Carlyle DFA'd to clear Niese spot
By Adam Rubin
SAN DIEGO -- The Mets have designated right-handed reliever Buddy Carlyle for assignment to clear the roster spot for Monday's activation of Jonathon Niese from the disabled list.
Carlyle, 36, has produced a 1.29 ERA in five major league appearances this season.
He also was outrighted to Las Vegas on June 7 after clearing waivers. That time, Carlyle accepted the assignment to Triple-A.
