Columbia reliever/closer Adonis Uceta was promoted to A+/St. Lucie. He's earned it. The 23-year old has gone 4-0, 1.26, 0.91 in 29 appearances for the Fireflies, while striking out 47 in 43 innings pitched.

We traded Duda to Tampa for pitcher Drew Smith so Mack what's your take on this?

Advance on Monday's Morning Report -

Like this deal for D. Smith v.2.0.

First, we get a legitimate top 30 prospect for someone leaving town anyway at the end of the year.

Secondly, he immediately becomes the top relief prospect in the chain. He comes to Mets after pitching for four minor league teams this year with mad skill stats: 31-appearances, 1-2, 1.60, 0.91. His fastball hits 95 and he’ll be major league ready by the end of the year. He enters my top prospect list at #17.

Lastly, $7mil immediately comes off the payroll and Smith is team controlled past the 2022 season.

Yeach, I like this deal.
