The Mets made a flurry of roster moves before Tuesday night's game against the Yankees, swapping three new relievers in while sending four relievers to Triple-A Syracuse and adding an additional bench player.
Jeurys Familia, Justin Wilson, and Luis Avilan were all activated from the IL, while INF Luis Guillorme was called up from Triple-A Syracuse.
To make room on the roster fot the four added players, the Mets optioned relievers Chris Flexen, Brooks Pounders, Stephen Nogosek, and Chris Mazza to Syracuse.
Familia landed on the IL on June 18 due to a Bennett lesion in his throwing shoulder. He had been struggling badly before landing on the IL.
Wilson has been out since May 1 due to left elbow soreness, and had his rehab assignment briefly stopped on June 18 because of left elbow tightness.
Of the relievers who were sent down, Flexen had turned in four scoreless appearances before hitting a speed bump on June 30.
Mazza had only made one appearance since being called up, which was also his major league debut. He fired 4.0 strong innings in relief on Sunday while allowing just one run on five hits while walking none and striking out two.
After all of Tuesday's moves, the Mets are back to having 12 pitchers and 13 position players.
