The Mets have activated J.D. Davis from the injured list, optioned José Peraza to their alternate site, and announced that Stephen Tarpley will once again serve as their 27th man for today’s doubleheader in Colorado. In addition, the team announced that Franklyn Kilome cleared waivers and has been optioned to the alternate site.
Davis has played in just two of the Mets’ eight games so far this year, as he was sidelined after being hit on the hand by a pitch. In five whole plate appearances, he has a .333/.600/.333 line. It’ll be interesting to see how the Mets dole out playing time at third base, as both Jonathan Villar and Luis Guillorme have had early success this year, too, and bring more defense to the table than Davis does.
As for Peraza, he did not get into a game in his time on the Mets’ active roster, which can at least be partly attributed to the Mets’ incredibly number of postponed games in the early going. Tarpley has also not appeared in a game for the Mets yet after being the 27th man in the team’s doubleheader against the Phillies earlier this week. And Kilome, who we ranked 10th on our list of the Mets’ best prospects for this year, remains in the organization as pitching depth.
