Mets Get Chris Carter To Complete Billy Wagner Trade
According to Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, the Mets and Red Sox completed the Billy Wagner trade by acquiring AAA OF Chris Carter and Single-A 1B Eddie Lora. Carter was immediately added to the Mets’ 40-man roster, which brings the current number to 38.
Carter, 26, is a career minor leaguer who has consistently hit well over .300 at Class AAA. This season, he hit .294 with 16 homers for Pawtucket.
Originally a first baseman, the lefthanded power prospect has accumulated significant playing time in the outfield.
The Red Sox had to wait for the season to end before they could send Carter to the Mets because of a waiver claim made by the Yankees in August.
