Mets Acquire Rosario, Herrera To Complete Trade

The Mets announced that they acquired Adrian Rosario and Danny Ray Herrera to complete the trade that sent Francisco Rodriguez and cash to Milwaukee in July. The Mets and Brewers initially agreed that two players to be named would join the Mets in the deal, which is now complete.

Rosario, a 21-year-old right-hander, spent the 2011 season at Class A. He started 14 games and worked out of the bullpen for a 4.32 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9.

Herrera, a 26-year-old, left-hander, has a 3.94 ERA with 6.3 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 in 93 2/3 innings of work for the Reds and Brewers in his four-year MLB career. He spent most of the 2011 season at Triple-A, where he posted a 2.20 ERA with 7.9 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9 in 61 1/3 innings.

MLB.com's Adam McCalvy first reported the deal (on Twitter).
