The Nationals returned Rule 5 pick Elvin Ramirez to the Mets
Ramirez, a hard-throwing right-handed pitcher, missed the entire season after undergoing shoulder surgery. The Nationals technically kept Ramirez on their 25-man roster all season, but since he spent the entire year on the disabled list the Nationals would have had to keep Ramirez on their 25-man roster all of next season in order to keep him in the organization.
The Nationals chose Ramirez from the Mets with the sixth pick of last December’s Rule 5 draft. Ramirez, 24, has thrown only 6 2/3 innings above Class A. The Nationals will get $25,000 back from the Mets in the transaction.
