No, not Marlon.
The Mets have traded minor-league infielder Greg Veloz to the Nationals to get back infielder Anderson Hernandez. Hernandez is expected to join the Mets tomorrow in San Diego. Looks like bad news for the the Mets, and us fans and the red hot Luis Castillo who twisted his ankle falling down the dugout steps the other day.
Hernandez, 26, hit .251 with 12 extra base hits and 23 RBI in 77 games with the Nationals.
The 21–year-old Veloz had been hitting .232 with 18 stolen bases in 91 games in Single-A.
...Good news for Mets fans for one simple reason - Anderson has already been on the disabled list this season, so at least he got that out of the way…... but I'll cross my fingers...
