The Mets will be getting some reinforcements before Tuesday night's game, with Todd Frazier and Anthony Swarzak being activated from the disabled list.
New York needed to clear two 25-man roster spots to make room for Frazier and Swarzak, and did so by optioning RH reliever Gerson Bautista to Triple-A Las Vegas and DFA'ing LH reliever Buddy Baumann.
By removing two relievers from the roster, the Mets now have a seven-man bullpen.
Meanwhile, while Jose Reyes wasn't be DFA'd on Tuesday, his job is not safe long-term or even in the near future, SNY's Andy Martino wrote Monday.
Reyes is hitting .141/.208/.197 in 77 plate appearances in 40 games, and has also been a detriment defensively.
Regardless of the roster decisions on Tuesday, it's hard to see Reyes being on the team much longer. The Mets will likely soon have to make room for Noah Syndergaard and Yoenis Cespedes, and there really isn't an argument to be made for Reyes staying over anyone else at that point.
