Eric O'Flaherty is expected to throw for scouts Wednesday in Seattle.
O'Flaherty, who turns 31 in February, had some shoulder issues last season and struggled to the tune of an 8.10 ERA and 21/18 K/BB ratio over 30 innings between the Athletics and the Mets. He claims to be healthy now and believes that he has fixed his mechanics, so he'll try to make his case in his throwing session. Odds are he'll have to settle for a minor league deal at this point.

Eric O'Flaherty is day-to-day with a back injury.

There are eight days until the start of the NLDS, so O'Flaherty should be fine health-wise. But he probably won't crack the roster anyway with his 8.10 season ERA.

Mets acquired LHP Eric O'Flaherty and cash considerations from the Athletics in exchange for a player to be named later.

O'Flaherty was designated for assignment by the A's last weekend but has landed on his feet quickly. The left-hander hasn't been the same pitcher since all the injuries hit, as his 5.91 ERA in 25 games for Oakland this year can attest. He can still get lefties out, though, having held them to a .186/.286/.209 batting line this season. O'Flaherty is taking Alex Torres' spot in the bullpen.
