Nickeas removed from roster
By Adam Rubin
Mike Nickeas has cleared waivers and been removed from the 40-man roster by the Mets. He was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas.
The Mets currently have Josh Thole and righty-hitting waiver claim Anthony Recker on the 40-man roster at the catching position.
Nickeas, 29, hit .174 with one homer and 13 RBIs in 109 at-bats during the 2012 season.
