Eric Young, Jr. will bat leadoff and start in center field in his Mets' debut Wednesday against the Braves.
Young was acquired from the Rockies on Tuesday night in exchange for right-hander Collin McHugh. The 28-year-old was batting just .242/.290/.352 with the Rockies this season, but he has plenty of speed and could receive regular playing time in the Mets' outfield. He's someone to keep in mind in deeper mixed formats if you need stolen bases.
Mets signed RHP Giancarlo Alvarado to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.
The 35-year-old was sporting a 4.03 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 29/19 K/BB ratio in 38 innings this season in the Mexican League. It's not clear what the Mets want with him.
Mets first baseman Ike Davis has been named the Pacific Coast League player of the week.
Davis hit .474 over six games, with four home runs. He's performed well in 12 games at Triple-A Las Vegas, with a .310/.463/.690 slash line. Davis is working his way back to the majors after hitting .161/.242/.258 in 186 at-bats.
ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports that there's a "fair chance" Ike Davis is recalled after the Mets' upcoming series against the White Sox.
That would put him in line for a return next weekend. The Mets surely planned to keep Ike at Triple-A Las Vegas longer, but Lucas Duda landing on the disabled list might speed up the timetable. It also certainly doesn't hurt that Davis recently had back-to-back two-homer games at Vegas. Overall, he's batted .310/.463/.690 across 12 games at Triple-A.

Matt Harvey has allowed 26 earned runs this year. Unfortunately, the bullpen has allowed 25 earned runs in Harvey's starts.
Ike Davis is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday.
Manager Terry Collins has insisted that Davis and Josh Satin are not in a platoon at first base, but Satin has started both times against lefties since Davis was recalled. Ike has batted .308/.471/.308 in three games since coming back from Triple-A.
