Mets recall Yoan López, option Khalil Lee to Triple-A Syracuse

The New York Mets made a couple of roster moves before Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field.

The team recalled reliever Yoan López from Triple-A Syracuse. To make room for him on the 26-man roster, outfielder Khalil Lee was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.

López appeared in two games with New York earlier this season, allowing three runs over three innings while striking out four. His last appearance with the big-league club was May 1. The right-hander has a 5.40 ERA over 15 innings at Triple-A this season.

Lee appeared in just two games with the Mets after he was called up on June 8. In the second game, he crushed his first Major League home run. The 23-year-old prospect is hitting .221 with four homers and 15 RBIs over 34 games at Triple-A this season.
