Hernandez, Evans clear waivers

Mets infielder Luis Hernandez has cleared waivers and has three days to decide whether or not to accept a Minor League assignment.

Hernandez plans to meet with Mets manager Terry Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson after Wednesday’s game to discuss his options. He said he will only accept a Minor League assignment if he has a chance to play every day in the Minors, but Ruben Tejada and Justin Turner may block his ability to do so at Triple-A.

“I want to play every day,” Hernandez said. “That’s the only way I can improve.”

Still no word on Nick Evans, whose waiver status remains on clear.

*****UPDATE, 2:53 p.m.: Evans has also cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Buffalo. Because this is his first outright assignment, he did not have the right of refusal.
