As expected, Wilson Valdez has officially taken Alex Cora’s spot on the 25-man roster, reports Adam Rubin.
Cora, who will have surgery on both thumbs due to torn ligaments in each, will miss the remainder of the season.
Valdez was pulled from the Bisons game last night in anticipation of a call-up. Valdez was 12-for-his-last-27 with Triple-A Buffalo.
He hit .208 / .269 / .333 with three RBI in 26 plate appearances with the Mets in 11 games earlier this year.
