Lefty Carson claimed by Angels
By Adam Rubin
Left-hander Robert Carson's tenure with the Mets has ended.
Carson, 24, was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Angels.
The Mets also removed relievers Greg Burke and Sean Henn from the 40-man roster.
Carson allowed nine homers in 19 2/3 innings at the major league level this season while compiling an 8.24 ERA. He was sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas after an Aug. 28 appearance, ostensibly to help the Pacific Coast League team in the playoffs, but suffered two losses in the first-round series and was not recalled in September.
Henn has the right to declare free agency, while Burke will become a free agent after the World Series.
