Mets Claim Marcos Carvajal off Waivers

Marcos Carvajal was claimed by the New York Mets off waivers from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Friday.

The 22-year-old righty went 2-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 38 games last season with the AA Montgomery Biscuits, striking out 70 batters in 72.1 innings. As far as his big league career goes, he was 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA in 39 games with the Colorado Rockies in 2005.

New York designated right-hander Steve Schmoll for assignment to open a spot on the roster for Carvajal. They have 10 days to trade him, send him outright to the minors or release him altogether.




Schmoll. What an unfortunate name.
