Erasmo Ramírez (born April 29, 1976) is an American former professional baseball relief pitcher. He played in Major League Baseball for the Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics, and Florida Marlins.

The Chris Magruder for Andrés Galarraga on July 24, 2001.

Ramirez made his major league debut with the Texas Rangers in 2003. That season, he compiled a 3-1 record with 3.86 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 49 innings pitched and allowed just 9 walks. He would play part of the 2004 and 2005 seasons with the Rangers big league club.

In 2006, after the Rangers had signed more relievers, they optioned Ramirez to the Oklahoma Redhawks, their Pacific Coast League Triple-A affiliate. He would spend the whole 2006 season with the Redhawks and became a free agent after the season.

On November 20, 2006, the Oakland Athletics signed Ramirez to a minor league contract. He began the 2007 season with their Triple-A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats, and was promoted to the big league club on May 25.

He played three games for the Athletics including an 18-day stretch in which he did not play at all. The Athletics then designated Ramirez for assignment on June 16, 2007, and Ramirez became a free agent afterwards. The Florida Marlins then signed him on June 20, and assigned him to Triple-A Albuquerque of the Pacific Coast League.

On July 2, 2007, Ramirez had his contract purchased by the Marlins and returned to the major leagues. He played just four games for the Marlins and was designated for assignment on July 13, 2007, and was outrighted to Triple-A five days later on July 18. Ramirez signed a minor league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers in January 2008. He became a free agent after the season and signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox.

Ramirez has excellent control of his pitches and does not walk a lot of batters. He walked just 1.74 batters per 9 innings in 114 major league innings.
