The New York Mets have outrighted Kyle Farnsworth to Triple-A Las Vegas just two days after he served as their closer.
Farnsworth has the right to refuse the assignment, which it seems as though he will.
"Hopefully find a team to play against this team," the reliever said. "I'm very bitter right now."
The Mets saved a significant amount of money by cutting Farnsworth loose now.
His original deal with the Mets was for $1 million, so by getting rid of him now, the Mets save about $750,000.
"I do understand it," he said. "It's sad."
