News: Mets re-acquire Anderson Hernandez

The Mets have traded minor-league infielder Greg Veloz to the Nationals for infielder Anderson Hernandez.

Hernandez is expected to join the Mets tomorrow in San Diego.

…i’m going to assume this means bad news for Luis Castillo, who twisted his ankle falling down the dugout steps the other day

Hernandez, 26, hit .251 with 12 extra base hits and 23 RBI in 77 games with the Nationals.

anderson has already been on the disabled list this season, so at least he got it out of the way

The 21–year-old Veloz had been hitting .232 with 18 stolen bases in 91 games in Single-A.
