Mets Release Marcum

The Mets have announced, via their Twitter account, that they have released RHP Shaun Marcum.

This move will save them roughly $1 million tied to a roster bonus in his contract. It will also open a spot on the team’s 40-man roster.

Marcum was 1-10 with a 5.29 ERA and 1.35 WHIP, and was expected to be out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
