UPDATE: Braves will be receiving young arms for Uribe and KJ, per Joel Sherman. It’d be nice to get some bats for a change, but I’ll reserve judgement until the deal is made official.
Mets Nearing Deal For Juan Uribe, Kelly Johnson
The Mets may be closing in on a deal with the Braves for two utility pieces, according to a report from Jim Bowden of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Both Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson appear to be ticketed for Queens if the deal goes through.
New York will send “young arms” to Atlanta to add the two veterans, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post (via Twitter).
John Hart must read the Office. Three days ago I wrote:
Here’s my pitch: Uribe, Pierzynski and KJ, if necessary, for C Kevin Plawecki
No word on what the Braves will receive in return, but if it’s Plawecki credit the Braves GM with yet another steal.
