The Mets aren’t making phone calls and saying, “We’re looking to dump Scott Schoeneweis and Jorge Sosa, you interested?’’
That said, they have let it be known both can be obtained.
Schoeneweis is owed $7.2 million on the remainder of his contract and Sosa will make $2 million this season. It’s a minor salary dump. The Mets like Rule 5 pick Steve Register, but would have to keep him on their roster all season.
That means somebody would have to go.
Sosa has more value because he can work as both a starter and reliever, but I wouldn’t lose sleep over either.
