New York Mets DFA Brad Emaus, Recall Justin Turner

The New York Mets have decided to put an end to the Brad Emaus experiment after just 16 games.  They released the Rule 5 second baseman on Tuesday before their game with the Houston Astros as Citi Field.  Justin Turner was called up from Triple-A Buffalo to take Emaus' roster spot.

Though he won the job out of Spring Training, Emaus was thought of to have an advantage of the others competing -- including Turner -- due to his status as a Rule 5 selection from the Toronto Blue Jays.  The Mets would have needed to keep Emaus on the Major League roster all year or offer him back to Toronto for $25,000, half of the price for a Rule 5 pick.

Emaus was just 6-for-37 with one RBI while playing solid defense.

Turner had played 10 games for Buffalo, hitting .300 with four extra base hits including two triples.
