Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd has been claimed off waivers by an unknown team sources said and the Mets could try to trade him. With his low salary ($700000) and surperb season it is likely he was claimed by multiple teams but only the first eligible will have a chance t trade for him. That would most likely be a National League team. Byrd is having a resurgent season after a dreadful ine last year with 21 home runs 71 RBI and a .285 atting average. Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reported the Mets may look to trade Byrd catcher John Buck and reluever Pedro Feliciano and perhaps others with lnger contracts in the wake of the Matt Harvey injury news.
