News: Chris Carter Up, Frank Catalanotto DFA'd

The Mets have promoted 1B-OF Chris Carter from Triple-A Buffalo, and designated Frank Catalanotto for assignment.

well, The Animal should have been on the roster instead of Mike Jacobs back on April 1, but better late than never… he hits… he can drive the ball… the kid has been eager to get up here… and so, let’s see what he can do, as this should give Jerry Manuel some more pop, especially against left-handed pitching

The 27–year-old Carter is batting .339 in 28 games at Triple-A, with 16 extra base hits and 20 RBI.

He has a .448 OBP against left-handed pitching this season.
