The 31-year-old, who the Mets acquired from the Angels on Aug. 31 in exchange for Minor League right-hander Erik Manoah, was 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 17 1/3 innings with New York.

Salas' best season came in 2011, when he recorded a career-high 24 saves while helping the Cardinals win the World Series.
