Steven Register, the Rule V draft pick from the Colorado Rockies, has been placed on waivers, according to Adam Rubin.
Register could have stuck around if Duaner Sanchez is unable to go, so this seems like the Mets are more willing to stick with a guy like Joe Smith, who has come on strong lately. Also in contention for spots in the bullpen are Brian Stokes and Nelson Figueroa.
I liked to think Register would have been good, had he gotten a chance. He just didn't seem to fit in the already crowded bullpen, so he's one of the odd men out. I wish we could keep him around in AAA, but he's a Rule V pick, and he'll be heading elsewhere.
Mets Blog is reporting that Ruben Gotay has also been placed on waivers, but I can't find that being backed up anywhere. Stay tuned.
