Mets Minors Trade

The New York Mets today acquired two, 23-year-old lefthanded pitchers, Jason Vargas and Adam Bostick from the Florida Marlins in exchange for a pair of righthanded pitchers, Henry Owens and Matt Lindstrom.

"We think Vargas and Bostick are two promising lefthanded pitchers and we're happy to have them in the organization," said Mets General Manager Omar Minaya.

The 6-0, 215-pound Vargas began the season in the Marlins rotation. He was 1-1 with a 5.70 ERA over five starts allowing 24 hits, 15 earned runs, 20 walks and 14 strikeouts. As a reliever, he went 0-1 with a 9.31 ERA, 10 walks and 11 strikeouts. In 2005, Vargas started 13 games for Florida going 4-5 with a 4.14 ERA, 28 walks, and 50 strikeouts. In four relief appearances, he went 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA.

Good Trade... except Henery Owens is a dominate closer....
