Nicholas Reginald Evans (born January 30, 1986) is an American professional baseball player. A right-hander, he currently plays left field and first base for the New York Mets.

Professional career

Nick Evans was born in Glendale, Arizona. He was selected out of St. Mary's High School in Phoenix, Arizona, by the Mets in the fifth round of the 2004 MLB Draft.[1]

Evans was called up from Double-A Binghamton on May 24, 2008 to replace Marlon Anderson, who had been placed on the disabled list. He started in left field for the Mets and batted eighth.[1]

In Evans' first career at bat, he doubled off Colorado Rockies pitcher Jeff Francis. He finished the game with three doubles, the first Met to hit three extra-base hits in his major league debut since Kazuo Matsui in 2004.[1]

Evans was optioned back down to Binghamton on June 6 after batting .174 in nine games when the Mets decided to call upon Abraham Núñez for infield depth.[2] Evans was again recalled on July 8 after Ryan Church went on the disabled list.[3]

Evans finally received his first Major-League start at first base, his natural position, on August 7, 2008 after only previously playing one inning there with the Mets.

On August 31, 2008 Evans hit his first career Major League home run against the Florida Marlins off pitcher Scott Olsen.[4]

Evans began the 2009 season in Triple-A Buffalo, but was eventually sent down to Double-A Binghamton. On June 19, Evans was called up by the Mets. He hit his first home run of the year on June 24.

On August 25, 2009 Nick was recalled along with pitcher Pat Misch when Billy Wagner was traded to the Boston Red Sox, and Johan Santana was placed on the 15 day disabled list.[5]
