One Team’s Trash Is Another Team’s… Non-Acquisition

Just confirmed by the Mets: Manny Acosta cleared waivers and assigned to Triple-A. Acosta, Nick Evans, Luis Hernandez, all of whom were rumored targets should they be exposed to waivers, cleared instead.
This doesn’t make them worthless to a team, but it means the Mets weren’t getting anything for them via trade right now, since the 29 other teams didn’t want them for free.
And fortunately for the Mets, who didn’t have a lot of organizational depth, they have three more possibilities to help them over the course of a season.
And lest you think this represents a lack of progress, remember that previous regimes seemed to lose useful pieces in every way possible. Nelson Figueroa and Darren O’Day immediately come to mind.
Meanwhile, John Maine, who was in the 2010 rotation, is getting the opening day start for Colorado’s Triple-A team.
