The New York Mets have recalled outfielder Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Abreu, 40, signed a minor league deal with the Mets after failing to crack the roster of the Philadelphia Pillies this spring.
Since being stationed at Triple-A, the former All-Star has put together a .395/.489/.579 line with a home run.
In order to make room fro Abreu the Mets sent Andrew Brown to Triple-A. Brown had just a .185/.233/.333 line in 30 plate appearances making the decision rather easy for the Mets.
The Mets figures to use Abreu in much the same role as Brown had been used. Abreu last played in the majors during the 2012 season.
