From the Mets’ official Twitter account comes word that the team agreed to terms on minor league contracts Wednesday evening with second baseman Brad Emaus and outfielder Fred Lewis.

Emaus was selected by the Mets in the 11th round of last December’s Rule 5 Draft and had a shot at claiming starting second base duties heading into the 2011 season. But that plan ultimately fell flat and he was eventually designated for assignment. The 26-year-old is doubtful to suddenly prove capable of handling a big league job.

Lewis, a 31-year-old speedster, was released by the Indians on April 2 after failing to win an Opening Day roster spot. Like Emaus, he will merely function as organizational depth this summer for New York.

    So much for Brad Emaus’ career as a Laredo Lemur.

    Does anyone know why the Laredo team is the Lemurs? All the other good names were taken? The owner is a big “Madagascar” fan?
