Adam Rubin at The New York Daily News writes about the release of Jorge Sosa and the Mets trying to trade Aaron Heilman:
The Mets placed reliever Jorge Sosa on unconditional release waivers after failing to trade him. Sosa was designated for assignment on May 13.
The buzz among scouts is that the Mets are shopping Aaron Heilman. Of course, they're looking for a set-up man - something hard to find. Heilman's struggles continued yesterday. He inherited a 4-1 deficit, walked his first batter, Mark Teixeira, then surrendered a two-run homer to Brian McCann before recording an out.
"It seems like every mistake he makes is hurting him," said Tom Glavine, a friend who regularly golfed with Heilman the past few years before going back to the Braves as a free agent. "Sooner or later it will turn. It seems like the time I spent there with him he was never quick out of the gate anyway. Then the second half of the year he seemed to iron things out."
