Nats return Ramirez to Mets

The Nationals returned right-hander Elvin Ramirez to the Mets on Tuesday. The news comes almost a year after Washington selected him in the Rule 5 Draft.

Ramirez never played a Major League game for the Nationals because of shoulder problems, however, he recently managed to pitch in several games in the Instructional League.

The last time Ramirez pitched professionally was in 2010, going a combined 4-4 with a 4.16 ERA for Class A St. Lucie and Double A Binghamton.
