The Mets have traded right handed pitcher Logan Verrett to the Baltimore Orioles for cash.
Orioles traded cash considerations (50K) to mets for rhp logan verrett— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) November 30, 2016
Verrett had 16 starts in New York, racking up an ERA of 4.56 and a 5.05 FIP. While Verrett wasn’t the Mets most valuable pitcher, he did offer a rotation plagued by injuries some stability...even if that stability was painfully average. The trade of him to Baltimore now frees up a much needed spot on New York’s 40-man roster and puts a little extra cash into their pockets.
Here’s what else is going on around the National League East.
In case you’ve been in deep hibernation and haven’t heard, Yoenis Cespedes is staying in New York (and getting a pretty big pay day).
The Marlins are open to trading RHP A.J. Ramos.
The Marlins also have signaled that they might be willing to trade current closer A.J. Ramos, especially if revenue-sharing rules change https://t.co/M5qfk7zsj5— Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) November 29, 2016
Andrew McCutchen could find a home in Washington, if the Nationals have anything to do with it.
The Phillies have hired former Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan. So, basically, if you weren’t already gripping your rosary beads as a Phillies fan, you better get to that right now.
The Braves have acquired former Mariners top prospect, Alex Jackson. Jackson was drafted sixth overall in 2014 and has spent the last two years playing the outfield for Seattle’s farm team. In exchange, the Braves are dealing Rob Whalen and Max Povse to Seattle.
