When the Mets promote a third catcher in September,could be a feel-good story if he gets the nod over major league veterans and . A solid defensive catcher who was acquired from the Texas Rangers for on Aug. 30, 2006, Nickeas had been a career .231 minor league hitter before this season. Nickeas, benefiting from injuries to catchers , and , hit .283 with five homers and 33 RBIs in 82 games with the B-Mets this season. He was promoted to Buffalo, made his first appearance last Wednesday and was tabbed as the Bisons’ No. 1 catcher.

For now, the Mets called up Lucas Duda and Jenrry Mejia.
Let's Go Mets!
