The Mets have claimed right-handed reliever Heath Hembree off waivers from the Reds, per a membership announcement. Ace Jacob deGrom was transferred from the 10-day injured checklist to the 60-day injured checklist as a way to open a spot on the 40-man roster. The Mets have already been with out deGrom for greater than a month, and he wasn’t anticipated again till September anyhow. He’ll be eligible to return on Sept. 15.
Extra to return.
