The Mets added right-hander Manny Alvarez to the 40-man roster on Wednesday.

Alvarez, 24, went a combined 6-4 with a 2.17 ERA while appearing at three levels of the Mets minor league system -- Class A St. Lucie, Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Buffalo. The Venezuelan pitcher converted 17 of 21 save chances while logging 78 2/3 innings. He struck out 84, allowed 55 hits, 19 earned runs while walking 12.

The Mets' 40-man roster is full at 40 at the moment.

The deadline for adding players to the 40-man roster to protect them from the Rule 5 draft is Nov. 19. "We'll be taking some players off the roster before then, so we'll have room to add some more guys to the roster," a team official said.
