CHICAGO -- Their bullpen no longer overworked after three consecutive extra-inning games last weekend, the Mets moved back to a five-man bench following Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Cubs. To do so they designated veteran right-hander Buddy Carlyle for assignment and recalled outfielder Andrew Brown from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Pitching in the Majors for the first time in three years, Carlyle gave the Mets four scoreless innings in two appearances. The Mets chose to designate him over Dana Eveland, who is serving as the third left-hander in the bullpen.

Brown was batting .359 with 13 home runs in 36 games for Las Vegas. He appeared in 10 games for the Mets earlier this season.
