According to Rob Bradford of WEEI, the Red Sox have claimed pitcher Ramon A. Ramirez off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays. Ramirez was originally claimed off waivers by the Rays earlier this offseason from the Cincinnati Reds. The Red Sox will find out Wednesday if they have been awarded the claim placed on Ramirez.

In parts of two major league seasons with the Reds, the 27-year-old appeared in 16 games and posted a 2.97 ERA in 39.1 innings pitched. Working primarily as a starter in the Reds minor league system, he compiled a 35-36 record with a 3.91 ERA in 645.1 innings pitched averaging 7.9 strikeouts per nine innings.

Update: The Red Sox have been awarded the claim on Ramirez, he is now an official member of the team.
