Mets won’t be trading Jason Isringhausen or Scott Hairston

Now that the Mets are transitioning to Bobby Parnell as their primary closer trading 38-year-old Jason Isringhausen for a prospect might make sense, but Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that won’t be happening.

According to Rubin the Mets placed Isringhausen on waivers along with fellow impending free agents Scott Hairston and Tim Byrdak, but then pulled all three players back once they were claimed.

That means they aren’t eligible to be traded, but the Mets reportedly did pass through Jason Bay, Chris Capuano, D.J. Carrasco, Willie Harris, and Angel Pagan unclaimed previously.
