Kevin Parada, Alex Ramirez among Mets reassigned to minor league camp
After their 10-7 loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday night, the Mets reassigned six players to minor league camp.
Among the group of six include highly touted prospects C Kevin Parada and OF Alex Ramirez, as well as RHP Connor Grey, RHP Grant Hartwig, RHP Eric Orze and LHP Josh Walker.
Parada, 21, and Ramirez, 20, were among 15 players the team invited to major league camp at the beginning of February, as were the rest of the players who were reassigned. Nine of the 15 players remain.
Ramirez got a decent look this spring with 17 at-bats. During that opportunity, the outfielder tallied four hits and one walk, scored three runs and had an RBI. He also struck out seven times and was caught stealing once. He’ll likely begin the season at High-A Brooklyn.
Recently drafted No. 11 in the 2022 MLB Draft, Parada saw less time than Ramirez as he tried to get acclimated with his first spring training. In six at-bats, the organization’s third overall prospect had a hit, run and RBI while walking once and striking out twice. He’ll likely start the season in Single-A St. Lucie.
