The Mets will recall infielder Luis Guillorme from Triple-A Las Vegas, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. The need for another infielder at the major league level was created on Tuesday when Todd Frazier went on the 10-day disabled list with a hamstring strain.
Guillorme, 23, hit .182 over the first two weeks of the season, but he has turned it around to a .413 clip in his last 14 games. Guillorme is currently in the midst of nine-game hitting streak, including two base knocks in each of his last six contests.
This offseason, Guillorme was named as the best defensive second baseman in the minor leagues. He’s returned to shortstop, his natural position, with Las Vegas this year.
Guillorme was the Mets’ 10-round draft choice in 2013 from Coral Springs High School in Florida, and was added to the 40-man roster last November ahead of the Rule 5 Draft.
