Ramos is batting .297 with 14 homers and 53 RBIs but is on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. He'll upgrade an offense that has struggled during a four-game losing streak.
Ramos, who turns 31 next month, has a $10.5 million salary, and the Phillies will be responsible for the remaining $3,443,548. He has 315 plate appearances and can earn $250,000 each for 450, 475 and 500.
He is eligible for free agency after the World Series.
