The Mets put in a waiver claim and now have C Kelly Shoppach from the Red Sox.
He is pretty good against lefties with a career line of .270/.364/.530 .
The 32 year old will split time now with Thole I am sure for the remainder of the season.
Shoppach will be a free agent at season's end.
The Mets have been in the market for a catcher that has some pop.
