CHICAGO – Catcher Anthony Recker, who was designated for assignment by the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, was claimed by the New York Mets on Thursday.

The Cubs designated Recker to make room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Carlos Gutierrez, who the Cubs claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.

In addition to losing Recker, the Cubs also outrighted four players to Triple-A Iowa: infielder Adrian Cardenas, as well as right-handers Miguel Socolovich, Jason Berken and Marcos Mateo. All four are now off the 40-man roster.
