The Mets announced on Saturday that they released third baseman T.J. Rivera.
Rivera has struggled to recover from Tommy John surgery he had in September 2017, playing in only a handful of rehab games last season.
The 30-year-old had not appeared in any Grapefruit League games this spring and his baseball activities remained limited.
Rivera, a Bronx native, was signed by the Mets in 2011 and made his debut with the team in 2016.
He hit .304/.445/.780 with eight home runs and 43 RBI in 106 games over two seasons with the Mets.
