Date:

Buddy Carlyle (back) is headed to the disabled list.

Carlyle had to leave an appearance Monday after experiencing stiffness in his lower back and hadn't shown much improvement over the last two days. Relief depth will probably be on the way from Triple-A Las Vegas.
May 13 - 5:04 PM

Buddy Carlyle had to leave an appearance on Monday with lower back stiffness.

He can probably safely be considered day-to-day. Carlyle pitched one-third of a scoreless inning before exiting and holds a 5.63 ERA for the season.
May 11 - 11:26 PM

Buddy Carlyle recorded a save Monday by retiring the final two hitters of the game in a win over the Nationals.

With Jenrry Mejia (elbow) unavailable, Jerry Blevins got a flyout to start the night before handing it off to Carlyle, who got two groundouts to end it. It was the first career save for the 37-year-old, but the only reason he was used instead of Jeurys Familia is because Familia had already pitched earlier in the game.
Apr 6 - 7:33 PM

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Buddy Carlyle from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Carlyle posted a 1.93 ERA over 10 appearances this spring, which was good enough to win a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. The 37-year-old had a 1.45 ERA and 28/5 K/BB ratio over 31 innings with the Mets last season.
Apr 5 - 11:17 PM

Buddy Carlyle is up to 5 1/3 scoreless innings this spring after retiring all three Cardinals he faced Friday.

Besides Dillon Gee, Carlyle would seem to be the other big beneficiary of Zack Wheeler's injury, as he could now slide into Gee's spot in the pen. It's not a lock yet, but he's in good position.
Mar 20 - 4:16 PM

Mets signed RHP Buddy Carlyle to a minor league contract.

He received an invite to spring training. The 36-year-old hurler posted a 1.45 ERA and 28/5 K/BB ratio over 31 innings with the Mets last season, but he wasn't able to find a major league contract on the open market. Having logged a 5.58 MLB ERA prior to 2014, that development wasn't terribly surprising.
Jan 5 - 4:06 PM

Mets sent RHP Buddy Carlyle outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Carlyle, 36, was terrific in his time with the Mets this season, posting a 1.45 ERA and 28/5 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. He can elect free agency if he wants.

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Buddy Carlyle from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Carlyle was sent outright to Triple-A earlier in the week, but finds himself quickly back with the Mets. The 36-year-old hurler owns a 1.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 7/3 K/BB ratio over seven innings with the Mets this season. He'll function in middle relief.

Mets sent RHP Buddy Carlyle outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Carlyle cleared waivers and can now elect free agency. The 36-year-old may find a suitor after posting a 1.29 ERA in seven innings with the Mets.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 07:38:00 PM

Mets designated RHP Buddy Carlyle for assignment.

The 36-year-old did a nice job in his limited time with the Mets, allowing just one run over seven innings (1.29 ERA) while posting a 1.00 WHIP and 7/3 K/BB ratio. It's possible that he could generate interest on waivers from a team looking for bullpen depth.
Sun, Jul 20, 2014 07:43:00 PM

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Buddy Carlyle from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Carlyle tossed 3 1/3 scoreless relief innings for the Mets earlier this season. He'll be used in low-leverage situations.

Mets sent RHP Buddy Carlyle outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Carlyle had been designated for assignment, but he's cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. The veteran reliever is no safe bet to get another shot later this season.

Mets designated RHP Buddy Carlyle for assignment.

Carlyle had not allowed a run in 3 1/3 innings since his May 31 callup, but the Mets needed his roster spot for outfielder Andrew Brown, who will be promoted Thursday. Carlyle, 36, could draw interest on waivers.
Thu, Jun 5, 2014 12:18:00 AM

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Buddy Carlyle from Triple-A Las Vegas.

All seven members of the Mets bullpen pitched a total of 9 1/3 innings on Friday night, so Carlyle will likely be the first reliever to be used on Saturday. It figures to be a brief stay. Carlyle sports a 1.33 ERA in 20 1/3 innings over 17 games for Triple-A Las Vegas.
