's fifth-inning blast to center field. The homer might be what he needs to get out of his slump, as he's gone 6-for-35 (.171) over the past 11 games.

Ramirez will start and bat seventh for Monday's game against San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez did not start Sunday's game against Los Angeles but is back in the lineup, starting at shortstop Monday against San Francisco. The 34-year-old is currently in the midst of a May-slump as he's batting 12-for-67 (.179) this month with an unsightly .211 OBP. Maybe Sunday's game off will help Ramirez begin to right the ship as he faces off against Drew Pomeranz for the Giants.
