Following last night’s groundout to shortstop in his only at bat of the night, Frank Catalanotto was Designated for Assignment. Catalanotto hit just .160 (4-25) with only 1 RBI. Chris “The Animal” Carter, the player who the Mets received in the Billy Wagner trade will be at Citi Field tonight in his place. Carter had been stuck at the AAA level in Boston’s organization for several seasons and began the season there this year for the Mets. He’ll serve as the primary left-handed pinch hitter, and could occasionally get spot starts at the corner out field position.  In 113 ABs thus far in AAA-Buffalo, Carter is hitting .336 with 6 HRs and 22 RBIs, along with an active 11-game hit streak.
