Mets Claim Infielder Off Waivers

The New York Mets have claimed Gosuke Katoh off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays.

Katoh was designated for assignment by the Jays earlier this week. When it was announced that he was heading to waivers, it seemed possible that another team could take a shot on him. Now, the Mets have made that come to fruition, and he will be aiming to make their major league roster from here.

Katoh will begin his tenure with the Mets organization in Triple-A. However, if he puts together some strong play, he should get a call-up at some point during the regular season.

In eight games with the Blue Jays this season, Katoh had one hit in seven at-bats.
