Blue Jays Claim Mets Prospect Shawn Bowman Off Waivers
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NewYork, third base prospect Shawn Bowman, who had been designated for assignment, has been claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Bowman had a solid season after coming back from injuries last season, batting .294 with nine homers and 44 RBI in 347 at-bats with Double-A Binghamton.
Bowman, 25, was originally drafted by the Mets in the 12th round in 2002 out of British Columbia.
Rubin also notes that, RHP Clint Everts, who had also been removed from the 40-man roster when Raul Valdes was promoted, cleared waivers and will return to Binghamton.
Ironically, Bowman probably was a better overall hitter than Mike Jacobs, the player that replaced him on the 40 man roster.
