Matthew Cerrone reports that the Mets designated Emaus for assignment, which means he must now be offered back to the Toronto Blue Jays for $25,000 because of his Rule 5 status.
Emaus has been struggling as of late, both at the plate and defensively. He's hit .162 with one RBI in 14 games. I really wish that given his Rule 5 status, they would have given Emaus more of a chance, maybe even trying a platoon of Emaus and Daniel Murphy.
To fill the void left by Emaus, the Mets have promoted everybody's favorite ginger, Justin Turner. Well, he's my favorite ginger anyway.
Turner started off 12-for-4o in ten games for the Buffalo Bisons and will be active for tonight's game against Houston.
I'm really happy that Justin got the chance; he was one of the nicest ballplayers at this past spring, making sure he signed for every single solitary person. You can follow him on Twitter here.
