The Mets have acquired outfielder Jorge Padilla from the Blue Jays, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com (via Twitter). There’s no word on what Toronto will receive on the deal at this time.
Padilla, 30, has a slash line of .330/.405/.459 with four homers for Toronto’s Triple A affiliate this season.
He came to the plate 26 times with the Nationals last year, picking up just three singles and a walk. The Mets have assigned him to their Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo, so he’ll presumably serve as extra depth.
