Green heading to Mets pending MLB approval; Phillies pick up Hernandez
by Bob Timmermann
The New York Mets have apparently acquired Arizona outfielder/first baseman Shawn Green in a waiver deal. All that is needed is approval from the Commissioner's Office. Green had to waive a limited no-trade clause first. MLB has to make sure that the dollars involved are appropriate.
The Phillies also acquired infielder Jose Hernandez from Pittsburgh in exchange for cash.
