Kelly Shoppach Trade: Mets Option Rob Johnson To Triple-A

A day after trading for catcher Kelly Shoppach, the New York Mets made a roster move Wednesday to make room for their new acquisition, as they sent catcher Rob Johnson to Triple-A Buffalo. Shoppach was not listed in the Mets' lineup Wednesday when knuckleballer R.A. Dickey was scheduled to take the mound for the Mets against the Cincinnati Reds (7:10 p.m. ET on SNY).

This was Johnson's second stint with the Mets this season, and the backup has compiled a .250 batting average with four RBI in just 52 at-bats.

Because of his lack of hitting and consistency with the glove, Johnson was a no-brainer to be sent down for the Mets, who are trying to stay in the postseason race.
