This helps explain why despite home runs in back-to-back games, Martinez, who was hitting .292/.361/.477 in AAA did not play Wednesday. For those asking about Kirk Nieuwenhuis, he's not on the Mets 40-man roster. The Mets would not and should not burn one of Nieuwenhuis's option years on a short-term fix.
Lynn Worthy reports that Dylan Owen and Michael Fisher are headed from the AA B-Mets to AAA Bisons.
The 26-year old Fisher is a great organizational piece as a switch-hitter who can play any of the infield positions. He even comes with a little bit of power as vouched for by his .281/.326/.494 line in 23 games in AA.
As long as we're on the bodies for Buffalo kick, Jon Heyman breaks the big one and reports that the Mets have signed 37-year old INF Luis Figueroa.
Don't laugh, dude's a career .291/.336/.385 AAA hitter.
