Just when Wilfredo Tovar thought his season was over he is getting to wear a major league uniform for the first time.

The 22-year-old infielder had already returned to his native Venezuela for the winter but was informed on Thursday he had been added to the Mets’ roster to provide depth at shortstop.

“I was surprised” Tovar said Friday after the Mets beat the Phillies 6-4 at Citizens Bank Park.

Tovar is expected to start at shortstop on Sunday according to manager Terry Collins. Tovar gives the team another option behind Omar Quintanilla in the aftermath of Ruben Tejada suffering a broken fibula in his right leg ending his season.

In 133 games for Double-A Binghamton this season Tovar batted .263 with four homers 36 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.
