The Mets have claimed catcher Anthony Recker off waivers from the Cubs.
Recker, 29, played for the A’s and Cubs last season, spending time in both organization’s minor league systems.
He made Oakland’s Opening Day roster and hit .129 in 13 games before being optioned to Triple-A Sacramento.
He was designated for assignment on August 20 and traded to the Cubs the next week.
In 18 at bats with Chicago, he hit just 167 with a home run and four RBI in nine games.
