The Mets have placed outfielder Jake Marisnick on the injured list with right hamstring tightness and called up outfielder Guillermo Heredia from their alternate site to take his place on the roster.
If you’re not familiar with Heredia, he’s only been in the Mets’ organization since late August, when he was claimed by the team off waivers from the Pirates. In 1,119 plate appearances in the big leagues with the Mariners, Rays, and Pirates, Heredia has hit just .239/.317/.339 with an 83 wRC+. He’s played all three outfield positions at the major league level, and he’s spent the majority of his innings playing center field.
As for Marisnick, he’s made just 34 plate appearances for the Mets in this shortened season. The team traded for him in the offseason between the 2019 and 2020 seasons, and in his abbreviated playing time this year, he hit .333/.353/.606 with two home runs and a 158 wRC+. Given the short time remaining in the Mets’ regular season and incredibly low odds of making the playoffs, his season is likely over.
