Mike Cameron said he was bringing “sexiness and color” back to the Red Sox outfield. He forgot one other thing: leather.
Witness the great catch he made yesterday afternoon to send the Sox-Orioles game into extra innings. With all due respect to Darnell McDonald, the seemingly effortless way in which Cameron ranged back for that drive to the deepest part of Camden Yards and caught the ball over his shoulder is the reason the Sox went out and snagged him.
Mets reliever A.J. Ramos has a torn labrum and will undergo season-ending surgery on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Ramos, 31, has been out of action since late May. In his last two appearances, in Milwaukee against the Brewers, he walked both batters he faced in the 10th inning, then gave up three runs and recorded only two outs the next day. On the season, he owns a disappointing 6.41 ERA with a 22/15 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings. The shoulder issue explains his struggles.
The Mets acquired Ramos from the Marlins ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline last July. Ramos will be eligible for free agency once the season concludes.
