Mets News and Notes: Gone to Cincinnati, Santana's Status, Hairston Trade?, Cecchini, Mejia

Mets News and Notes:

The Mets traveled to Cincinnati after yesterday's game and are off today. The three-game series opens Tuesday at 7:10 p.m. at Great American Ball Park, with Chris Young (3-6, 4.87 ERA) opposing right-hander Mat Latos (10-3, 3.81). The Mets also make a stop in Washington during the two-city trip.

"A six-game road trip against the best team in the Central and the best team in the East," Terry Collins said. "Certainly a tough task."

Collins reiterated Johan Santana will be fine to start Friday's game in Washington. “He's had one start after being out a month -- or three weeks. Any conversations we have about the future, they're down the road,” Collins said pregame Sunday. “They’re not going to be right now. Again, I think Johan’s shoulder is fine. We’ll take a look after a few more starts and decide how he’s feeling… -- is there any more fatigue setting in? But, right now, according to me -- I haven't talked to Sandy [Alderson] about it, I haven't talked to Dan [Warthen] about it -- but I certainly have no plans at the immediate time of shutting Johan Santana down.”

Sherman: "Angels were interested in Carlos Beltran"

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets talked with the Angels about a possible trade for Carlos Beltran, “But the Angels ultimately saw [Vernon Wells] as the better choice despite the much larger financial investment.”

Sherman says the Angels felt Wells could play centerfield despite the sense his defensive game has deteriorated, and Beltran could not.

Beltran is due to earn $18.5 million in the final year of his contract this season, whereas Wells will earn $23 million in 2011 and is under contract through 2014, with $86 million still guaranteed to him.
