Mets' Tomas Nido: Promoted to majors
Nido was recalled from Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.
Nido will get his first taste of the majors now that Binghamton's season is over. The 23-year-old backstop slashed .232/.287/.354 with eight homers and 60 RBI in 102 games for the Rumble Ponies prior to his promotion. Nido -- who was featured in the Futures Game earlier in the year -- is known more for his contact skills (14.9 percent strikeout rate) and strong defensive profile, so he isn't expected to make much of a fantasy impact down he stretch. While he'll likely see an occasional start, this is primarily a learning opportunity for the Mets' top catching prospect.
