Mets place AJ Ramos and Wilmer Flores on 10-day disabled list

May 28, 2018

ATLANTA — The Mets are placing AJ Ramos and Wilmer Flores on the 10-day disabled list.

Mickey Callway made the announcement ahead of the team’s first Memorial Day matchup during a split doubleheader in Atlanta.

Both players traveled back to New York on Sunday to be examined. An MRI revealed that the struggling reliever is suffering from rotator cuff tendonitis. The infielder (lower back tightness) has yet to see team doctors.

“Obviously he’s struggling to put the ball where he wanted to, I think that’s the first sign that something is going on with somebody,” Callaway had said of Ramos, who’s been trying to find the strike zone all season but had a particularly bad weekend.

Ramos allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in 0.2 of an inning Saturday. He threw nine pitches and just one found the strike zone Friday, walking back-to-back hitters to force in the Brewers’ game-winning run in the bottom of the 10th. Scouts at the two games noticed that Ramos was “yanking” his pitches. In 28 appearances, Ramos has allowed 24 earned runs and issued 15 walks over 19.2 innings pitched.

Flores exited Sunday’s game early in the fourth inning, and the manager said his back issue is bad enough they “went ahead and put him” on the DL.

“We gave him a day off three or four days ago because it was bothering him,” Callaway said of Flores on Sunday. “He got some treatment and was doing OK, then it started bothering him again today.”

Flores’ back issue manifests itself in trouble throwing from third base; he committed two errors in the four-game series in Milwaukee. Flores struggled on a throw to first in the third inning Sunday and left the game shotly afterward.

The Mets recalled Phil Evans to help the bench while Flores and Todd Frazier are on the DL. They added lefthander P.J. Conlon to the roster on Sunday to bolster an already taxed bullpen and brought in Gerson Bautista as the 26th man for the scheduled split doubleheader against the Braves.

The Mets also activated catcher Kevin Plawecki and righthander Hansel Robles off the disabled list. Plawecki had been on the DL since April 12 with a hairline fracture to his left hand, and Robles had been on the DL since May 11 with a right knee sprain.

In another roster move, Tomas Nido has been optioned to Double-A Binghamton.
