    Familia has been awful, would need cash back to make that deal work.

      That’s why $10M is included, AND Wheeler. See below for additional comments.

  2. John Bitzer

    This is a buy-low play on Familia, whose contract is severely underwater. The Mets save $15M and get two lottery tickets. The A’s get a rotation upgrade and a bet on Familia to turn things around and help the bullpen like he did last year, with the added bonus that he’d be with the team two additional years at a total outlay of $15M. If he turns out to be permanently bad, it may have been a reasonable gamble, as Wheeler’s addition will have compensated for it.

  3. Trades MLB

    While this trade is definitely interesting and does make sense on the surface I don’t feel the Mets should waste a return on Wheeler in order to get rid of Familia. Trading Wheeler is the right play but I think waiting for the Offseason to try and make a deal with Familia is a better route. Gives the team and player the 2nd half to try and figure out what’s wrong and see if they can fix Jeurys. I would hate to kind of throw away Wheeler without the Mets having any other significant trade chips at the deadline
