The New York Mets Minor League farm system was ranked 6th in Major League Baseball coming into this season and the team has a lot of depth at multiple positions. With 4 players being called up last week, one player felt left out.
The Mets granted Opening Day B-Mets First Baseman Matt Clark his release yesterday. The 27 year old led the team this year with 46 RBI and had 10 homers through the first 67 games of the season. Clark hit a .297 batting average with a .380 on-base.
Clark wants to explore more options in other organizations and maybe get a shot at Triple A.
Jayce Boyd will now step in and become the every day First Baseman with the DH coming from other players down the bench.
