Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have placed INF/OF Nick Evans, INF Luis Hernandez and LHP Pat Misch on waivers.

Evans probably would have made the Opening Day roster if Carlos Beltran began the year on the disabled list.

Now he'll probably find himself in another organization before the week is through. The results of the waiver process are expected to be known on Wednesday.

Second Base Job Update

According to Adam Rubin of  ESPN NY, Multiple Mets personnel said no decision has been resolved on second base, and the speculation continues to be Brad Emaus or Luis Castillo will emerge as the second baseman, with Daniel Murphy also on the roster.

In response to a report naming Luis Hernandez as Terry Collins' preference, one Mets person said, referring to a Mets infield prospect: "Why did we send [Jordany] Valdespin down?"

The answer: Because evaluations are based on 2010 showings far more so than spring-training showings.

Rubin also mentions he continues to hear Collins would prefer not to have Castillo on the roster.

Mets ready to dump Castillo for Hernandez?

For most of spring we been hearing how Daniel Murphy has almost been granted second base now that Terry Collins is manager. Now we are hearing that Luis Hernandez has been named the front runner for that position.

The New York Post has it that Mets Manager Terry Collins is ready to dump 35-year-old Castillo, who is owed $6 million this season, right off the roster and name 26-year-old Luis Hernandez(notes) as his starter on the second sack.

The paper notes that Collins needs to convince the front office of his decision but that he's "confident he will have final say in the matter after hearing opinions from his coaching staff, general manager Sandy Alderson and special adviser J.P. Ricciardi, among others."

Castillo has asked to be released if the team doesn't plan to start him, the Post reports.

"I know I can still play," Castillo said, according to the paper.

Hernandez is hitting .417 this spring with appearances in six games so far.
