Mets News: Mets DFA (P) Buddy Carlyle to make room for Jon Niese

Mets News:

The Mets have designated right-handed reliever Buddy Carlyle for assignment to clear the roster spot for Monday's activation of Jon Niese from the disabled list.

Carlyle, 36, has produced a 1.29 ERA in five major league appearances this season.

He also was outrighted to Las Vegas on June 7 after clearing waivers. That time, Carlyle accepted the assignment to Triple-A.

That also means that Daisuke Matsuzaka is now a reliever, although he will be on standby Monday in case Niese has an issue in his first game action since a 12-pitch effort on July 4. Niese officially has been on the DL with a left shoulder strain. The Fourth of July start separately was shortened by getting struck with a line drive in the lower back.

Matsuzaka opened the season in the bullpen, marking the first time in his career in that role. He has a 2.22 ERA and opponents are hitting only .145 in 17 relief appearances this season. Still, he has walked 19 in 24 1/3 innings in that role.

Collins met with Matsuzaka on Sunday morning to inform him of the decision. Matsuzaka is 2-3 with a 4.24 ERA in nine starts in 2014.

Mets News: Niese to DL, Carlyle gets Call Up from Vegas

Mets News:

The Mets announced in the first inning of their 5-3 loss to Texas on Saturday night that righty Buddy Carlyle was heading to New York from Class AAA Las Vegas. Although no corresponding move was announced, it appears likely that he will be taking Niese’s spot on the roster. Manager Terry Collins said after the game he would talk about Niese’s status today, and it seems imminent that he will be placed on the disabled list.

However, Niese’s physical problem apparently isn’t his lower back, which was bruised when he was hit by a line drive off the bat of Alex Rios. Multiple reports indicate the issue is his shoulder, and Collins had said before the game that Niese had "other issues" besides his back.

The Mets RHP Dillon Gee (strained right lat), who has been on the DL since May 11, appears ready to return. Gee had a good rehab outing for Class A Brooklyn on Friday, striking out 10 in six innings. Gee said after Saturday’s Mets game he "absolutely" is ready to return to the majors. And because he pitched Friday, he would be right on track to take Niese’s scheduled start.

Mets News: Buddy Carlyle Designated For Assignment By Mets

Mets News:

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.

Mets News: Andrew Brown to be called up, bullpen arm to go down Thursday

Mets News:

According to ESPN, the Mets have summoned Andrew Brown from Triple-A Las Vegas in order to restore the bench to its customary five players.

He will travel to Chicago on Wednesday, but will not be activated until Thursday's series finale. The Mets will play with an extra bullpen arm for one more game.

Brown went 2-for-2 off the bench in Tuesday's 6-5 Pacific Coast League loss to Reno. That raised his average to .359 with 13 homers and 31 RBIs in 142 Triple-A at-bats this season.

Brown opened the season with the Mets. He was demoted April 21 when the Mets added Bobby Abreu. Brown hit .185 with one homer and five RBIs in the 27 early season at-bats in the majors.

Most Likely either Buddy Carlyle or Dana Eveland will be sent back down...

Mets News: Mets Call Up Buddy Carlyle for Insurance to Bullpen, Montero Might be Sent down??

Mets News:

Veteran reliever Buddy Carlyle is headed to Philly to aid an overworked Mets relief corps.

The reinforcement was needed after Rafael Montero lasted only 3 2/3 innings and Terry Collins exhausted his bullpen in a 14-inning loss to the Phillies on Friday.

The corresponding move was not yet clear, but a source suggested Montero could be optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to open the spot, which would presumably mean Daisuke Matsuzaka stepping into the rotation, potentially until Dillon Gee returns from the disabled list.

Carlyle is 1-1 with a 1.27 ERA and one save in 21 1/3 innings with Vegas spanning 18 relief appearances. The 36-year-old right-hander has appeared in the majors during parts of seven seasons, with the Padres, Dodgers, Braves and Yankees.

Carlyle will have to travel from El Paso, Texas, where the 51s are currently playing.

Mets News: Mets sign pitchers Buddy Carlyle and Dana Eveland to minor league deals


Mets News:

The Mets announced this week that they've inked right-hander Buddy Carlyle to a minor league deal. The 36-year-old last appeared in the Majors in 2011 with the Yankees and has a career 5.58 ERA in 253 1/3 innings.

Carlyle, who did not receive an invitation to Major League Spring Training, spent 2013 with the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate and posted strong numbers: a 3.86 ERA with 12.2 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 56 innings of relief.

Southpaw Dana Eveland has also agreed to a minor league deal with the Mets that does not include a major league Spring Training invite.

Eveland, who threw in Korea last year for the Hanwha Eagles, has played in parts of eight MLB seasons. His career ERA stands at 5.46 through 392 2/3 innings, split about evenly between starting and relief.
