Daniel Herrera clears waivers, will remain with the Mets in 2012


Left-hander Daniel Herrera has cleared waivers and will remain with the Mets according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com

It turns out that Herrera did not have the right to declare free agency once he passed through waivers.

The Mets are concerned Herrera's effectiveness will decrease as NL East batters become more familiar with his screwball.

They privately cite Herrera's numbers swooning against NL Central teams, who were familiar with him because of his longtime association with the Cincinnati Reds.

Players that have cleared waivers and can be traded (barring a no-trade clause)


Here are some the players who cleared waivers. Once a player clears waivers, he can be traded to any team (barring a no-trade clause).

David DeJesus, Athletics - DeJesus has had a rough year but could at least be useful against right-handed pitching.

Hideki Matsui, Athletics - The Athletics have several waiver trade candidates, and Matsui's hot second half and low salary (owed less than $2MM the rest of the season) could make him a popular target.

Jason Bay, Mets - With Bay being owed at least $38.8MM through 2013, this was expected. It's only been 12 games, but Bay is at least having his first good month of 2011.

D.J. Carrasco, Mets - The Mets signed Carrasco to a two-year deal in December - their biggest acquisition of the offseason - but optioned him to Triple-A in April. He stayed there until mid-June.

Willie Harris, Mets - The versatile Harris has less than $200K left on his contract.

Angel Pagan, Mets - It's been a dismal year for Pagan, who may be in line for a non-tender after the season.

Chris Capuano, Mets - Capuano owns a 3.74 SIERA as of August 14th and earns only $1.5MM plus incentives, so it's hard to see why a few teams didn't place claims.

Let's Make a deal: Jason Bay, Chris Capuano, DJ Carrasco, Willie Harris, and Angel Pagan clear waivers


According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  Jason Bay,  Chris Capuano,  D.J. Carrasco, Willie Harris and  Angel Pagan have cleared waivers, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

That does not mean any of the players will get traded. It merely mean they are eligible to be traded to any of the other 29 teams this month.

Bay is only in the second season of a four-year, $66 million deal, so going unclaimed makes sense. If a team would have put in a claim, the Mets could just have unloaded Bay's contract on the other team by letting the claim go through. Similarly, but with far less money at stake, Carrasco is in the first season of a two-year, $2.4 million deal.
