Mega deal: Indians trade star Lindor, Carrasco to Mets
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have traded four-time All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor (lihn-DOHR’) and pitcher Carlos Carrasco to the New York Mets.
Cleveland obtained infielders Andres Gimenez and Amed Rosario, right-hander Josh Wolf and outfielder Isaiah Greene.
Hedge fund owner Steven Cohen bought the Mets on Nov. 6 from the Wilpon and Katz families and pledges to increase spending.
The 27-year-old Lindor is one of baseball’s best all-around players, capable of winning games with his bat, glove or legs. He’s a career .285 hitter and averaged 29 homers, 86 RBIs and 21 steals in his six major league seasons — all in Cleveland.
