The New York Mets today selected infielder Brad Emaus and righthanded Pedro Beato in Major League Baseball’s Rule 5 Draft.

Emaus, 24, was selected from Toronto’s Triple-A Las Vegas roster. He batted .298 (92-309) with 25 doubles, three triples, 10 home runs and 49 RBI in 87 games at Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and hit .272 (37-136) with seven doubles, five home runs and 26 RBI with New Hampshire (AA) of the Eastern League last season.

During his five-year minor league career, Emaus has hit .276 (431-1,559) with 100 doubles, eight triples, 39 home runs and 227 RBI in 425 games.

Beato, 24, was selected from Baltimore’s Triple-A Norfolk roster. The 6-6, 230-pounder went 4-0 with 16 saves and a 2.11 ERA (14 earned runs/59.2 innings) in his first year as a full-time reliever. In 43 games for Bowie (AA) of the Eastern League, he allowed 49 hits and 19 walks while striking out 50.

The Mets selected Beato, a Ridgewood, Queens native who graduated from Brooklyn’s Xaverian High School, in the 17th round in the 2005 First-Year Draft. He did not sign and the Orioles drafted him in the supplemental first round the following year.

Beato has compiled a 24-30 mark with a 4.21 ERA (236 earned runs/504.0 innings) in 131 games, 83 starts with 182 walks and 350 strikeouts over his five-year minor league career.
