Mets recalled INF Wilfredo Tovar from Double-A Binghamton.

Ruben Tejada broke his right fibula on Wednesday night, so Tovar is being brought in as shortstop depth. The 22-year-old from Venezuela hit just .263/.323/.340 this summer at Double-A but he carries a strong defensive reputation.

Mets purchased the contract of INF Wilfredo Tovar from Double-A Binghamton.

Tovar is a career .255/.317/.331 hitter with five homers across five minor league seasons, but the Mets like what he can do with the glove. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
