Has Pat Burrell been traded to the Mets? UPDATE: Nope

Leave a comment

I put that in the form of a question because while one paper is reporting that it has happened — a three way swap that had him first going to the Cubs and then to the Mets — no one else is reporting it yet.  And no one here at the Meetings is talking about it.

If it’s true, WTF are the Mets thinking?

UPDATE: A few people are now saying this is bogus, but PhillyBurbs.com still has it up.  Gotta love the looney season.

UPDATE II:  Now the Mets are saying it’s totally bogus.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
