The Mets have claimed LHP P.J. Conlon off waivers from the Dodgers, less than a week after losing Conlon to the Dodgers after DFA'ing him.
In order to make room for Conlon on the roster, the Mets DFA'd infielder Phillip Evans.
Conlon, 24, allowed four runs on eight hits while walking none and striking out one in 2.0 innings during his start for the Mets against the Braves on May 18 in Atlanta. He made his major league debut on May 7 against the Reds in Cincinnati, allowing three runs in 3.2 innings.
Conlon, who thanked the Mets organization in a Twitter post on Saturday after being claimed by the Dodgers, may not have a future in the starting rotation. But using him as a LOOGY (left-handed one out guy) could make sense.
Evans, 25, hit .111 in seven games for the Mets this season. He was hitting .255/.323/.531 with 11 HR in 43 games this season for Triple-A Las Vegas.
