Mets Chris Schwinden placed on waivers to make room for Elvin Ramirez

According to ESPN News, Chris Schwinden who vacated one of the two roster spots that need to be opened for the promotion of right-handed reliever Elvin Ramirez and activation of catcher Josh Thole from the disabled list.

Schwinden was placed on waivers by the Mets on Thursday, that maneuver would free a 40-man roster spot for Ramirez.

The 25-year-old Schwinden is 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA in 8 2/3 innings at the major league level this season. He has made three appearances (two starts).

The Mets still will need to free a 25-man roster spot for Thole.

Assuming the Mets do not go with three catchers -- which would not seem the likelihood -- Mike Nickeas would appear far more vulnerable than Rob Johnson for a demotion.
