Pedro Beato To Red Sox As PTBNL In Shoppach Trade

PEDRO BEATO: Mets send reliever packing in Shoppach deal.

Keith Law of ESPN, is reporting that the Mets have sent RHP Pedro Beato to the Boston Red Sox as the player to be named later in the trade they made to acquire catcher Kelly Shoppach.

The Mets acquired Beato via the Rule 5 draft in 2010.

Beato spent the entire 2011 season on the Major League roster, but lost significant time to the disabled list with a shoulder injury.

The young right-hander spent most of this season with Triple-A Buffalo, but did make seven appearances with the Mets posting a 10.38 ERA in just 4 1/3 innings.
