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 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.
He was designated for assignment by the Mets earlier in the week and the Dodgers thought he was worth on of their 40-man roster spots. Conlon was assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. He has a 6.58 ERA (5.05 FIP) and 1.54 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 39.2 innings (eight starts) at Triple-A this season, but the Dodgers have had success turning scrap heap lefties into useful big-league relievers.
The Mets needed to open up a spot on their 40-man roster for the addition of Scott Copeland, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, and Conlon was the corresponding roster casualty. Conlon made two starts for the big club this season, allowing seven runs on 12 hits and two walks across 5.2 innings. He'll report to the 51s if he passes through waivers untouched.
