New York Mets new 2b Luis Castillo

by Steve

"Minnesota gets catcher Drew Butera, who will report to Double-A New Britain, and outfielder Dustin Martin, who will go to Class-A Fort Myers. The deal, which came together in less than 24 hours, was completed one day before the deadline for making trades without waivers.

Castillo, who is making $5.75 million this season, can become a free agent after the World Series. He has only nine stolen bases in 13 attempts and just 29 walks in 349 at-bats with 11 doubles, three triples and 18 RBIs, but he has been one of only a handful of consistent hitters for the Twins this year.

and the Twins certainly weren't happy to see one of their best players go."

i'll take it those prospects seem to have medium to low ceilings and castillo can hit for average. He is another potential lead off hitter and should be a better #2 batter than Gotay at this point.

In other Mets news Pedro (Pete) Martinez has kept his promise and will actually make his return in August, Aug 1 in fact throwing around 50 pitches in a minor league game. This is only good news and hopefully things go well enough that Pete will be back dealing @ Shea by the second week of August.
