CINCINNATI — The New York Mets have traded outfielder Billy McKinney to the Los Angeles Dodgers for minor league outfielder Carlos Rincon and cash.

He was designated for assignment on July 16.

The 26-year-old Ramirez will be optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.

He pitched in one game for St. Louis this year and one game last season.
