Mark Payton: Hits free agency

Payton was non-tendered by the Mets on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Payton was acquired by the Mets from Cincinnati in late July, and he remained at the Triple-A level the rest of the season. He hit well during his time in the minors with the Mets and had an .862 OPS in 40 games, but he struggled in the big leagues prior to the trade, going 4-for-22 with seven strikeouts.

Reds' Mark Payton: Dismissed from 40-man roster

The Reds designated Payton for assignment Monday. Payton will cede his spot on the 40-man roster to reliever Edgar Garcia, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old posted a solid-but-unspectacular .281/.331/.446 slash line at Louisville this season and was behind all of Nick Castellanos, Jesse Winker, Nick Senzel, Tyler Naquin, Shogo Akiyama and Aristides Aquino in the Reds' outfield pecking order, so the organization's decision to drop him from the roster isn't overly surprising.
