Ken Rosenthal reports the Mets are acquiring AJ Ramos from the Marlins. Why are the Mets buying? No clue. They’re both. The Mets record is 47-53, but Ramos’ deal does last through next year. He’s also got a solid arm.
The Marlins get the Mets No. 9 prospect Merandy Gonzalez and No. 22 prospect Ricardo Cespedes sources confirm.
AJ Ramos purpose is mostly for the Mets 2018 season instead of this season. A good pickup for their future, but by giving away their future.
More to come, and will be edited when the trade is fully confirmed.
