Infielder Danny Muno has been optioned back to Triple-A Las Vegas, the Mets announced late Friday night. Muno has been up and down between Triple-A and the majors this season, typically taking the place of various injured players.
In 31 plate appearances over 16 games, he hit just .154/.267/.192. However, with today's trade for Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson, the Mets needed to free up multiple spots on the 25-man roster, making Muno the odd man out.
Despite hitting .295/.372/.392 in Las Vegas this year, Muno was never able to find his footing in the majors, but the 26-year-old switch hitter still has time to figure out his swing. Uribe and Johnson will fill out the infield enough that he likely won't see another call this year barring injuries, but both new players are free agents at the end of the year and the Mets infield will look vastly different in 2016.
