Mets Trade Schoeneweis To Arizona
Mets.com is reporting that the Mets have traded Scott Schoeneweis to the Arizona Diamondbacks for righthand pitcher Connor Robertson.
Here is the press release:
The New York Mets tonight acquired righthanded relief pitcher Connor Robertson from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for lefthanded pitcher Scott Schoeneweis and cash considerations.
Robertson, 27, was 0-1 with a 5.14 ERA in nine games with Arizona this past season. In 7.0 innings, he allowed eight hits, four runs, earned, with two walks and two strikeouts. In addition, the 6-2, 220-pounder went 7-4 with a 5.02 ERA in 47 contests with Tucson (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League. In 71.2 innings, he surrendered 69 hits, 45 runs, 40 earned, with 30 walks and 72 strikeouts.
“We’re happy to acquire Connor Robertson,” said Mets General Manager Omar Minaya. “He has a solid minor league track record and he’s a good addition to our system.”
Robertson is 29-13 with 24 saves a 2.82 ERA in 217 career minor league games. In 305.0 innings, he’s allowed 268 hits, 136 runs, 113 earned, with 123 walks and 382 strikeouts.
Well the Schow must go on…
Schoeneweis, 35, pitched in 73 games last season for the Mets, going 2-6 with a 3.34 ERA with one save and 15 holds. He was tied for seventh in the National League among left-handers in holds last season, while left-handed batters hit .178 (18-for-101) against him, the seventh-lowest average among all Major League relief pitchers (minimum 100 at-bats) and second-lowest among left-handers.
Bet you didn’t know that…
