Adam Rubin of ESPN is reporting that Travis d’Arnaud is tentatively going to be promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas in time for the Mets series against the Oakland Athletics starting on June 24th.

The move is most likely going to be made so the minor league option will be rescinded.

D’Arnaud has been tearing it up in Las Vegas since his demotion, hitting .395 with five home runs and 10 RBI.

Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal announced via twitter that the Mets have chosen to option outfielder Matt den Dekker to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis has been recalled to take his place on the roster. The 26-year old Nieuwenhuis has hit well in Vegas recently, batting .308 with six homeruns in his last 24 games for the 51s.

Den Dekker was hitting just .156/ .224/.200 in 45 at-bats for the Mets.
