Mets Call-Up Phillip Evans

According to several reports, the New York Mets are expected to call-up INF Phillip Evans to the majors.  The move comes on the heels of Asdrubal Cabrera having to be removed from yesterday’s game with a back injury and with Amed Rosario dealing with a finger issue.

Evans, 24, has predominantly played third base this year.  He has also played second, short, and left field this season.  In 127 games, Evans hit .279/.341/.418 with 26 doubles, three triples, 11 homers, and 56 RBI.

As noted by MMN‘s own Michael Mayer, Evans will become the 15th player from the Mets 2011 draft to get called-up to the majors.  With Evans being drafted in the 15th round, he becomes the eighth player drafted after the 10th round to make it to the majors.  Those players include current Mets Robert Gsellman (13th), Travis Taijeron (18th), Seth Lugo (34th), and Chasen Bradford (35th).

Before being added to the 40 man roster, Evans was scheduled to be a minor league free agent this offseason.

    So if he stays on 40 man roster, do the Mets still have the typical 3 options on him, or does he need to go through waivers to be sent to Minor Leagues next Spring? I know he will likely be outrighted to Vegas, but just asking.

    Yay! And I love that picture! I wonder who took that 😉

    Yes: if on the 40-man roster, the club will have three option (years) come next spring.
    That is, IF they decide to keep him on the 40-man thru the off season: If he is removed before spring training, he immediately becomes eligible for free agency due to having already spent 7 years in the minors.
    Once spring training starts, if they want to send him to the minors, they can either option him – which keeps him on the 40-man and he remains club property. Or they can choose to outright him off the 40-man roster, at which point he would go thru waivers. If no one claims him, he is removed from the 40-man, but remains club property and his right to free agency is deferred until the end of the season (unless he is back on the 40-man at season’s end).

    I’m really glad he was added. He would have been eligible for free agency had he not been added this year. And I hate to lose players in that way when they’re still young (25) and are still improving (.328/.387/.527 over the second half of the season). From a tactical standpoint, this should have happened even without the Flores injury. This keeps him under club control for at least three more years and gives us a chance to see how far he can go. If he can’t make the grade in that time frame, so be it. But to lose a player like this for nothing now when he’s still on an upward trajectory is just a pointless waste. .
