In return for Billy Wagner, the Mets are likely to get two minor league players. According to the Boston Herald, one of those players is OF/DH Chris Carter.
(Because the Mets need a DH.)
The Herald also went on to say, “According to the source, the other player dealt away to the Mets is a prospect “not of significance.”
Carter, 26, has seen 26 plate appearances with the Red Sox over the last two years. He picked up six hits, all in 2008, and four RBI, with two walks and nine strikeouts.
This season with Triple-A Pawtucket, Carter is hitting .279 AVG / .340 OBP / .439 SLG with 14 HR and 54 RBI. He has played first base, both corner outfield positions and DH’d this season, with the majority of his playing time coming in RF.
