The Mets assigned Conlon to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Conlon had been attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee after he lost his 40-man spot with the Mets shortly after the 2018 season ended. The left-hander, who made a pair of disastrous spot starts for the big club last season, is expected to serve as rotation depth at Triple-A Syracuse during the upcoming campaign.
Conlon was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday. Conlon spent the majority of the 2018 season at the Triple-A level, appearing in 23 games and posting a 6.55 ERA with 82 punchouts over 114 frames, although those numbers were compiled for the Mets' prior affiliate in Las Vegas. He'll be cast off the 40-man roster heading into the offseason but will get a chance to earn his spot back next spring.
Conlon was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday. Conlon threw a pair of scoreless innings against the Phillies on Tuesday, his only action in his latest big-league stint. He was optioned to make room for Noah Syndergaard (finger), who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
Conlon was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday. Conlon has made a pair of starts for the Mets this season, struggling to a 11.12 ERA and failing to get out of the fourth inning in either game. He's up to take the place of starter Chris Flexen, though whether or not he'll be a member of the Mets' rotation is unclear, with Drew Gagnon set to join the rotation and start Tuesday. Conlon's role could be determined by the availability of Noah Syndergaard (finger), who may or may not be ready to return before the All-Star break.
Conlon was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Conlon was designated for assignment by New York a week ago, but will return to the organization and report to Triple-A Las Vegas after an ultra-brief stint with the Dodgers. Over two starts with the Mets this year, he allowed seven earned runs on 12 hits in just 5.2 innings. He will serve as rotational depth for the club moving forward. In a corresponding move, Phillip Evans was designated for assignment.
