Rumor Mill: Dickey Trade Done Deal?


Rumor Mill:

The Mets and Blue Jays have agreed in principle to trade that will send Dickey to the Blue Jays, Ken Rosenthal reports (on Twitter).

The deal is contingent on Toronto being able to work out a contract extension with Dickey and they'll have a negotiating window of 72 hours, expiring Tuesday at 1pm CST (Twitter link).

The deal was said to be a three-for-four swap with Dickey, Josh Thole, and a prospect going to Toronto for Travis d'Arnaud, Noah Syndergaard, John Buck, and a prospect.  Neither prospect is expected to be of exceptionally high quality.

Many other teams had interest in trading for Dickey. Every AL East team checked in on him, and the Royals, Rangers, Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Nationals and Angels were also interested at various points during the off-season.

The Mets' Acquire Catcher Kelly Shoppach


The New York Mets have acquired 32-year old catcher Kelly Shoppach from the Boston Red Sox for a player to be named later. Shoppach is hitting .250, with five homers and 17 RBI this season. He has spent his entire eight year career in the American League having stints with Tampa Bay, Cleveland, and twice with the Red Sox. It will be interesting to see how he fairs in the National League. Josh Thole has been struggling this year, and the Mets are in dying need of a catcher. It was only in 2008 when Shoppach blasted a career high 21 home runs with Cleveland. Look for Rob Johnson to be sent down to Triple-A, but he could be called back up when the rosters expand in 18 days. If Shoppach can provide half of what he did in 2008, then this trade is a win.

Mets get a couple of arms for K-Rod (Trade finally completed)


Daniel Ray Herrera
The Mets on Thursday selected right-hander Adrian Rosario and left-hander Daniel Ray Herrera from the Brewers to complete the teams' mid-July trade for reliever Francisco Rodriguez.

Rosario is a mid-level prospect who throws hard and was selected by Baltimore in the last Rule 5 Draft, but ultimately returned to Milwaukee. He struggled as a starter at Advanced Class A Brevard County, with a 5.83 ERA in 14 starts and two relief appearances, and was sent back down to Class A Wisconsin to pitch in relief, the role he had filled in 2010, and struck out 42 batters in 33 2/3 innings. He turns 22 on Sept. 30.

Alderson makes it official, Beltran and Cash to Giants For Pitching Prospect Zach Wheeler


The Mets officially announced Thursday morning that they had traded right fielder Carlos Beltran, along with cash, to the San Francisco Giants for Zack Wheeler, a right-handed minor league pitcher.

In a conference call Thursday afternoon, General Manager Sandy Alderson provided insight into the deal, which in the short term will hinder the Mets’ chances for a playoff berth.

In the long term, however, the deal brightens the Mets’ future with a highly regarded prospect described by Alderson as a “high end talent” with “top end potential.”

Though he declined to reveal the specifics of his negotiations with other teams, Alderson said talks heated up Monday with a number of clubs. The Giants came to the Mets with an offer Tuesday that they were pleased to accept.

“We were looking for big upside,” Alderson said. “We could have gotten a package of three players, from a number of clubs, but the overall potential of those players would not have equaled Zack’s potential. In that way, we sacrificed a little bit of diversification for top-end potential.”

Alderson also addressed to an extent the notion that Beltran, despite interest from teams like the Texas Rangers and the Boston Red Sox, would have refused to switch to the American League. Beltran had a no-trade clause in his contract.

Rumors becoming reality, Beltran on the verge to Giants for Wheeler


All the rumors are becoming reality.....According to the NY Times, the Mets and the San Francisco Giants are on the verge of completing a trade that will send Carlos Beltran and cash to the Giants in exchange for a top prospect who is likely to be Zack Wheeler, a right-handed pitcher taken in the first round of the 2009 draft.

The Mets get the 6-foot-3 Wheeler, 21, is in his second season of minor league ball. He is 7-5 this season with a 3.99 earned run average for the Class A San Jose Giants.

In recent days, teammates of Beltran and staff members of the Mets had become increasingly convinced that San Francisco would be Beltran’s destination, at least in part because he seemed very open to playing there. And where Beltran wanted to play was important because he had a full no-trade clause in his contract and thus had the right to veto any deal he did not like.

Alderson today swapped a former Mets first-round pick, Eddie Kunz, for a former first-round pick from his old franchise, San Diego farmhand Allan Dykstra (no relation to Lenny)
.
Kunz debuted in the majors in 2008, one year after he was drafted. But he bottomed out in recent campaigns, spending all of 2010 at Double A with a 5.34 ERA.

Dykstra, a 23-year-old first baseman, homered 16 times and posted an .810 on-base plus slugging percentage in high Class-A ball last season.
