Red Hot Duda Gets The Call

An article by posted on June 10, 2011

As some suspected, the Mets will recall Lucas Duda from Triple-A Buffalo in time for tonight’s game against the Pirates,.

Duda will replace Nick Evans, who was designated for assignment last night.

Duda is batting .302 with 10 home runs and 24 RBI in 38 games/154 at-bats with Buffalo. In his last ten games, he’s hit .389 with 10 runs scored, four doubles, five home runs and 12 RBI.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets have designated Nick Evans for assignment and will announce a corresponding move tomorrow.

Evans, 25, did not have a hit in 12 at-bats with the Mets and hasn’t gotten much playing time with the hot hitting of Daniel Murphy and Justin Turner.

However, the Mets are in desperate need of some production from left field and I’m wondering if Lucas Duda will get the call tomorrow?

Duda has been on a tear in Buffalo and going into tonight’s game, he has seven homers in his last 14 games and an eight-game hitting streak.

In 37 games, Duda is batting .302 with a .404 OBP and .579 SLG in 152 at-bats.

We’ll update you as soon as we know something.
