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.
