ICYMI: Reed traded, Rosario up, Cabrera is still here, and more

The MLB Trade Deadline is always disappointing, especially in New York, where expectations are consistently sky high... even when selling not buying. However, to be fair, it helps to judge the Mets against how other teams did and how the Mets stacked up trading similar players that got moved by other teams. In that context, I'm confident the Mets did well essentially swapping free-agents-to-be Lucas Duda and Addison Reed and prospects Merandy Gonzalez and Ricardo Cespedes for right-handed pitching prospects Drew Smith, Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista and Stephen Nogosek and big-league closer A.J. Ramos and his 92 career saves... "We're pleased with how things developed and turned out over the

The Mets didn’t trade many pieces at the deadline, but that doesn’t mean they’re done selling

Outside of Lucas Duda and Addison Reed, the Mets barely shipped any players out of town during the days and hours leading up to the trade deadline. In fact, they ended up trading for Marlins pitcher A.J. Ramos to help their bullpen over the next season-plus. Curtis Granderson, Jay Bruce, Adrubal Cabrera, and Seth Lugo were all rumored to be on the trade block at one point or another in the past few weeks, dictating a Mets fire sale similar to those fans have experienced in previous years. That didn’t come to fruition as many expected though, with Reed and Duda being the only major pieces traded despite the Mets being far out of contention for this year’s postseason. However, that doesn’t mean

Mets trade reliever Addison Reed to Red Sox for 3 prospects

The Mets traded reliever Addison Reed to the Boston Red Sox for three 22-year-old right-handed pitching prospects: Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista and Stephen Nogosek. Boston began Monday a half-game back in the AL East race and was looking to boost its bullpen for a title run. A 28-year-old right-hander, Reed is 1-2 with a 2.57 ERA and 19 saves in 21 chances.

How did the the Mets and Sandy Alderson do at today’s trade deadline?

Mets did not trade Cabrera, Bruce, or Granderson, who might all be dealt in August

The Mets did not trade infielder Asdrubal Cabrera or outfielders Jay Bruce or Curtis Granderson prior to Monday's 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline. "We really did not come close to moving any of those players," Mets GM Sandy Alderson said on a conference call. Alderson said that there's a strong possibility the team will trade one or all of Cabrera, Bruce, and Granderson in August after potentially passing through waivers. "We have probably more outfielders than we can adequately utilize," Alderson added, saying the team wants to find playing time for Brandon Nimmo and Juan Lagares, who should soon return from the disabled list. Although the Mets did not trade Cabrera to clear room in the infield,

Who did the Mets get from the Red Sox for Addison Reed?

In return for closer Addison Reed, the Mets will reportedly acquire right-handed pitching prospects Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista and Stephen Nogosek. Who is Jamie Callahan? Callahan, 23, was ranked Boston's 13th-best pitching prospect, according to MLB.com, which wrote in June that he is ready to help as a big-league middle reliever. He was drafted as a starting pitcher, but moved to the bullpen in 2015. "He keeps getting better with experience as a reliever, excelling in the Arizona Fall League after last season and earning a promotion to Triple-A this May," MLB.com wrote in June. "If he continues to deliver strikes, he should be able to help in a middle-relief role later this season."Jamie

Asdrubal Cabrera may not be traded before Monday’s deadline

12:58 PM: The Mets don't expect to reach a deal involving infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, ESPN.com's Buster Olney tweeted Monday afternoon. 9:55 AM: The Mets are not optimistic about their chance of trading Cabrera, sources told the NY Post's Joel Sherman late Monday morning. 9:22 AM: I keep being told by MLB insiders that Cabrera, Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce can easily be dealt in August through waivers. And, because their salaries will likely keep them from being blocked or claimed, it should allow the Mets to deal with whomever they need to and get a deal done. So, while there's limited interest in these guys today, and if the offers are weak, it might make sense to hold off now and see how

Red Sox trade for Mets’ Addison Reed and get the bullpen help they need

Addison Reed will be moving up I-95 from New York to Boston. The New York Mets are definitely not competing for a playoff spot this year, and continued to prove that by reportedly trading righty reliever Addison Reed to the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox are sending three minor leaguers to New York in exchange for Reed: Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek. It’s a rare all-relief trade, as all three of the Red Sox players are relief pitchers.

Red Sox bolster bullpen with acquisition of Addison Reed

BOSTON — There’s nothing wrong with being playful about the Yankees’ takeover as the favorites in the American League East. Just don’t trick yourself into thinking Sonny Gray is the reason, and that the flip switched Monday. Right after the Chris Sale trade in the winter, Yanks general manager Brian Cashman compared the Sox to the Golden State Warriors. So after the Yankees completed a trade Monday with the A’s for Gray on Monday, Dombrowski — pleasantly — put some pressure right back on the Yanks. “You mean the Golden State Warriors, you’re talking about?” Dombrowski said in a Fenway Park press conference. “I think the Golden State Warriors have significantly made some moves. I expected it.
