Mets Claim Chris Schwinden

Chris Schwinden is back with the Mets after a busy month that saw him change organizations four times. The Mets announced that they claimed the right-hander off of waivers from the Yankees and optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo (Twitter link).

The Blue Jays claimed him off of waivers from the Mets on June 2nd, the Indians claimed him off of waivers from Toronto four days later, and the Yankees claimed him on June 29th before designating him for assignment yesterday. Schwinden has a 4.31 ERA with 6.3 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 14 starts for four Triple-A teams this year. He also appeared in three games for the Mets.

To be fair, he didn’t really get claimed by the Mets. The waiver wire just designated him for assignment.
