Mets claim catcher Recker off waivers
Recker, 29, has a .152 average with one homer and four RBIs in 66 career major league at-bats with Oakland and Chicago spanning the past two seasons.
The move gives the Mets one righty-hitting option in spring training, although Recker likely provides depth at Triple-A.
