Mets Will Place Mike Baxter And Ramon Ramirez On Disabled List, Chris Young Coming Soon

Mets fans will always remember Whitestone's own Mike Baxter for his catch in Johan Santana's no-hitter.

Mike Baxter did everything he could to make an outstanding catch in Johan Santana's no-hitter last night, sacrificing his body to preserve Santana's historical start. It comes as no surprise that Baxter will hit the disabled list, but Terry Collins told reporters today that Baxter is expected to miss six weeks with injuries to his collarbone and ribs. Baxter has hit .323/.392/.523 with a .390 wOBA in 70 plate appearances this season.

In addition to Baxter's obvious injury, Ramon Ramirez hurt his hamstring during the celebration of Santana's no-hitter, and according to Collins, he'll also hit the disabled list tomorrow. Ramirez has a 4.78 ERA and 3.37 FIP in 26.1 innings since joining the Mets this year.

The Mets will call up a pair of players tomorrow, and Chris Young could be the pitcher as ESPN New York reports that Young's rehab stint is complete. In four rehab starts between St. Lucie and Buffalo, Young posted a 2.35 ERA. If the Mets are looking to give Santana a little extra rest following his 134-pitch no-hitter, they could start Jeremy Hefner on Monday and Young later in the week.
