Tim Byrdak and Zach Lutz are expected to join the Mets as rosters expand.WASHINGTON -- While the bulk of call-ups will wait until after Las Vegas completes its postseason, the Mets are expected to call up Tim Byrdak and Zach Lutz on Sunday, team insiders suggested.
The Lutz call-up was precipitated by Ike Davis suffering a potentially season-ending right oblique strain Saturday.
Byrdak undoubtedly pitched during the second half in the minors with the Mets with the carrot of a September call-up. He underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder on Sept. 6. 2012. That is the same procedure Johan Santana now has twice undergone.
UPDATE: The Mets have confirmed these promotions.
