Mets Call Up Khalil Lee, Almora to IL

The Mets will call up prospect Khalil Lee in place of the injured Albert Almora Jr.

It will be the first MLB call up for the just 22 year old outfielder. The left handed hitting Lee played 6 games for Syracuse so far hitting .250/.478/.313

Over his minor league career Lee has a career slash line off .256/.368/.408 over 5 minor league seasons. Lot of strikeouts in his game, but the talent is there.

The Mets traded for Lee this off-season in a three team trade with the Royals and Red Sox. The Mets send Josh Winkowski and a PTBNL in the deal. Lee is the Mets number 7 prospect according to MLB Pipeline. He was already on the 40 man so no roster move needed there.
