Mets News: Mets Make Trade with Angels to relieve international cap space


Mets News:
Concepcion


The Mets traded outfielder Julio Concepcion and right-hander Andres Perez to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday for a reported $360,500 of the AL West team's cap space for international teenager signings.

Concepcion, 23, had appeared in six games for Brooklyn this season. Perez, 22, had a 5.52 ERA in seven appearances (one start) for Kingsport.

The current collective bargaining agreement limits the amount a team can spend on talent from international locales such as the Dominican Republic and Venezuela, but allows for a team to shift some of its cap space to another team as part of a trade.

Royals add pitching with Rays Shields and Davis, Cost Royals Myers


The Royals continued adding to their rotation last night, acquiring James Shields and Wade Davis from the Rays.

It cost them the game’s top prospect, outfielder Wil Myers, and three others: right-hander Jake Odorizzi, left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard.

It would have taken Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler for the Mets to obtain a similar package to the one the Rays obtained, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports (on Twitter).

Red Sox Trade SS Jed Lowrie and P Kyle Weiland for P Mark Melancon


According to MLBTR.com , the Red Sox acquired reliever Mark Melancon from the Astros for shortstop Jed Lowrie and starter Kyle Weiland, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  ESPN's Jerry Crasnick first tweeted that Weiland was traded in a deal that involved a reliever going to Boston. 

The deal marks the first trade involving major leaguers by Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and Red Sox GM Ben Cherington since taking over their respective roles.

Melancon, 26, turned in a 2.78 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 71 appearances last season.  The right-hander won't be arbitration eligible until after the 2013 season and won't hit free agency until after the 2016 campaign.

NL Wild Card Alert: Braves land CF Michael Bourn from Astros




Braves GM made a splash today by acquiring center fielder Michael Bourn and cash from the Astros for center fielder Jordan Schafer, southpaw Double-A starter Brett Oberholtzer, righty Double-A starter Paul Clemens, and righty Triple-A reliever Juan Abreu. The Astros announced the deal via press release.

None of the three pitchers are top 50 prospects, but they did rank ninth, 26th, and 27th respectively for the Braves on Baseball America's preseason rankings, and the team has a highly-regarded farm system. Oberholtzer, 22, ranked ninth and is seen as a potential third or fourth starter in the big leagues. Clemens and Abreu both have big upside and impressive fastballs.

Braves flirted with the idea of making a trade for Carlos Beltran , but they were not serious about trading top prospects for him.

The Astros on the other hand have one of the worst minor-league organizations in terms of depth and this could help replenish their system
