The New York Mets recalled pitcher D.J. Carrasco from Triple-A Buffalo while optioning hurler Dale Thayer to the minors.

Ronny Paulino Activated, Nickeas Optioned

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, The New York Mets activated catcher Ronny Paulino from the disabled list and demoted Mike Nickeas to Triple-A Buffalo.

Paulino signed a $1.3 million free-agent contract in early December to serve as a right-hitting complement to Josh Thole behind the plate.

He had difficulty securing a visa because of a 50-game MLB suspension for a performance-enhancing substance and arrived late to spring training.

Team doctors discovered Paulino had issues with anemia, so Paulino was placed on the disabled list after the remaining eight games of his suspension were completed while his blood levels returned to more normal levels.

He was eligible to be activated from the DL on Tuesday, but tweaked a side muscle last weekend with Triple-A Buffalo, further stalling his return.

Paulino hit .190 (8-for-42) with four RBIs and a walk in 12 rehab games between Class A St. Lucie and Buffalo.

Manager Terry Collins indicated he plans to platoon the left-hitting Thole and Paulino, with the exception of Thole catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey regardless of the opposing pitcher.

Nickeas hit .250 with 20 at-bats and belted his first major league homer on April 21, off Houston's J.A. Happ.

Pagan to DL, Pridie to Lineup

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  RY ...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Angel Pagan left Tuesday’s game after pulling a muscle in his side and Adam Rubin of reports that the Mets will place him on the disabled list prior to tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks.

Pagan had hoped to return in a few days, but clearly the Mets didn’t want to play short-handed in center field given their commitment to keeping former center fielder Carlos Beltran in right field no matter what.

Rubin reports that Jason Pridie will replace Pagan on the roster, coming up from Triple-A to bat eighth in the lineup tonight. Pridie was once considered a decent prospect, but now he’s a 27-year-old career minor leaguer with his third organization and has hit just .273 with a .738 OPS in 376 games at Triple-A. He’s a fifth outfielder at best, so the Mets will definitely miss Pagan.

Emaus gets DFA'd, Justin Turner gets recalled

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 08:  Brad Emaus #4 of the...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
In a time where offense is needed the Mets designated infielder Brad Emaus for assignment and recalled Justin Turner, tweets David Lennon of Newsday.

Emaus, a Rule 5 pick from the Blue Jays, earned the second base job out of Spring Training but only received 42 plate appearances to establish himself.

If he's not traded or claimed in the next ten days, the Mets have to offer him back to the Blue Jays (or work out a trade to keep him in the organization).  If another team picks up Emaus, they'll still be subject to the Rule 5 restriction of keeping him in the Majors all year.

Emaus, 25, hit .290/.397/.476 in 534 plate appearances for the Blue Jays' Double and Triple-A clubs last year, playing second and third base.

I feel bad for Brad Emaus because I thought he could handle the Majors, but the Mets are in flux and they need offensive numbers to produce runs...Good Luck Brad

Mets News and Notes : Bullpen Moves, Duda

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Jas...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Jason Isringhausen is back with the Mets more than a decade after leaving New York in a trade.

New York purchased the contract of the veteran right-hander after Sunday's game and designated reliever Blaine Boyer for assignment.

Jason Isringhausen pitches for the Mets in spring training. The right-hander will try to help ease the load of an already overworked bullpen. 

Boyer allowed four runs in the 11th inning Sunday, three on a pinch-hit three-run homer by the Washington Nationals' Laynce Nix. Boyer had a 10.80 ERA in five appearances with New York.

Isringhausen, 38, began the season in extended spring training to build arm strength. He was signed to a minor league contract prior to the start of training camp but was still working his way back from 2009 elbow surgery. He pitched well enough to be in contention with Boyer for the final spot on the opening day pitching staff.

New York dealt Isringhausen to the Oakland Athletics at the July 31 deadline in 1999. He became a top closer for the A’s and St. Louis Cardinals before injuries limited his effectiveness.

The Mets also recalled right-hander Ryota Igarashi from Class AAA Buffalo on Sunday and optioned outfielder Lucas Duda to Buffalo. The move gives the Mets 13 pitchers on their staff.

Alderson trades for Dykstra

Alderson today swapped a former Mets first-round pick, Eddie Kunz, for a former first-round pick from his old franchise, San Diego farmhand Allan Dykstra (no relation to Lenny)
Kunz debuted in the majors in 2008, one year after he was drafted. But he bottomed out in recent campaigns, spending all of 2010 at Double A with a 5.34 ERA.

Dykstra, a 23-year-old first baseman, homered 16 times and posted an .810 on-base plus slugging percentage in high Class-A ball last season.
