With the 40-man roster expansion right around the corner in MLB, the New York Mets have announced their first batch of call-ups.

By Robby Sabo

The only serious roster adjustments remaining during the 2015 regular season are finally upon us. It is the expansion of the normal 25-man roster into the 40-man for September.

Every team receives this benefit. Whether you’re a contender for a playoff spot and looking for a little extra help on the bench, or simply playing out the string and want to give a few youngsters a look.

In the case of the New York Mets it’s the former: They’re contenders.

Sandy Alderson and company have already announced their first batch of September call-ups. Most are familiar faces. Players who previously disguised themselves as MLB hitters (until real reinforcements came in at the trade deadline).

Here’s the first batch of September call-ups:

  • Kevin Plawecki, Catcher
  • Eric Campbell, Utility
  • Eric Young Jr., Outfielder
  • Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Outfielder

They will all depart from Triple-A Las Vegas and join the big club on Tuesday.
