FLUSHING, N.Y., August 17, 2018 – The New York Mets announced today that the club has selected the contract of LHP Daniel Zamora from Binghamton (AA) of the Eastern League and placed RHP Bobby Wahl on the 10-Day Disabled List with a right hamstring strain. Zamora will wear #73 and will be active for tonight’s game at Philadelphia. His first appearance will be his major league debut. To make room on the 40-man roster for Zamora, the Mets transferred Phillip Evans to the 60-Day Disabled List.

Zamora has racked up 69 strikeouts and issued only 16 walks. He is holding lefthanders to a .244 (21-86) mark and righthanders are batting .157 (16-102) against him.
He was acquired from the Pirates along with cash considerations on January 31 earlier this year in exchange for LHP Josh Smoker. Zamora posted a 1.86 ERA (11 earned runs/53.1 innings) with 61 strikeouts in 37 games with Bradenton (A) of the Florida State League last year.

He was named to the mid-season Florida State League All-State team last season.
