Mets Lay Off 10 Percent Of Non-Player Workforce

An article by posted on November 4, 2011

The NY Post is reporting that the Mets have trimmed nearly 10 percent of non-player staff, including business, clubhouse and scouting personne.

The team has released the following statement:

“Several weeks ago, we made workforce reductions in both the baseball and business operations departments, which amounted to less than 10 percent of our full-time staff.”

The layoffs are another ominous sign for the Mets, who are seeking to cap their payroll at $100 million to $110 million. They’re now fighting to keep shortstop Jose Reyes on the team after he became a free agent yesterday.

A team source said the layoffs will have no effect on player payroll.
