The New York Mets have released third base prospect Eudor Garcia. He was playing for the St. Lucie Mets and catcher Anthony Dimino was activated in the corresponding move.

Garcia, 23, missed the start of the season due to a personal issue. In five games this season for St. Lucie he was 5 for 14 with three RBI.

The former fourth round pick back in 2014 out of El Paso Community College also missed a large portion of the 2016 season due to an 80-game after testing positive for banned substances bumetanide and furosemide.

The once promising corner infield prospect finishes his Mets career with a .285/.337/.415 slash line in 222 games.
