Mets place Kevin Pillar on injured list, call up Wilfredo Tovar

The Mets have placed outfielder Kevin Pillar on the injured list with multiple fractures in his nose as the result of being hit in the face by a pitch last night, and the team has called up Wilfredo Tovar to take his place on the active roster. Since Tovar wasn’t on the 40-man roster, the team also designated catcher Deivy Grullón for assignment to make room for him.

Mets' Wilfredo Tovar: Contract selected

Tovar's contract was selected by the Mets on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The Mets are dealing with injuries up and down the lineup and will turn to Tovar for at least a bench role. He's unlikely to do much if he finds his way into the lineup, as he's a career .188/.241/.238 hitter through his first 40 big-league games. Kevin Pillar (face) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Mets' Wilfredo Tovar: Gets first spring start

Tovar will start at shortstop and will bat eighth in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Tovar had previously appeared off the bench in eight of the Mets' spring games, going a collective 0-for-6 at the dish. He'll get the chance to pick up his first start of the Grapefruit League slate Monday, but the 29-year-old doesn't look to be warranting any legitimate consideration for a spot on the Mets' Opening Day roster. Expect him to be reassigned to minor-league camp within the next few days.

Mets' Wilfredo Tovar: Late to camp

Tovar has yet to arrive to Mets' spring training, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. The 29-year-old isn't dealing with an injury, though it otherwise remains unclear why he's not with the team in Florida. Tovar spent 2020 at the Twins' alternate training site and last played with the Angels in 2019 and had a .492 OPS in 88 plate appearances. He joined the Mets on a minor-league deal this offseason.
