Reliever Steven Register was placed on waivers by the Mets.
“I’ll have to wait to see what happens,” Register said.
If Register clears waivers, he has to be offered back to the Rockies. If they pass, he can be assigned to a Mets’ minor league team.
Mets GM Omar Minaya said he likes Register, but as a Rule 5 pick the team couldn’t afford to carry him for a full season, “unless he can help us immediately.”
Brian Stokes, Joe Smith or Nelson Figueroa are competing for the spot as the seventh reliever.
