Mets Put SS Cabrera on DL, Sign RHP Neil Ramirez for Bullpen

Mets Put SS Cabrera on DL, Sign RHP Neil Ramirez for Bullpen

The switch-hitting ceremonial helmet remover and all-around likable player, who helped carry the Mets through the 2016 season, had dealt with a hamstring issue and then injured his thumb.

"We throw out a lot of stuff, and ultimately they've got to make pitches", Collins said.

Ramirez, a former first-round draft pick who turns 28 later this month, was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays last week. The right-hander has surely made his rounds early on in 2017 while Ramirez most recently became a free agent after declining his outright assignment with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Saudi Arabia counting down the seconds until Trump arrives
Saudi leaders felt Obama was reluctant to get involved in the civil war in Syria and was tilting toward Shiite-dominated Iran. McMaster said that the speech is aimed at uniting the broader Muslim world against the common enemies of all civilisation.

The Mets will be the sixth team for Ramirez, 27, over the past two seasons.

NY relievers have given up seven homers in the past five games and compiled a 13.80 ERA over 15 innings. He pitched for the Cubs, Brewers and Twins last season and has a 3.72 ERA over four seasons. He has held right-handed hitters to a.218 batting average during his career.

Cabrera has played 33 games this season, hitting.257 with three home runs and 14 RBI. He tried to play through the injury after an MRI did not show serious damage, but he aggravated it during an at-bat Saturday at Milwaukee.

Meet Omar, who might be the longest cat in the world
Miss Hirst said Omar is mischievous and is capable of opening doors, kitchen cupboards, shower screens and wardrobes. But being Instagram-famous, or even world-famous, doesn't seem to be high on Omar's list of priorities.

The Mets moved right-hander Jeurys Familia (blood clot in shoulder) to the 60-day disabled list to open up a 40-man roster spot for Ramirez.

Jose Reyes was set to fill in at shortstop again Tuesday, with Wilmer Flores playing third base. In his place, Jacob deGrom will start on his regular four days of rest Friday night at home against the Los Angeles Angels.
