Mets Cut Kyle Farnsworth

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."

Mets Place Starting Pitcher Dillon Gee on the DL

Mets Place Starting Pitcher Dillon Gee on the DL

Tony Firriolo/MLB Photos(NEW YORK) -- Just as the New York Mets call up one of their prized pitching prospects, they lose a starting pitcher. The team has announced they've placed Dillon Gee on the disabled list with a strained right lat muscle.

According to Gee, he felt unusual soreness after his last start Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies. He felt the injury worsen when threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

The team hopes that Gee will miss just two starts.

Rookie righthander Jacob deGrom will take Gee's spot in the rotation. The team recently called up rookie Rafael Montero, who will be making his major league debut Wednesday against the New York Yankees.

This is a tough blow for the Mets, as Gee has been the team's most consistent starter this season.

In 8 starts this season, the 28-year-old Gee has gone 3-1 with a 2.73 ERA.
