Mets claimed RHP Chris Schwinden off waivers from the Yankees.

Schwinden has now gone from the Mets to the Blue Jays to the Indians to the Yankees and back to the Mets over the last month. He'll represent rotation depth at Triple-A but is probably best suited for a long relief role over the long haul.

Yankees designated RHP Chris Schwinden for assignment.

He was cleared to make room for Darnell McDonald on the 40-man roster. Schwinden has been with four different organizations since June 1 and could be on the move again.

Yankees claimed RHP Chris Schwinden off waivers from the Indians.

It's the fourth organization he's been in this month. Schwinden has been assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will represent rotation depth there.

Indians designated RHP Chris Schwinden for assignment.

He was cleared to make room for Vinny Rottino on the 40-man roster. Schwinden was recently claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays and posted a 5.87 ERA over three starts with Triple-A Columbus. Perhaps the pitching-hungry Blue Jays will try to get him back in the fold.

Indians claimed RHP Chris Schwinden off waivers from the Blue Jays; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.

We hope Schwinden didn't unpack his bags. The Blue Jays just claimed the 25-year-old right-hander off waivers from the Mets on Saturday, but now he's headed to his third organization in less than one week.

Blue Jays claimed RHP Chris Schwinden off waivers from the Mets; assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Schwinden was designated for assignment on Friday after posting a 12.46 ERA and 2.08 WHIP in three appearances (two starts) with the Mets. Toronto has designated Daniel Farquhar for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster in a corresponding move.

Mets designated RHP Chris Schwinden for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Elvin Ramirez, who will be added to the team Friday. Schwinden has posted an ugly 12.46 ERA and 2.08 WHIP over 8 2/3 innings this season for the Mets. He stands a good chance of clearing waivers and being outrighted to Triple-A.

Mets recalled RHP Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Buffalo.

Another expected move, Schwinden will replace Manny Acosta in the Mets' bullpen. The 25-year-old right-hander has allowed 11 runs on 13 hits over eight innings in the majors this season and isn't fantasy relevant. Look for him in long relief.

The Mets will recall right-hander Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but logic dictates the struggling Manny Acosta will get the boot. Schwinden has allowed 13 hits and 11 runs in eight innings this season for the Mets and figures to pitch in long relief.

Mets optioned RHP Chris Schwinden to Triple-A Buffalo.

Schwinden has allowed 13 hits and 11 runs in eight innings this season for the Mets. The 25-year-old will continue to function as organizational depth.
Mon, May 21, 2012 01:52:00 PM

Mets recalled RHP Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Buffalo.

He'll work in long relief, as Jeremy Hefner will replace Miguel Batista (back) in the rotation. Schwinden posted an 11.25 ERA in two starts earlier this season with the Mets.
Sun, May 20, 2012 10:37:00 AM

The Mets have summoned right-hander Chris Schwinden to their taxi squad.

He'll join the active roster if Miguel Batista (back, groin) is placed on the disabled list. Schwinden should only be up for one day, most likely.
Sat, May 19, 2012 04:28:00 PM

Mets optioned RHP Chris Schwinden to Triple-A Buffalo.

He posted an 11.25 ERA after two turns in the rotation to earn the demotion. The Mets haven't said who would take his spot in the rotation next week, but Jeremy Hefner is a likely candidate.
Fri, May 4, 2012 02:26:00 PM

Chris Schwinden was tagged for five runs in four innings by the Astros in a loss Wednesday.

Jeremy Hefner would have been the better choice to move into the Mets rotation in Mike Pelfrey's place, and he'll probably get his opportunity if Schwinden turns in another bad outing next time out. Schwinden has an 11.25 ERA after two turns.
