Former College of the Canyons pitcher Dana Eveland was called up to the Majors with the New York Mets on Sunday.

Former College of the Canyons pitcher Dana Eveland is back in the Major Leagues for the first time since 2012.

After signing a minor league deal with the New York Mets earlier this year, the 30-year-old left-hander was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to Sunday’s Mets game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Eveland didn’t make it into the game as he was likely brought in simply to give New York an extra arm in the bullpen if needed.

His call-up came a day after the Mets played back-to-back 14-inning games against the Phillies, which drained its bullpen.

That would indicate that Eveland’s trip to the Majors might be short-lived.

The Mets optioned outfielder Matt den Dekker to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room on the roster for Eveland.

The last time Eveland pitched in an MLB game was July 13, 2012, which was his final appearance during short stint with the Baltimore Orioles.

He went 0-1 with a 4.73 ERA in 32 1/3 innings in that stretch. Baltimore was the last of seven different teams he’s pitched for in the Majors dating back to 2005.

He spent last season playing professionally for the Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Baseball Organization, where he finished with a 6-14 record, 5.54 ERA and 129 strikeouts in 172 1/3 innings.

So far this season for the Las Vegas 51s, Eveland is 4-1 with a 3.91 ERA in 12 games, eight of them starts, for a total of 46 innings.
