Ramos is behind Jeurys Familia in the closer pecking order, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Ramos, who was the primary closer for the Marlins for two and a half seasons, was briefly the Mets' closer while Familia was on the disabled list last season. Earlier reports this offseason suggested that the Mets would use a closer-by-committe approach, but pitching coach Dave Eiland now says that Familia will get "most" of the save chances. That certainly doesn't rule Ramos out from getting any saves, and a run of poor outings from Familia could easily see them flipping roles, but for now, don't expect Ramos to get anywhere near half of the Mets' save opportunities.
