Three outrighted - Thayer, Alvarez, Pascucci

On the day the Mets annunced Iggy would be released they also outright three to AAA.  Those three can now file for minor league free agency and it gives the Mets three more spots on the 40 man roster with the impending rule five draft approaching.

Outrighted were RHRP Dale Thayer, 1B Val Pascucci and minor league reliever Manny Alvarez.  With those three removed the Mets are now at 41 players with three on the 60 day DL and seven waiting to claim free agency. 

The Mets also assigned first baseman Val Pascucci, right-handed reliever Dale Thayer and reliever Manny Alvarez outright to Class AAA Buffalo. source
