I just grabbed this from Metsblog.
The Mets announced negotiated an early expiration of Jason Bay’s contract, the team announced.
“Jason has a tremendous work ethic. There was never any question about it,” Sandy Alderson said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the results weren’t there and we are in a results-oriented business. We thank Jason for his efforts and wish him well.”
The agreement grants Bay his unconditional release, and he will be removed from the roster – terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“There’s not a player who tried harder to succeed or was more frustrated and disappointed than Jason himself,” Terry Collins said. “I’ll miss Jason’s presence in the clubhouse as a player, teammate, and person.”
Bay signed a four-year, $66 million contract with the Mets before the 2010 season. He was to earn $16 million in 2013. The team held a $17 million option for 2014 with a $3 million buyout.
And also according to John Heyman, Bay will get his full 2013 salary.
