Mets RHP AJ Ramos has been placed on the 10-day DL (retroactive May 27) with a right shoulder strain, the team announced Monday.
Ramos went to New York to undergo an MRI on his shoulder after feeling tightness in his appearance Saturday. It turns out there was a problem with the shoulder, and he will need some rest to get it right again.
The righty has struggled on the mound so far this season, with his latest outings in Milwaukee as prime examples. On Friday, he faced two batters and walked both with the winning run coming across on the final walk. Saturday was worse as he allowed three runs in less than an inning.
After his outing Friday, Ramos said he knows he has not being doing the job he is expected.
"I haven't been doing my job plain and simple," he said after the game. "There's no excuse, no rhyme or reason. There's not anything going on. Just haven't been very good. Working on it, trying to get better. But, as of right now, I just haven't been doing the job and that's just how it is."
Ramos, 31, owns an inflated 6.41 ERA this season, and since coming over to the Mets from the Marlins last season, he has a 5.59 ERA. Hansel Robles has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his spot on the roster.
