The Mets announce via their official Twitter that the team is expected to call up outfielder Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday. Abreu is hitting .412 in 40 plate appearances in the minor leagues.

Abreu, 40, spent spring training with the Phillies but was released at the end of March despite posting a .404 on-base percentage during 17 exhibition games. Abreu has not played in the Major Leagues since 2012, when he spent time with both the Angels and Dodgers.

    With the Phillies luck, Abreu will come back and kill them all season.

    He killed the ball in winter ball. He killed the ball in spring training. He killed the ball in triple-a. There’s no reason he won’t hit at an acceptable level in the majors. Teams in the AL should’ve tried him as a DH.

    The Mets need somebody who can at least make contact. It’s incredible watching them try to hit and seeing how many times they simply whiff or foul tip pitches without putting the ball in play. You have to watch their games and then watch other teams games to realize the contrast. The number of times Met hitters strike out is just incredible.
