Hot off the Mets press (release)…
Mets.com is reporting,
The New York Mets today announced that they recalled catcher Josh Thole from Binghamton (AA) of the Eastern League. The Mets’ 13th round selection in the 2005 First Year Player Draft is expected to join the Mets in Colorado for tomorrow evening’s game and will wear uniform # 30.
Josh Thole will get his first cup of coffee with the MLB Mets, and it’ll be interesting to watch. His debut has been pretty hyped, as he has been dubbed the catcher of the future. Something to note is this :
The lefthanded-hitting catcher hit .328 (88-268) against lefthanded pitchers, while also hitting .328 (88-268) against righthanded pitchers.
Obviously that’s just AA ball, but he looks like he can hit. Good luck Josh Thole!
