Adam Rubin is reporting that the Mets have "begun the process of returning Rule 5 pick Rocky Cherry to the Orioles."
Cherry was a Rule V draft pick in December. Cherry was placed on waivers on Friday, and if he clears, must be offered back to the Orioles for $25,000. If the team, the Orioles in this case, refuse the pay the money, Cherry could stick with the Mets. That would allow him to be sent to the minor leagues within the franchise.
The Mets still have Darren O'Day on the roster, and some Mets officials are very high on the side-armer. He has a pretty good shot at making the Opening Day roster.
Goodbye, Cherry. I'll miss typing your name.
