We all knew it was coming. According to multiple reports, the Mets have agreed in principle to a deal to send Beltran and cash to the San Francisco Giants for prospects.
There have conflicting reports as to who the Mets will be receiving in return, but it looks like it will be between top-tier pitcher Zach Wheeler or OF Gary Brown. Wheeler is the Giants top pitching prospect and is 7-5 with a 3.99 ERA in 16 starts for Class A San Jose. Brown is batting .317 with 8 HR’s, 58 RBI’s and 39 SB’s in Class A San Jose.
