Blankenhorn DFA’d By Mets – Must Clear Waivers to Return to Syracuse

Pottsville native could be on the move again.

Pottsville native Travis Blankenhorn was designated for assignment by the New York Mets on Wednesday.

Blankenhorn opened the 2022 season with the Syracuse Mets at the Triple-A level. In the team’s Opening Day game, he went 2-for-3 at the plate, with a walk and a strikeout. He was stranded on base after each of his singles in the Mets loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Blankenhorn did not appear in Syracuse’s game on Wednesday.

By designating him for assignment, it removed him from the Mets 40-man roster, clearing a space for former Phillies outfield Travis Jankowski.

Any MLB team can now claim Blankenhorn off waivers. If he clears waivers, he could return to Syracuse and the Mets organization.
