As the New York Mets prepare for their three-game series against the Yankees, the team has optioned right-handed pitcher Elvin Ramirez down to the minor leagues, reports Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger. The move was made in order to create a roster spot on the 25-man roster for infielder Ronny Cedeno, who is in the lineup batting second and playing shortstop tonight.

Ramirez, 24, received a cup of coffee at the big league level with the Mets before being sent down. He was mostly ineffective in just 7 innings of work ,though, walking 8 batters in those innings and allowed 7 runs to score. It was his first stint at the major league level.

Ronny Cedeno will take his spot on the Mets' 25-man roster as he returns from injury. The 29-year-old shortstop has only played in 25 games this season because of injuries. Cedeno is hitting .231/.351/.308 in 78 plate appearances, which is about where he's been his whole career.
