From the New York Daily News’ Adam Rubin :

A night of reflection led Danny Graves to downplay talk of retirement. Graves, designated for assignment on Tuesday to make room for Trachsel, indicated he was more receptive to accepting a short-term stint at Triple-A Norfolk if he clears waivers tomorrow at 2 p.m. Graves said he hasn’t ruled out declining the assignment and pursuing a free-agent deal elsewhere. “As opposed to yesterday, I’m trying to think more clearly. It might be in my best interest,” Graves said about being a Tide for 10 days and rejoining the Mets afterward
