2) Yohan Ramirez

Just like Tonkin, Yohan Ramirez had two separate stints with the Mets this season, with the first being more chaotic than the other. He infamously threw at Brewers slugger Rhys Hoskins earlier in the season and was suspended for 3 games. He had two more bad outings and was designated for assignment on April 8.

On April 11, the Mets traded Ramirez to the Baltimore Orioles. He had a 6.00 ERA in five appearances and six innings with the Orioles. Baltimore then designated him for assignment on May 2 and the Mets snagged him back off the waiver wire on May 6.

Back with the Mets, he pitched two scoreless outings before being traded to the Dodgers on May 20 for cash after another DFA. This time it was of the unfortunate circumstance of the Mets needing reinforcements for an overtaxed bullpen.

Ramirez has been productive so far with the Dodgers, pitching to a 3.00 ERA over 10 appearances, highlighted by a save last week against the Yankees in an extra inning game. In eight of those outings, he gave up no earned runs and pitched at least one inning. He might play a bigger role for a team that has one of the best bullpens in baseball so far this season.
