Red Sox Land Billy Wagner
Billy Wagner escaped the infirmary that has become the New York Mets’ clubhouse without further injury. ESPN is reporting that Wagner waived his no-trade clause allowing the Mets to deal the reliever to the Boston Red Sox for two players to be named later.
As part of the negotiation, the Red Sox will not pick up Billy Wagner’s 2010 option, but they will be able to offer arbitration, which would allow the Red Sox to get draft pick compensation if he joined another club next year.
There is little fantasy relevance to this deal.
