Conlon, 24, was 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA (18 earned runs/24.0 innings) in five starts for the 51s this year. He's allowed 31 hits, issued seven walks and struck out 21.

Conlon went 8-9 with a 3.38 ERA (51 earned runs/136.0 innings) in 28 games, 22 starts with Binghamton in 2017. The 6-0, 180-pounder was named the Sterling Organization Pitcher of the Year in 2016 when he went a combined 12-2 with a 1.65 ERA (26 earned runs/142.0 innings) between Columbia (A) of the South Atlantic League and St. Lucie (A) of the Florida State League.

Colon was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland before his family moved to California in 1996. He will become the first native of Belfast to play in the majors since Henry "Irish" McIlveen who played from 1906, 1908-1909 with Pittsburgh and the New York Highlanders. Conlon was the Mets 13th-round pick in the 2015 First-Year Player Draft from the University of San Diego.

He is 21-14 with a 2.68 ERA (95 earned runs/319.0 innings) in 74 career minor league games, 50 starts.

DeGrom, who is eligible to come off the Disabled List on Sunday, May 13, is 3-0 with a 1.87 ERA (nine earned runs/43.1 innings) in seven starts for the Mets this season.
