Needing to clear 40-man roster spots for the additions of lefty-hitting backup outfielder Mike Baxter and long man/spot starter Miguel Batista, the Mets have placed right-handers Josh Stinson and Armando Rodriguez on outright waivers, a major league source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Stinson, 24, appeared in 14 games for the Mets last September, going 0-2 with a 6.92 ERA. He previously had made 13 starts for Triple-A Buffalo, during which he went 3-7 with a 7.44 ERA.

Rodriguez, 24, was 4-4 with a 3.96 ERA in 16 starts for Class A St. Lucie last season. He made his season debut May 28 after opening the season inactive with an oblique strain.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
