According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post the Mets thought they were going to get Carter in September but the Yankees claimed him off of waivers so they had to wait until after the season to complete the deal. Carter has since been added to the Mets 40 man roster. Carter, a 26 year old outfielder, hit .294/.358/.465 in 478 PA's with Triple-A Pawtucket this season.
Lora is a 20 year old switch hitting first baseman. Lora only played in 34 games this season (all for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox) and hit .222/.287/.414 in 108 PA's.
