4) AJ Ramos

Only slightly more memorable than a few of the names on this list, AJ Ramos has the benefit of being forgotten because of time. He’d actually play a little bit more after leaving the Mets. He even managed to appear in two different seasons with them.

There isn’t a World Series ring in his collection, though. Ramos came over to the Mets via trade with the Miami Marlins in the summer of 2017. While the Mets were busy selling off pieces, they decided to add one along the way. The Marlins closer was having a less effective season and the two division rivals made a swap.

Upon joining the Mets, Ramos was even worse than he had been. His 3.63 ERA with the Marlins jumped up to 4.74. He’d stick around for the following season, pitching to a 6.41 ERA in 19.2 innings of work. The attempt to steal away a high-leverage reliever didn’t work as planned. Ramos was hurt and in the minds of most fans, easy to forget.

His All-Star appearance happened only one year before joining the Mets. A 2016 representative for Miami, this was a year where he saved 40 games for the Fish.
