The New York Mets activated right-hander Trevor Gott and called up outfielder DJ Stewart on Tuesday, hours ahead of their road game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix

In corresponding moves, the Mets optioned right-hander Jeff Brigham and infielder Danny Mendick to Triple-A Syracuse

Right-hander Denyi Reyes was designated for assignment to make room for Gott on the 40-man roster.

The Mets acquired Gott as part of a three-player trade with the Seattle Mariners on Monday

Gott, 30, is 0-3 with a 4.03 ERA in 30 relief appearances this season. He was in his first season in Seattle after stints with four other teams. He’s 16-13 with a 4.70 ERA in 221 career relief appearances.

Stewart, 29, played the last five seasons in Baltimore, appearing in just three games in 2022. He’s a career .213 hitter with 26 home runs and 73 RBIs in 195 major league games (152 starts).

Brigham, 31, is 0-2 with a 5.16 ERA in 32 relief appearances this season.
