Look for the Mets to trade Rule 5 pick Kyle Lobstein to the Tigers. Tigers ran a note to the Mets' table right before the pick

He just got traded to the Tigers

Susana said...

For cash. Stupid move in my opinion. Why not give a big lefty a chance out of the bullpen in the spring? Ugh.

Mack Ade said...

this is a favor to Detroit that may pay out before the beginning of the season.

The Tigers now owe the Mets "one"

Soto said...

Agreed and Susana, the Mets already have Edgin and perhaps Carson available as young lefties. This pick was never for the mets.
