With rosters expanding in Septmeber, the New York Mets announced they have called-up three more players to add them to the major league roster: 1B/OF Dominic Smith, SS Jack Reinheimer, and RHP Drew Gagnon. With these three players being recalled, they were not available for Las Vegas’ finale for the 2018 season, as the Triple-A affiliate for the New York Mets, and for Cashman Field.
Smith has played 31 games with the Mets this season, and he is hitting .195/.225/.377 with six doubles, a triple, two homers, and three RBI. He has played 15 games at first base and nine in left field.
Reinheimer has played five games with the Mets this season. In 15 plate appearances, he is hitting .286/.333/.286. He has made appearances at third base, shortstop, and left field.
The 28 year old Gagnon made his Major League debut with the Mets this season. In his one start, he allowed six earned on seven hits over 4.2 innings while walking one and striking out three.
With the minor league seasons coming to a close for all Mets affiliates today, it will be interesting to see which players are called-up to the Majors to join these three players. At the moment, Gerson Bautista, P.J. Conlon, Franklyn Kilome, and Luis Guillorme are the remaining healthy players on the 40 man roster who have yet to be called up to the majors.
