Mets Claim Outfielder Guillermo Heredia

The New York Mets have claimed outfielder Guillermo Heredia from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Heredia was designated for assignment on Monday to make room on the roster for right-handed pitcher Carson Fulmer.

The 29-year-old Heredia was signed as a free agent over the off-season after hitting .225/.306/.363 in 89 games for the Tampa Bay Rays last year. This season for the Pirates, he hit .188/.278/.188 in eight games.

He’s the second outfielder lost today after Jarrod Dyson was dealt to the Chicago White Sox earlier this morning.
