Callups and Callbacks

10With active rosters expanded to 40 players, the Mets yesterday recalled lefty starter Kaz Ishii 23 and for the first time, a pair of relievers, Tim Hamulack and Shingo Takatsu.

According to a published roster, lefty Hamulack was outfitted in No. 46 while Takatsu took No. 10and summarily becomes the pitcher with the lowest uniform number in Met history (take that,Cory Lidle 11 of 1997!). Takatsu, known as “Mister Zero” wore 10 prior to his release by the White Sox. Tonight the Mets are expected to activate Doug Mientkiewicz 16 from the disabled list. To fit the new additions on the 40, the Mets moved Mike Cameron to the 60-day disabled list, meaning he won’t be back this year, which is no huge surprise.
