Claimed by Mets
PNew York Mets
January 8, 2021
Tarpley was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Tarpley has received opportunities at the big-league level in each of the last three seasons but has generally failed to impress. In 44.2 total innings, he's struggled to a 6.65 ERA and 1.79 WHIP, with his 13.6 percent walk rate cancelling out his 27.2 percent strikeout rate. If he earns a roster spot with the Mets, it will likely be in a low-leverage role.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Tarpley came to the Pirates as part of the return for Travis Snider and the results have paid dividends. The left-hander went 11-4 with a 2.48 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 105:25 K:BB ratio for Low-A West Virginia. He limited left-handed hitters to a .203/.282/.263 slash line. Tarpley also did better on the road than at home. The 23-year-old went 8-0 with a 1.63 ERA and 1.01 WHIP away from home. Look for Tarpley to take the next step to High-A Bradenton in 2016.
