Now that the Triple-A regular season is over, the Mets have recalled Logan Verrett, Dilson Herrera, and Johnny Monell from the Las Vegas 51s. The three players are all on the Mets' 40-man roster and will help provide depth for the big club down the stretch.

Logan Verrett, a right-hander, has appeared in ten games for the Mets this season. He was optioned to Triple-A on August 30 to make room for the newly acquired Addison Reed. Verrett impressed during his time in New York, posting a stellar 1.93 ERA in 23.1 innings with 23 strikeouts. His most outstanding performance came in a start in Colorado, going eight strong innings and earning the win.

Dilson Herrera last appeared in a game for the Mets on June 27. He was optioned to Las Vegas when Daniel Murphy returned from an injury on June 30. The 21-year-old experienced big league success in 2014, but was not able to replicate those numbers in 2015. In 93 plate appearances, the second baseman hit .195/.290/.317.

Johnny Monell will be the fourth catcher on the Mets' roster, joining Anthony Recker and Kevin Plawecki as backups to Travis d'Arnaud. Monell last played for the Mets on July 19 in St. Louis. He was optioned to Vegas in a swap for Recker later that day. The 29-year-old hit for a .467 OPS in 49 plate appearances with New York.
