Now that the Mets are transitioning to Bobby Parnell as their primary closer trading 38-year-old Jason Isringhausen for a prospect might make sense, but Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that won’t be happening.

According to Rubin the Mets placed Isringhausen on waivers along with fellow impending free agents Scott Hairston and Tim Byrdak, but then pulled all three players back once they were claimed.

That means they aren’t eligible to be traded, but the Mets reportedly did pass through Jason Bay, Chris Capuano, D.J. Carrasco, Willie Harris, and Angel Pagan unclaimed previously.

    Izzy goes FA and the Mets get a draft pick? Or does he qualify for a pick?

      Can’t imagine he’d qualify for draft pick compensation considering how much time he’s missed the past few years.

    Is Hairston going to net any compensation? If not, there’s no sense in the Mets not moving him.

    I thought the team who put a player on waivers and pulled them back after being claimed could work out a trade with the team who claimed the player.

    Perhaps not, getting old.
