Double-A Binghamton’s Edgar Ramirez was suspended for 50 games Monday after testing positive for Methylhexaneamine, ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin reports.

Ramirez, who has been in the Mets system since being drafted in the 36th round out of LSU in 2006, isn’t viewed as a prospect.  The 27-year-old was 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA in two starts and seven relief appearances for Binghamton this season.  Pitching at the same level, he had a 4.93 ERA in 76 2/3 innings last year.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that a source is telling him that the Yankees have traded Bryan Mitchell and Chase Headley to the San Diego Padres.

Headley, a third baseman, hit .273/.352/.406 for the Yankees last year. He, of course, played for the Padres from 2007 through the middle of 2014, when he was dealt to New York. Mitchell has pitched 48 games for the Yankees, most from the pen, over four seasons, with an ERA of 4.94 in 98.1 innings. He doesn’t strike out many and he walks a lot.

No word yet on what the Padres could be sending to New York. We’ll obviously update as soon as more is learned.
