The Mets are not going to be making a run for the playoffs. What better reason do they have for calling up some of their better minor league players?

The New York Mets have nothing to lose by calling up some of their hottest hitters in the minors. They have some hitters who are top prospects waiting for their first big shot and they have others who have tried and failed at the big leagues before and want another shot.

Regardless of where their stories began or what they became, the Mets have twohitters twiddling their thumbs in Las Vegas who could really prove their worth for the team in September. These players not only can get some major league action this season but can prove they belong in the majors next season and in the future as well.

But seriously, what do the Mets have to lose by calling them up? They aren’t even going to make it to 81 wins this season and their lineup gets more and more injured as the days go by. At this point, even calling up bad players would be a blessing to those who either spent the whole season with the team or spent some time with an injury.

There are plenty of pitchers in Las Vegas and other players in other levels that deserve a shot and will probably make it, but we won’t talk about them. Right now, aside for one or two pitchers, these hitters are really where the money and short term need are.

Here are the two hitters across the country who could shine in Queens for the month of September.
