Return Of The Beltran Applesauce: Carlos Back In Town, Josh Thole And Elvin Ramirez Join Mets

Cheer the man.

Meet the Mets

Josh Thole and right-handed relief pitcher Elvin Ramirez will join the Mets in time for the series-opener this evening. Thole hit the seven-day disabled list just ten days ago after suffering a concussion on a play at the plate. Ramirez has been lights out this year, but aside from a 12.2-inning sample in Buffalo this year, control has been a major problem throughout his minor league career.

Chris Young is scheduled to make one or two more rehab starts in the minor leagues before joining the Mets.

Speaking of the disabled list, Matt Kemp is on it again, Troy Tulowitzki has joined it, and Nick Markakis has a broken hamate so he's on it, too.
