Billy Wagner was reportedly picked off waivers on Friday by the Boston Red Sox. The Mets and the Red Sox had three days, until 1 p.m. on Tuesday, to work out a deal.
From all the reports that have come out since then, it seems unlikely he will be traded.
Ken Rosenthal, who was the first to report the waiver claim, writes that the conditions asked for by Wagner are unlikely to be accepted by the Sox. Wagner has asked the Sox to guarantee they would not pick up his option so that he can become a free agents in 2010 without restrictions.
Wagner also asked the Sox not to offer him salary arbitration.
Wagner has a full no-trade clause, but said he would waive it if these conditions were met.
Still, the Mets and Sox have until 1 p.m. Tuesday to work out a possible deal.
