Mets | Kyle Farnsworth refuses outright assignment

Updating a previous item, New York Mets RP Kyle Farnsworth refused an outright assignment to the minor leagues Wednesday, May 14, and elected free agency instead. "Hopefully find a team to play against this team," Farnsworth said. "I'm very bitter right now." The Mets saved around $750,000 by cutting Farnsworth now, since the signed an advance letter of consent before the year, allowing the team to avoid paying his full contract if he was gone before the 45th day he was on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Jeurys Familia is now considered the favorite to take over the vacant closer role for New York, with Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jose Valverded looming as possibilities if he falters. Familia should now be owned in all leagues.
