Mets option Grant Hartwig to Triple-A, trade RHP Yohan Ramirez to Dodgers

The Mets have made a couple of moves before Monday's series opener against the Cleveland Guardians.

Right-hander Grant Hartwig has been optioned to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Tylor Megill, who was activated from the IL to start Monday's game.

Additionally, right-hander Yohan Ramirez is on the move again, as he's been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for cash considerations.

Ramirez was picked up this offseason from the Chicago White Sox and he began the year with the big-league team, but was quickly designated for assignment after just two appearances.

The 29-year-old was traded to the Baltimore Orioles, also in exchange for cash, and he made just five outings with them before being traded back to the Big Apple.

Ramirez recorded five strikeouts across a pair of scoreless outings in his return to the Mets, but he was DFA'd for a third time late last week, before being picked up by the Dodgers.

He's pitched to a 6.91 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 10 outings this season.
