Mets designate Joey Wendle for assignment and bring up Mark Vientos in series of roster changes

Mets Make Big-League Roster Changes in Bid to Boost Performance Against Phillies

On Wednesday, the Mets made several roster moves in preparation for their game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The team recalled Mark Vientos from Triple-A to share time at third base with Brett Baty. Joey Wendle, who had been struggling on both offense and defense, was designated for assignment.

The Mets hope that Vientos can provide a spark for the team after hitting a walk-off home run in his brief appearance earlier this season. Meanwhile, Joey Lucchesi was called up to start in place of Adrian Houser against the Phillies. Despite pitching well in his first seven big-league appearances, Jose Butto was sent back to Syracuse after a five-inning outing on Tuesday.

Grant Hartwig was also added to the roster to bolster the shorthanded bullpen, replacing Yohan Ramirez, who has been designated for assignment. It seems that the Mets are making these moves in an effort to shake things up and improve their performance on both offense and defense.

Vientos and Lucchesi will have the opportunity to showcase their skills at the big-league level, while Butto and Ramirez may have another chance to contribute later in the season. Only time will tell if these roster changes will have a positive impact on the team’s performance moving forward.
