Reclaimed by the Mets, P.J. Conlon thanked the Dodgers for his four-day stint with a great tweet
For many ballplayers, especially those seeking to find a firm footing in the Majors, uncertainty is everywhere.
Lefty P.J. Conlon made history earlier this season as the first Irish-born player in the big leagues since 1945 when the Mets called him up for his Major League debut. Conlon was DFA'd, though, after two starts, and was claimed by the Dodgers on June 2.
He was excited for this new chapter in his life:
A huge thank you to the Mets organization for everything over the past few years, especially the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in the Major Leagues. I’m excited for this next chapter with the #Dodgers and can’t wait to get started!— PJ Conlon (@pjconlon29) June 2, 2018
On Tuesday, Conlon found everything upended once again when he was claimed off waivers from the Dodgers ... by the Mets.
Yes, the Mets, the club that sent him on this journey in the first place.
So what did he do rather than craft another heartfelt tweet? He did this:
Brilliantly done, P.J.
