Angels claim Robert Carson off waivers from Mets

USA TODAY Sports

The left-hander will provide bullpen depth for the Halos in 2014.

The Los Angeles Angels have claimed left-handed pitcher Robert Carson off waivers from the New York Mets, according to ESPNNewYork's Adam Rubin. The Mets recently decided to make Carson available in an effort to clear 40-man roster space in preparation for the offseason.

Carson, 24, posted an 8.24 ERA in fourteen games on the season with the Mets, surrendering nine home runs over 19.2 innings of work. He also appeared in 17 major league games in 2012, and has totaled a 6.82 ERA over 31 career innings at the major league level. In 43 appearances with Triple-A Las Vegas on the year, the reliever was 3-3 with a 4.06 ERA, 7.3 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9 in 44.1 innings.

Carson has one option remaining and will likely provide bullpen depth for the Angels in 2014. He is one of four players to be exiled off of the Mets' 40-man roster on Thursday, joining Greg Burke (outrighted), Sean Henn (outrighted) and Mike Baxter (claimed off waivers by Dodgers).
