The Mets have taken Ryan Reid off of the club's 40-man roster to make way for Kyle Farnsworth, reports Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com (via Twitter). Reid was outrighted, the club announced.
New York claimed Reid, 28, back in December from the Pirates. Reid finally got a brief MLB audition last year and threw 11 quality innings for Pittsburgh. Over 194 career Triple-A frames, he has a 3.57 ERA and has averaged 8.6 K/9 against 3.2 BB/9.
