The Yankees release Chad Gaudin

Mar 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

Multiple tweets to that effect. He had been placed on waivers the other day and apparently no one has claimed him.  By doing this today, the Yankees only have to pay him 45 days of termination pay — a hair over $700K — as opposed to the full $2.95 million his contract calls for.

Gaudin is not as good as his 11-game stint for the Yankees last year suggested — for his career his is basically a hair below average — but he’s still useful. You have to figure someone will take a flyer on him.  The Mets, maybe?

    The Mets are “discussing” him.
    Lennon doesn’t say with whom they’re discussing him, but. . .
