Carlyle was released by the Mets on Friday. The Mets released the 38-year-old with over a week remaining before Opening Day so that he would have a chance to catch on with another team, but even if that happens, he'll likely occupy a low-leverage role in a mediocre bullpen.
Carlyle (hip) signed a minor league contract with the Mets on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. The 37-year-old Carlyle pitched in just 11 games last season due to multiple injuries, and he'll now have to earn a spot back on the Mets 25-man roster in Spring training. The veteran pitched well for the Mets over 27 games in 2015, but posted a 5.63 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with the club last season.
