Mets Acquire Wilson Valdez

According to Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog, the Mets sent cash to the Indians for journeyman minor league shortstop Wilson Valdez.  Based on the 31 year-old's hitting for the Columbus Clippers this year, I'd say he's the all-glove stopgap the Mets have been seeking.

Other moves: Ryan Church and Jose Reyes to the DL, top prospect Fernando Martinez promoted.  Martinez, just 20, owns a .291/.337/.552 line in 42 Triple A games this year. He could accumulate as much as 132 days service time this year, meaning there's a slight chance he'll become a Super Two Player after 2011.
