New York Mets Place Two Players On Waivers

In a series of recent roster changes, the New York Mets have undertaken strategic adjustments.

Outfielder Abraham Almonte and reliever Adam Kolarek have been designated for assignment, a move designed to facilitate the return of Mark Vientos from the 10-day injured list and the promotion of Jeff Brigham from Triple-A Syracuse.

Both Almonte and Kolarek have previously faced the designation for assignment process earlier this season, leaving them with options to explore free agency or accept assignments to Syracuse should they clear waivers once again.

Adam Kolarek, acquired by the Mets through a trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, has showcased a flawless 0.00 ERA this season, delivering strong performances over six innings shared between the two teams.

Meanwhile, Abraham Almonte, signed on a minor league contract, has made limited appearances throughout 2023.

He has primarily contributed as a pinch-hitter and served as a defensive substitute due to the Mets' outfield challenges, which have arisen from a combination of trades and injuries. Photo Credit: Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports
