Mets Acquire Ayala

The Nationals traded relief pitcher Luis Ayala to the Mets today for infielder Anderson Hernandez. Ayala, who is 1-8 this season with a 5.77 ERA, requested a trade weeks ago because he needed a change of scenery. This is a great move for the Mets who acquire a pitcher who should be very effective playing for a contender.

Before 2008, Ayala 's career record stood at 26-24 with a 2.46 ERA in 258 career games.
