It must be “Trim The Fat Day” for the Mets.
Today, they designated Wilson Valdez for assignment, and cut four players from Triple-A Buffalo. Two of those players, Wily Mo Pena and Javier Valentin, were discussed earlier today.
In a press release about the other moves, the Mets announced they also released Connor Robertson and Bobby Kielty from the Buffalo Bisons.
Robertson came over from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the Scott Schoeneweis trade and the Mets signed Kielty to a minor league contract before spring training begin.
Happy trails, Pena, Valentin, Kielty and Robertson.
