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.
