Mets RH reliever AJ Ramos is experiencing biceps tendinitis, was examined on Monday, and will play catch today, the team said.
Ramos is considered day-to-day.
He last pitched on Friday, when he allowed one hit and walked one in 1/3 of an inning. He had allowed three runs on five hits while walking one and striking out two in 2/3 of an inning last Tuesday.
The 31-year-old Ramos, who was acquired from the Marlins at the end of July, has a 5.00 ERA and 1.72 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 18.0 innings while saving seven games (20 appearances) for the Mets.
Ramos, who had been serving as closer while Jeurys Familia was on the disabled list, is expected to be part of the back-end of the bullpen for the Mets next season.
