Mets – Thole Out, Johnson Called Up
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets have put catcher Josh Thole on the seven-day disabled list because of a concussion and promoted catcher Rob Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo.
Thole was elbowed in the head by Ty Wigginton of the Phillies during a play at the plate in the Mets' 5-2 win Monday night. The Mets made the roster move before Tuesday night's game at Philadelphia.
Thole had returned to New York for examination. He was hitting .284 with one homer and seven RBIs.
Johnson, a native of Butte, Mont., spent last year with San Diego.
He was hitting .291 with two home runs and seven RBIs at Buffalo.
