Mets News: Buddy Carlyle Designated For Assignment By Mets
Right-hander Buddy Carlyle, who earned his first major league win in six years last weekend in Philadelphia, was designated for assignment by the Mets after a 5-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.
The Mets needed the roster spot for outfielder Andrew Brown, which will return the bench to its customary five players.
The Mets selected Carlyle over lefty reliever Dana Eveland as the roster casualty. The Mets will continue to have three southpaws in their now-seven-man bullpen.
