Marlon Anderson Rumors

Mets Do Not Offer Arb To Any Free Agents

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post (via Twitter) reports that, as, expected, the Mets will not offer arbitration to any of their remaining free agents --- Carlos DelgadoGary Sheffield, Fernando Tatis, or Elmer Dessens.  Delgado and Tatis are Type B free agents, while Sheffield and Dessens are unranked. 

Hubbuch also tweets that New York is interested in re-signing Delgado to a one-year deal to keep first base occupied while prospect Ike Davis continues to develop.

Mets DFA Marlon Anderson

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports that the Mets have designated infielder-outfielder Marlon Anderson for assignment.  The move was neccessary in order to clear roster space for fifth starter Livan Hernandez, who will start Saturday night against the Marlins.

Anderson, 35, was hitless in four at-bats for the Mets this season.  He hit .208/.236/.245 during spring training.

Odds And Ends: Hudson, Alvarez, Anderson

Marlon Anderson May Be Released

According to Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News, Marlon Anderson's final game with the Mets may be tonight.  The team will need the roster spot for Livan Hernandez, who makes his Mets debut tomorrow.  If the Mets release Anderson, they'll have to assume his $1.15MM salary for '09 (minus $400K if he signs elsewhere).

Anderson, 35, hit just .210/.255/.275 in 151 plate appearances last year while appearing at left field and first base.  60 of those PAs came as a pinch-hitter, but Anderson did not fare well.  He did well in a very limited sample in '07, but it's unclear why Omar Minaya gave him a two-year contract that winter.
