Report: Mets Acquire J.J. Putz In Three-Team Deal

The Seattle Mariners sent right-handed reliever J.J. Putz to the New York Mets on Wednesday night as part of a three-team, nine-player trade with the Cleveland Indians. The blockbuster deal, which is the first for Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik, was confirmed on Wednesday night by a Major League official. The Mariners receive right-handed pitcher Aaron Heilman, outfielder Endy Chavez and first baseman Mike Carp from the Mets, along with outfielder Franklin Gutierrez from the Indians. Putz, who has been involved in trade rumors for several weeks, becomes the eighth-inning setup man for new Mets closer Frankie Rodriguez. Second baseman Luis Valbuena will go the Indians, who also get right-handed pitcher Joe Smith from the Mets in the deal. Mariners right-handed reliever Sean Green and center fielder Jeremy Reed also are going to the Mets in the trade. Update... The Mets also sent Minor League right-hander Maikel Cleto, outfielder Ezequiel Carrera and left-hander Jason Vargas to the Mariners.
