Ramirez allowed one run on four hits, walking one and striking out five over six innings of a 4-1 win against Houston on Friday night.

Ramirez (8-3, 3.63 ERA) has put together a couple of strong outings since missing a start with a sore groin in late June. With Tampa Bay getting healthier on the mound, it was speculated that he might be ticketed for the bullpen, but his recent success might be making that a tough decision to make, at least over the short term.

Ramirez took the loss despite allowing just one run on two hits over 5.2 innings Tuesday against Cleveland. He struck out seven and walked just one.

Ramirez missed his last start due to a groin injury and has gone over 100 pitches just once this year, so the Rays pulled him after just 84 pitches despite his success. Ramirez tied a season high in strikeouts set May 30 and lowered his ERA to 4.01. He may be pushed to the bullpen when Matt Moore returns, but he's been solid enough to make the Rays at least think about leaving him in the rotation.

Ramirez (groin) will get the start Tuesday against Cleveland, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports.

All signs have pointed to Ramirez's return to the rotation since he tossed a bullpen session on Friday without any incident. He's sporting a 6-2 record, but a 4.23 ERA is something he'll look to improve upon when he makes the start Tuesday.

Ramirez said he felt no pain after his Friday bullpen session and could rejoin the rotation Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

That should be all the confirmation we need to fully expect Ramirez starting Tuesday. This was expected once Ramirez missed his Tuesday bullpen session, which led to him being scratched from his Friday start. Since the Rays had an off day Thursday, they just pushed every member of the rotation up one day instead of giving them an extra day of rest. Ramirez could be a candidate to leave the rotation once Matt Moore returns, so a good start would be encouraging for his long-term value.
