The Mets outrighted catcher Jose Lobaton to Triple-A Las Vegas, two days after designating him for assignment, according to MetsMerized's Jacob Resnick.
Lobaton hit .152 with no home runs and three RBIs with the Mets, being replaced on the active roster by Tomas Nido's promotion to the majors and New York's acquisition of Devin Mesoraco in the Matt Harvey trade earlier this month.
Catchers Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki have spent a majority of this season on the disabled list, but manager Mickey Callaway believes Plawecki should return from a broken hand within 10 days.
Overall, Mets catchers have a .163/.280/.291 batting line this season with four home runs and 19 RBIs. Their .163 batting average ranks the lowest among all 30 MLB teams.
