Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez Come Full Circle
Last off season, only a few hours after we learned that Jose Reyes had signed with the Miami Marlins, Sandy Alderson made some noise of his own and traded Angel Pagan to the Giants in exchange for center fielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez.
After already signing Andres Torres to a one-year deal, $2 million deal last month, the Giants have just agreed to a one year deal with Ramon Ramirez according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Ramirez appeared in 58 games for the Mets in 2012 and posted a 4.24 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 63.2 innings pitched. Torres meanwhile, batted .230 with a .664 OPS in 132 games for the Mets.
Pagan tested the free agent waters this Winter, but quickly agreed to re-sign with the World Champs for a four year, $40 million deal. Last season, Pagan batted .288 with 95 runs, 29 stolen bases, 38 doubles, 8 home runs and led the major leagues with 15 triples — a total that broke Willie Mays‘ franchise record.
