The Mets trimmed their spring training roster by six players on Saturday. Rajai Davis, Adeiny Hechavarria, Carlos Gomez, Devin Mesoraco, Ryan O’Roarke and Hector Santiago have been assigned to minor-league camp.

Mesoraco is understood to be reassessing his options. The Mets have the option of releasing the 30-year-old catcher or moving him to the restricted list.

His reassignment came a day after he went unclaimed by every team, after he exercised the upward mobility clause in his contract.

With O’Roarke and Santiago moved to minor-league camp, Kyle Dowdy could be in line to make the Mets’ Opening Day roster as a seventh reliever.

The Mets are expected to finalize their Opening Day roster in the coming days.
