LHP Sean Gilmartin has been claimed by the St. Louis Cardinals after being designated for assignment by the Mets earlier on Sunday.
The Mets designated Gilmartin for assignment to clear room for RHP Seth Lugo.
Lugo made his 2017 debut after recovering from a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament. He pitched in 17 games for the Mets last season, going 5-2 with a 2.67 ERA.
Meanwhile, Gilmartin appeared in just two games for the Mets this season, allowing five runs on eight hits in 3 and 1/3 innings of work.
