Ramos appeared in 7 games, collecting 1 hit, a homer, in 11 plate appearances. He had an average of .091. Ramos has been with the Mets organization since 2011. This moves comes a few days after Brandon Brosher was added to the Cyclones roster.

In 42 plate appearances this season, Katz has 7 hits, 8 runs, 11 RBIs 2 homers, a double and 11 RBIs. In 52 games during the past 2 seasons, Katz has 49 hits, 19 walks, 10 doubles, a triple 2 homers, 29 RBIs, & 6 stolen bases. He made no errors this season.

The Sand Gnats will get another bat & infielder with the transfer of Katz.

The promotion of Ramos most likely happened because of Adrian Abreu’s suspension.

With the transfer of Katz, Katz’ Korner will suspend all meowing.
