Mets introduce Cano, Diaz at Citi Field

Postado Dezembro 07, 2018

If he were to get the call up, he wouldn't be the only big name new to the Mets roster.

Chimed in Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon: "I think there's a lot more that's going to happen".

A mere five days ago it was reported that the Mets were "motivated" to trade starter Noah Syndergaard.

"I'm more than happy", Cano said.

In his first big move as Mets GM, Brodie Van Wagenen brought the 36-year-old Cano back to NY.

Cano hit.303 with 10 home runs and 50 RBIs in 80 games.

The Mets sent top prospect Jarred Kelenic, prospect Justin Dunn, veteran outfielder Jay Bruce, right-hander Gerson Bautista, and reliever Anthony Swarzak to the Mariners in exchange for the duo. He waived his no-trade clause to return to NY and is expected to stay at second base. But when the Mets heard he might be included in a trade to NL East rival Philadelphia, they accelerated their efforts.

Diaz, just 24 years old, joins his new team as one of the most coveted trade targets of the offseason.

Diaz led the majors with 57 saves last season.

"I think for me, nothing", he said.

Van Wagenen said this trade was not the "end-all move" and the winter meetings starting this weekend in Las Vegas could prove him right.

Could they have gotten more?
