Chris Schwinden's winding road has taken him back to where he began.

Five weeks after the Mets lost Schwinden off waivers to Toronto, he was reclaimed by the Mets off waivers. He also made intermediate stops with the Indians and Yankees. That's four waiver claims in a month.

Schwinden has been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.

The Mets reclaimed Schwinden off waivers from the Yankees on Thursday. A 40-man roster spot opened with left-hander Justin Hampson being designated for assignment Wednesday.

Schwinden made a combined five Triple-A starts for Las Vegas (Toronto), Columbus (Cleveland) and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Yankees).

• The Mets have released left-hander Chuck James from Triple-A Buffalo, the southpaw tweeted.
