Blankenhorn Clears Waivers, Returns to Syracuse Mets

Pottsville native is back in the starting lineup Saturday.

Pottsville native Travis Blankenhorn has cleared the Major League Baseball waiver wire and returned to the Syracuse Mets.

Pottsville native Travis Blankenhorn has cleared the Major League Baseball waiver wire and returned to the Syracuse Mets.

The Mets sent Blankenhorn on an outright assignment to their Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse.

Syracuse is where Blankenhorn started the 2022 season on Tuesday, going 2-for-3 in an Opening Day loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Following that game, he was taken off the Mets 40-man roster to start their season and Designated for Assignment.

Any MLB team had a chance to claim Blankenhorn off waivers. If they did, the Mets would have to pay his salary when he was put on his new team’s 40-man roster.

That didn’t happen so the Pottsville Area High School grad and former draft pick of the Minnesota Twins is back in Syracuse.

And he’s back in the starting lineup as the Syracuse Mets once again take on the RailRiders. He’ll be batting second and playing 2nd base in the field for Saturday’s 6:35 p.m. first pitch.
Syracuse is 0-4 to start the 2022 season. New York is 2-0.
