The Mets have trade RHSP Cory Mazzoni and a Player to be Named Later (PTBNL) to the San Diego Padres in exchange for LHRP Alex Torres.
The Mets also will receive some contract control in the deal. With only one year and 141 days of service time under his belt, Torres cannot become a free agent until after the 2019 season. However, he is likely to gain Super Two eligibility this year, thus, making him arbitration eligible after this season.
(Chris Soto- This is a superb trade! Cory Mazzoni was not likely to factor into the teams future plans whereas Torres is likely to become a mainstay in the Mets bullpen for at least the next 2-3 seasons. If anything Torres is also likely to amuse us a bit as he is one of the few players that's wears the MLB approved protective skull caps.)
