Mets To Call Up Six Players From Buffalo Tuesday

With the end of the Buffalo Bisons season on Monday, the Mets will be recalling four players, and purchasing two contracts from Triple-A. The players will be:

  • Jordany Valdespin, UTIL
  • Elvin Ramirez, RHP
  • Jeurys Familia, RHP
  • Jenrry Mejia, RHP

And the contracts that will be purchased are

  • Fred Lewis, OF
  • Justin Hampson, LHP

This is in addition to Colin McHugh being called up for today’s start and the prior two additions early this week of Mike Nickeas and Zach Lutz.

The roles of Familia and Mejia are undefined, but with the news that Harvey will more than likely be making two starts on the season, the possibility of Mejia or Familia getting a start or two seems likely. Fred Lewis gives the Mets another versatile OF with some speed and some pop. Justin Hampson gives the Mets a third lefty in the pen. Elvin Ramirez returns to try and carve out a bullpen role for 2013.
