News: Josh Thole has been Promoted

The Mets have promoted catcher Josh Thole from Double-A Binghamton of the Eastern League.

He is expected to join the Mets in Colorado for tomorrow evening’s game and will wear uniform No. 30.

Yesterday, Jerry Manuel said before the game that Thole might be limited to facing only right-handed pitchers.

frankly, i’d like to see thole bat against whomever… i mean, the team should be selective, if for no other reason than to not crush his confidence, but i don’t understand why lefty or righty should matter

Thole hit .328 against both left-handed and right-handed pitchers during his time in Binghamton.
