Luis Castillo to the Mets


Week old post bumping extraordinaire
I'll upload the Star Tribune link in a moment. Just for two minor leaguers though, a AA Catchers and a A outfielder. Good move for the Twins, because Liquid Lou would've been a FA in the offseason.

It’s official: Castillo to the Mets
Monday, July 30th, 2007 The Twins traded second baseman Luis Castillo to the New York Mets on Monday for Class AA catcher Drew Butera, the son of former major league catcher Sal Butera, and Class A outfielder Dustin Martin.

The Twins announced the move at 5:45 p.m. Twins General Manager Terry Ryan was scheduled to meet with the media at 6 p.m.

Castillo, 31, is making $5.75 million this year and is eligible for free agency at season’s end. As the Twins leadoff hitter, he was batting .304 with a .356 on-base percentage.
