The Mets have recalled infielder Luis Guillorme from Triple-A Syracuse for the 26th roster spot for their doubleheader at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. Due to the doubleheader being scheduled less than 48 hours ago, he will be available for the second game only; the Mets will be limited to their existing 25-man roster for Game 1.

Guillorme hit .167/.211/.167 in just 19 plate appearances spread across April this season, primarily in a pinch-hitting and defensive replacement role. His line in Syracuse is .296/.417/.392, his .809 OPS the best of his minor league career to date, and he has played shortstop, second base, and third base with his characteristic steady hands.

Barring injury, the Mets are expected to send him back down at the end of Game 2.

The Yankees have opted for a pitcher for their 26th roster spot, calling up young right-hander Chance Adams from Scranton for the day.
