Mets Relief Pitcher DJ Carrasco Designated For Assignment

D.J. Carrasco was already on thin ice with the New York Mets after precipitating drama the night before with a hit by pitch that lead to his ejection.

When he gave up a two-run homer to Todd Frazier with his first pitch on Wednesday night, that might have been the last straw for one of the most struggling pitchers in a struggling bullpen. The 35-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment shortly after New York's 6-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.

"It's pretty self-explanatory," Carrasco said. "I would have done the same thing if I were the general manager."

The Mets recalled LHP Robert Carson from Class AA Binghamton (N.Y.) to replace Carrasco

Mets Designate Nick Evans For Assignment, Again...

The Mets designated Nick Evans for assignment to create roster space for David Wright, according to's Adam Rubin (on Twitter).

Evans, 25, has appeared in 17 games for the Mets this year and has a .148/.343/.333 line through 35 plate appearances as a first baseman, third baseman and left fielder.

The former fifth round pick had a .329/.378/.480 line at Triple-A before joining the Mets and he has a career line of .278/.344/.479 in eight minor league seasons.

Evans has played all three outfield positions and both corner infield positions in his brief Major League career.

Emaus gets DFA'd, Justin Turner gets recalled

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 08:  Brad Emaus #4 of the...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
In a time where offense is needed the Mets designated infielder Brad Emaus for assignment and recalled Justin Turner, tweets David Lennon of Newsday.

Emaus, a Rule 5 pick from the Blue Jays, earned the second base job out of Spring Training but only received 42 plate appearances to establish himself.

If he's not traded or claimed in the next ten days, the Mets have to offer him back to the Blue Jays (or work out a trade to keep him in the organization).  If another team picks up Emaus, they'll still be subject to the Rule 5 restriction of keeping him in the Majors all year.

Emaus, 25, hit .290/.397/.476 in 534 plate appearances for the Blue Jays' Double and Triple-A clubs last year, playing second and third base.

I feel bad for Brad Emaus because I thought he could handle the Majors, but the Mets are in flux and they need offensive numbers to produce runs...Good Luck Brad

Mets will bring up Dillion Gee, DFA Pat Misch

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Dil...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
The Mets will designate left-hander Pat Misch for assignment to make room for Dillon Gee before tomorrow's game, reports Andy Martino of The New York Daily News (on Twitter).

Misch, 29, was called up earlier today to serve as bullpen depth during the Mets-Braves doubleheader. He appeared in the first game, allowing one run across two innings of work. The Mets outrighted Misch to Triple-A at the end of Spring Training, and he opted to remain with the team instead of becoming a free agent after clearing waivers. They did the same thing to him last season as well.

Mets Designate Two For Assignment

Scott Hairston signing autographs for his fans...Image via Wikipedia
The Mets have DFA'ed both Tobi Stoner and Jason Pridie to make room for Chris Young and Scott Hairston on the 40-man roster.

They will be on the waiver wire for the next ten days and the Mets could always look to trade them .It is likely that neither of these players will be claimed since they both have very little major league experience.

Both Stoner and Pridie will likely be brought to Spring Training to try to regain their spots on the 40-man roster if they clear waviers and stay with the Mets.
