Found October 20, 2011 on Mets Merized Online:
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets have released reliever Ryota Igarashi says a major league source. Igarashi went 5-2 with a 5.74 ERA in two seasons with the Mets after signing a two-year, $3 million deal to play for the team in 2010. Iggy bypasses the typical MLB rules which requires six years of major league service before becoming a free agent. This is because he had a clause in his contract granting him free-agency rights if the two sides could not agree to a new deal before the current deal expired. Sayonara, Iggy.
