The Mets announced that they have called up outfielder Mike Baxter, starting pitcher Aaron Harang, and catcher Juan Centeno, following Sunday’s 2-1 win against the Indians. All three had been assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas before they were eliminated from the postseason play on Saturday night.
Baxter, has seen some time this season with the Mets and has a .208/.325/.277 in 120 plate appearances with the big league team.
Harang, signed a minor league deal with the Mets last week after he was released by the Seattle Mariners. In 22 starts, the 35-year-old posted a 5.76 ERA. He’s expected to make one or two September starts for the Mets.
Centeno, 23, is a highly regarded defensive catcher who batted .305 with a .345 on-base with Las Vegas.
No word on 23-year-old Ruben Tejada, but he is expected to join the team Tuesday or Wednesday.
Yesterday, the Mets also called up relievers Greg Burke and Frank Francisco.
