Alay Soler, Javy Lopez Released

A couple of guys were released recently, but one should find work shortly. 

The Mets released Cuban defector Alay Soler, who did not fit into their rotation plans but was making decent money. Soler, apparently 28, has only made 12 pro starts in this country.  It was a cost-cutting move, as Soler would’ve made $620K at Triple A.  Seems odd for the Mets to be cutting costs.  He looked strong at Double A and below and would be a fine fit with the Nationals.

Javy Lopez was released yesterday by the Rockies.  He seems likely to retire unless the Braves will have him.  This should open the door for Chris Iannetta to get 400+ ABs.
