NEW YORK (AP) - Gary Sheffield is staying with the New York Mets. Billy Wagner, however, could soon be headed to another team.

Sheffield and general manager Omar Minaya confirmed Friday that they met the previous day to discuss the outfielder's status. Minaya told Sheffield another club had placed a waiver claim on him, but the GM pulled Sheffield back off waivers rather than let him go or work out a deal to trade him.

Minaya wouldn't reveal which club wanted Sheffield, but the GM said he decided the Mets weren't offered enough in return to make a trade worthwhile.

Also on Friday, several reports said a team placed a waiver claim on Wagner - and more than one report indicated the team was Boston.
