Outfielder Mike Baxter, right-hander Aaron Harang and catcher Juan Centeno officially were promoted for today’s series opener.
Ruben Tejada’s promotion apparently will wait. If the Mets stall promoting Tejada, they will delay his free-agency eligibility from after the 2016 season until after the 2017 season. A Tuesday call-up would give Tejada two years, 171 days of service time at the end of the season. Credit for a full MLB season comes at 172 days.
