Also claimed yesterday was Robert Carson, who is on his way to the Los Angeles Angels. Carson probably won't be as fondly remembered by the Mets faithful after a short by terrible 2013 campaign. Carson appeared in only fourteen games, but gave up nine home runs and walked seven in round an earned run average north of eight. As a result, he became expendable due to others in the organization who will soon force their way into the team's bullpen.
There will be more moves coming, as thirty-six players still sit on the 40-man roster. The Mets have until November 20th to add players like Jacob deGrom, Cory Vaughn and Steven Matz to the 40-man roster. Otherwise they can be selected by other teams during the Rule 5 draft.
