Ramon Ramirez Injured During Mets No-Hitter Celebration

[UPDATE: Joel Sherman later corrected himself. It was RAMON Ramirez who was injured, not Elvin as originaly reported.]

The recently-called-up Elvin Ramirez injured his hamstring during the New York Mets' no-hitter celebration on Friday night, according to the New York Post's Joel Sherman. He will likely be placed on the disabled list.

The 24-year-old Ramirez has been in the Mets system since 2007, but he's been opening some eyes in 2012. He pitched 13 innings in double A this season, with an ERA of 1.38 and 16 strikeouts before, being promoted to Triple A, where he continued his stellar pitching – in 14.2 innings, he struck out 19 batters, walked only one, and did not allow an earned run.
