Evans Placed on DL, Rhame Optioned to Vegas

The New York Mets announced a flurry of personnel moves on Thursday afternoon with infielder Phillip Evans being placed on the 10-day disabled list, right-hander Jacob Rhame being optioned to Triple-A, third baseman Todd Frazier activated off the DL and the contract of righty Bobby Wahl getting purchased from the Las Vegas 51s.

Evans left the game on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals early with an injury, and has now been diagnosed with a non-displaced tibia fracture according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. Evans is 3-for-21 in limited big league action this season.

Rhame, 25, has pitched to a 8.00 ERA in 18 big leagues innings for the Mets this year with six home runs allowed in that time span.

The veteran Frazier returns to the Mets lineup after being placed on the DL last month with a left rib cage muscle strain. He went 3-for-12 with a homer in four rehab games.

Wahl, acquired in the recent trade with the Oakland Athletics for Jeurys Familia, has been added to the Mets 40-man roster and he will wear No. 61. The 26-year-old has dominated the Pacfific Coast League this year with a 2.20 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, .133 opponents average and 73 strikeouts in 45 innings between Nashville and Las Vegas.
