Mets add Bobby Abreu to roster, send down Andrew Brown

And Kyle Farnsworth is the new closer.  Richard Hidalgo is available…

The Mets have officially brought up Bobby Abreu to their major league roster, optioning down outfielder Andrew Brown as a corresponding move.

Abreu will serve as as a left-handed hitter off the bench…

Abreu hit .395 in 15 games at Triple-A in Las Vegas.

“He’s played very well at Vegas,” [GM Sandy] Alderson said. “And he’s a great hitting role model for our players. He’s a professional hitter and I think our guys can learn something from him.”
