The Mets erred on the side of caution with David Wright, placing him on the 15-day disabled list. The Mets called up infielder Andy Green to take his place on the roster.
Green, 32, has seen time in three different seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks, from 2004 to 2006. In 260 major league plate appearances, he’s batting .199 / .280 / .265 with two home runs and 12 RBI.
He signed with the Mets in July of 2008, only to be released on Nov. 3. Fifteen days later, he re-signed with the Mets.
This season with Triple-A Buffalo, Green has hit .269 / .333 / .412 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 35 games. He’s split his time between third base and second base this season, but is a second baseman by trade.
Green missed 2 1/2 months with a fractured thumb, reports Peter Botte.
He’s a perfect fit.
