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.
