Evans, Misch and Hernandez Clear Waivers
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, outfielder/first baseman Nick Evans has officially cleared waivers, and was sent to Triple-A. Evans was waived after losing out on a bench spot to Daniel Murphy, Willie Harris and Scott Hairston.
Pat Misch and Luis Hernandez also cleared waivers.
Original Post 3/28
This just in from Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:
The Mets placed Nick Evans, Luis Hernandez and Pat Misch on waivers Monday, according to a baseball official who was not authorized to speak publicly because the process is secretive.
The results of the waiver process should be known Wednesday.
Manny Acosta is the lone Met in a tenuous position who is out of options and may not have been placed on waivers Monday, according to the source. Acosta seemingly is the third combatant in the battle with Blaine Boyer and Jason Isringhausen for one relief spot.
The Padres had appeared interested in Hernandez via trade, but reportedly just acquired Alberto Gonzalez from Washington instead.
I thought for sure the Mets would figure out a way to somehow keep Evans and Misch, but it looks like they’ll be toiling for another team. It’s looking like Manny Acosta could suffer the same fate.
This would mean Daniel Murphy is officialy on the 25 man roster, and that the last bullpen spot is now down to Blaine Boyer or Jason isringhausen.
Earlier today, one of the beat writers said via Twitter that Boyer was summoned into the managers office. It could have something to do with his status with the team, or Collins simply could have wanted directions to a good hamburger joint.
