A day after the Red Sox won the World Series, the Mets sent seven players to the free agent list. These players include David Aardsma, Tim Byrdak, Pedro Feliciano, Frank Francisco, Aaron Harang, LaTroy Hawkins and Daisuke Matsuzaka.
The Mets formally activated their seven players on the 60-day DL, where they were not counting against the 40-man roster. Those players are Ike Davis, Josh Edgin, Matt Harvey, Jeremy Hefner, Jenrry Mejia, Bobby Parnell and Scott Rice.
With Mike Baxter and Robert Carson getting claimed off waivers, the Mets' 40-man roster currently stands at 36. The Mets will shed another member of the 40-man roster once Johan Santana's 2014 option is declined.
