The New York Mets drafted right-handed pitcher Corey Oswalt in the seventh round of the 2012 Major League Baseball Draft. Of the players taken by the Mets in that draft, the only noteworthy selections were Kevin Plawecki and Tomas Nido. All three pitchers taken by the Mets ahead of Oswalt have been colossal busts. One pitcher taken a few rounds later, Paul Sewald, enjoyed some success in his stints with the club. Oswalt made it to the big club but has never spent much time in a Mets uniform.
The New York Mets were originally planning to start Taijuan Walker in Wednesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, but ended up scratching him hours before the contest.

The Mets have designated right-handed pitcher Corey Oswalt and catcher Ali Sánchez for assignment to make room on their 40-man roster for new acquisitions Albert Almora Jr. and Khalil Lee, respectively. Both Oswalt and Sánchez will be exposed to waivers as a result. Drafted by the Mets back in 2012,...
Oswalt was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. The right-hander had a 4.85 ERA and 11:2 K:BB over 13 innings for the Mets in 2020, but he won't be on the 40-man roster entering spring training. Oswalt should still be invited to New York's big-league spring training, assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers.
