The Mets have called up top catching prospect Tomas Nido. The 23-year old will be coming to the show out of the Mets’ Double-A Rumble Ponies. His calling card is his above average skill behind the plate.

Nido was drafted by New York in the 8th round of the 2012 first year draft. While his slash line this year was a middle of the road .232/.287/.354, he shows signs of power in the batter’s box.

This call up seems timed perfectly, with d’Arnaud leaving last night’s game after twisting his knee. Granted it was only a matter of hours before someone else on the Mets fell into the void of injury, but the coincidence is noted.

Let us take a moment to pray for Nido and his limbs and that they all stay in the place they’re supposed to be.
