It’s Official – Mets acquire Luis Castillo from Twins

According to FOXSports, Mets acquired second baseman Luis Castillo from the Twins for Class AA catcher Drew Butera and Class A outfielder Dustin Martin.

Castillo will replace Jose Valentin as the starting second basemen. With the Twins, Luis Castillo is batting .304 with 18 RBIs and a .356 on-base percentage.

In my opinion, a great trade for the Mets. They didn’t give up any important players and we got a good second baseman.
