Update: Tobi Stoner and Jason Pridie have been designated for assignment. Of course, if another team isn’t willing to incorporate either of these players on its team, the Mets can send them down to the minors.
Andy McCullough and Adam Rubin have reported on twitter that Scott Hairston’s deal with the Mets is a major-league deal (so he’s looking like the official 4th outfielder for the team).
The more important news here to me is that with Young and Hairston signed, the Mets need to clear two spots off the 40-man roster. Terry Collins says Ollie and Castillo and safe (UGH!) and will be in spring training…so who will be the two players left at the altar?
Take your pick from the 40-man here!
