Late Arrivals

Met roster genius Jason writes in to point out that Carlos Muniz’s arrival with the Mets, while late in the season, isn’t the latest in history.

His addition to the 40-man roster Sept. 19 is the 3rd-latest ever made: In 1973, the Mets added reliever Bob L. Miller 30 to the 40 on Sept. 23. But the latest arrival to the 40 was Doc Medich 22, claimed off waivers from Seattle on Sept. 26, 1977.

Muniz has yet to appear for the Mets, and there’s no guarantee he will, but if he does he’ll place somewhere in the list below of latest-debuting Mets of all time, again courtesy of Jason:
