Mets To Add Nick Evans, Dillon Gee, Raul Valdes


According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are expected to add right-hander Dillon Gee, left-hander Raul Valdes and first baseman/outfielder Nick Evans to the active roster on Monday in time for the series opener in Washington against the Nationals.
Gee went 13-8 for the Bisons with a 4.96 ERA and currently leads the International League with 165 strikeouts. He was just named Buffalo’s Comeback Player of the Year.

Evans batted .294 with 17 homers and 55 RBIs in 88 games with Double-A Binghamton, and then hit .314 with six homers and 25 RBIs after a promotion to Triple-A Buffalo.

Valdes was 2-3 with a 4.73 ERA and one save in 31 appearances with the Mets earlier this season.

Note: Gee would have to be added to the 40 man roster meaning the Mets would have to make room for him with a corresponding move.
