Ramirez to the DL, Batista activated, Egbert DFA'd

The Mets have placed Ramon Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.

Miguel Batista has been activated from the disabled list, and will take Ramirez’s place on the active roster.

In addition, the Mets officially selected the contract of RHP Chris Young.

To make room for Young on the 40-man roster, the Mets have designated RHP Jack Egbert for assignment.

Egbert was called up on May 25 and made one relief appearance for the Mets, not allowing a baserunner in 2/3 of an inning.

In 17 appearances and one start with Triple-A Buffalo, Egbert was 2-3 with a 2.08 ERA, having allowed 22 hits, six earned runs and five walks in 26 innings.
