Mets to recall Mike Baxter, Aaron Harang, and Juan Centeno

The Mets will soon add the trio to their roster.

Following their win in Cleveland this afternoon, the Mets announced that they will promote three players from the minors tomorrow: Mike Baxter, Aaron Harang, and Juan Centeno.

Baxter is, of course, best known for his catch that helped save Johan Santana's no-hitter last year. He's bounced back and forth between the big leagues and Triple-A Las Vegas this year, though, and he's hit just .208/.325/.277 when with the Mets.

Harang was signed to a minor league deal by the Mets last week. He made 22 starts with a 5.76 ERA and 4.69 FIP for the Mariners this year before he was released. The 35-year-old figures to give the Mets some starts down the stretch as they wind down Zack Wheeler's season.

Centeno, a catcher, is 23 years old and has not yet appeared in the big leagues. He had just a .711 OPS between Triple-A and a brief stint in Double-A this year, and he did not make Amazin' Avenue's Top 50 Prospects before the season.

Missing from the list for now is 23-year-old shortstop Ruben Tejada, who is expected to join the team shortly after the aforementioned trio. The delay should allow the Mets to push back Tejada's arbitration eligibility.
