It is a day New York Mets fans have waited for. Their team has officially sent down first baseman Eric Campbell and called up recently acquired James Loney.

New York is currently dealing with piles of injuries to key players like Lucas Duda, who has a stress fracture in his back, and David Wright, who has a herniated disc in his neck.

The return of Wilmer Flores from the DL helps fill the void a little bit with his ability to play third. But the Mets needed a first-base man, so they went out and got Loney from the Padres in exchange for cash.

Campbell wasn’t necessarily a fan favorite, so the Mets fan-base is sure to be happy with this move.

This means that 27-year old utility infielder Ty Kelly will remain on the 25-man roster over Campbell.
