The Mets trimmed their spring training roster more as Opening Day gets closer by the day, and RHP Jordan Yamamoto being sent to Triple-A was the highlight of the announcement by the team.

Yamamoto has been vying for a spot in the starting rotation, owning a solid 1.08 ERA in 8.1 innings this spring.

However, with David Peterson named the No. 4 starter by Luis Rojas and Yamamoto heading to Triple-A, the way has been paved for Joey Lucchesi to round out the rotation with the fifth starter job.

Other than Yamamoto, RHP Corey Oswalt, INF Brandon Drury, and C Bruce Maxwell were all reassigned by New York.
