ESPN’s Adam Rubin reports that the Mets have activated starter Jon Niese from the 15-day disabled list. To make room for him on the roster, the Mets have designated reliever Buddy Carlyle for assignment.
Niese went on the disabled list on July 5 with inflammation of the A/C joint in his left shoulder. Niese faced only three batters in his last start, on July 4 against the Rangers, before exiting with discomfort. The 27-year-old lefty has a 2.96 ERA and a 74/28 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings this season.
Carlyle, 36, has spent most of this season with Triple-A Las Vegas. He compiled seven innings of relief work at the major league level for the Mets, posting a 1.29 ERA and a 7/3 K/BB ratio. Carlyle is a veteran of eight major league seasons, having pitched in the big leagues for the Padres, Dodgers, Braves, and Yankees along with the Mets.
