PITTSBURGH (AP) - The New York Mets recalled D.J. Carrasco from Triple-A Buffalo and optioned Dale Thayer on Sunday in a swap of right-handers for the bullpen.

Carrasco was working primarily as a starter in Triple-A, going 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in nine games. Mets manager Terry Collins said he would serve as the team’s long man.

Carrasco was on New York’s opening day roster, going 0-1 with a 5.91 ERA in eight games before being optioned April 24.

Thayer was 0-1 in four appearances, allowing five hits and two runs in four innings.
