Mets Cut Kyle Farnsworth

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Mets sent down pitcher Kyle Farnsworth on Wednesday to save $750,000 in salary.

Farnsworth was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas after Wednesday night's 4-0 loss to the Yankees.

"Hopefully [I'll]  find a team to play against this team," said Farnsworth, who has the right to refuse the contract. "I'm very bitter right now."

Farnsworth was added to the Mets roster on April 2 and appeared in 19 games for the Mets. He had a 3.18 ERA and three saves in four chances.

"I did a pretty good job for the opportunity I got," he said. "I definitely got a fair opportunity starting from spring training."

Farnsworth signed an advance consent letter before the season, which allowed the Mets to avoid paying his full contract if he was gone before the 45th day he was on the roster.

"I do understand it," the 38-year-old veteran said. "It's sad."
