Mets 40 Roster Starts to Fill

The crunch on the 40-man roster has started today as the Mets have activated 7 players from the 60-Day DL back to the 40-man. The following players were activated:

  1. Ike Davis
  2. Josh Edgin
  3. Matt Harvey
  4. Jeremy Hefner
  5. Jenry Mejia
  6. Bobby Parnell
  7. Scott Rice

This should be evened out by the seven free agents the Mets are about to lose off of the 40-man:

  1. David Aardsma
  2. Tim Byrdak
  3. Pedro Feliciano
  4. Frank Francisco
  5. Aaron Harang
  6. LaTroy Hawkins
  7. Daisuke Matsuzaka

The Mets would like to get Hawkins back and the Mets will probably drop some players on the 40-man. The Mets created some room on the 40-man by outrighting Greg Burke and Sean Henn. In addition Baxter was claimed by the Dodgers and Carson by the Angels.

This will probably be enough to create room to add key players to the 40 man from the farm system to protect them in the Rule V draft but I wouldn’t be surprised to see more players go to create more room on the 40-man.
