New York Mets Roster Moves 2012: Chris Schwinden Claimed Off Waivers From New York Yankees

Right-handed pitcher Chris Schwinden has been a traveling man for the past month. On Thursday, the New York Mets made his travels a circuitous route.

The Mets announced Thursday that they have claimed Schwinden off waivers from the New York Yankees, bringing the 25-year-old back to the organization for which he began his busy season.

Since being designated for assignment by the Mets on June 1, Schwinden has bounced around the Major Leagues from the Toronto Blue Jays, to the Cleveland Indians, to the Yankees, and now back to New York.

Schwinden was 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA over three starts with the Mets earlier this season. He has only pitched in the minors since leaving the Mets, and will begin his second stint with the Mets organization in Triple-A.
