The Mets released Duaner Sanchez this morning. The reliever was in trouble since the start of camp. Sanchez faded down the stretch last year when it mattered most. However in the offseason he got a 128% pay raise to avoid arbitration. General manager Omar Minaya said that Sanchez was released now so the team could get a better look at some other bullpen candidates.
