Mets claim Anthony Recker off waivers from Cubs

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Recker had been DFA'd by the Cubs on Wednesday.

The New York Mets have claimed catcher Anthony Recker off of waivers from the Chicago Cubs, reports Anthony DiComo of MLB.com:

Recker was designated for assignment Wednesday to make room on the Cubs’ roster for right-hander Carlos Gutierrez, whom the club picked up on waivers from the Twins. The Cubs had acquired Recker from the Athletics in late August in a swap for catcher Blake Lalli.

The 29-year-old backstop has appeared in twenty-seven big league games over the last two seasons, hitting just .152/.282/.242 with one home run in seventy-nine plate appearances with the A’s and Cubs.

Recker hit .261/.352/.437 with ten home runs in fifty-nine games between Double- and Triple-A this season. The catcher is unlikely to play much of a role with the Mets, but he should provide them with some depth at the minor-league level.
