Bobby Abreu to Join Mets

The Mets announced on Twitter Sunday evening that Bobby Abreu would join the team in time for Monday’s game against the Cardinals.

The 40-year-old Abreu is batting .395 with a homer and nine RBIs in 15 games for Las Vegas. With Ike Davis no longer on the team, the Mets apparently felt the need for a veteran lefty bat off the bench.

Bobby Abreu sat out the 2013 season and made a comeback this spring. The Mets scooped him up after the Phillies cut him loose at the end of spring training.

The Mets did not announce a corresponding move, but it is probable that either Andrew Brown or Kirk Nieuwenhuis will be sent down. It will likely be Nieuwenhuis; he needs to play every day. It really doesn’t matter all that much because whoever survives will be assigned to Vegas when Juan Lagares returns from the disabled list next week.

    Do you think we can talk Manny Ramirez into suiting up, too?
