The New York Mets traded closer Jeurys Familia to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for prospects and cash Saturday http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , the Athletics announced.Jane Lee of MLB.com first reported the news. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported the A's gave up right-handed pitcher Bobby Wahl, third baseman Will Toffey and international slot money. Anthony DiComo of MLB.com noted the Mets didn't take on any of Familia's salary despite having previously said they'd be willing to do so to get better prospects in trades.Familia is in the midst of his seventh season in Major League Baseball, all of which have been spent with the Mets. The 28-year-old righty has a 4-4 record and 2.88 ERA after he struggled last season.Following three fantastic years in a row, Familia dropped off significantly in 2017 with a 4.38 ERA and just six saves in 26 appearances. That came on the heels of Familia's 15-game suspension for violating the MLB domestic violence policy.Familia posted a 1.85 ERA and saved 43 games in 2015 and was named an All-Star for the first time in 2016. The Dominican Republic native's ERA rose to 2.55 in 2016, but he led MLB with a career-high 51 saves.Though Familia has been among the best closers in baseball over the past few seasons Russell Martin Jersey , he became expendable for the struggling Mets. With New York essentially out of the playoff race at 40-55, there was little need for it to hang on to a closer who is set to hit free agency this offseason.The trade left a significant hole at the back end of the Mets bullpen, but it won't have much of an impact on where they finish in the standings. Perhaps the biggest question resulting from the swap is who will close games for the Mets next season.Familia will likely serve as a setup man in Oakland for All-Star closer Blake Treinen. He will join an unheralded bullpen that has also gotten strong performances from Yusmeiro Petit, Lou Trivino and Emilio Pagan.Adding another pitcher with closing experience should help the A's as they look to secure a wild-card berth in the American League. SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Padres vice president of scouting Don Welke has died. He was 75.The team says he died Wednesday night in San Diego surrounded by family. No cause was given.Welke worked in baseball for more than 50 years. He joined the Padres in 2014, following general manager A.J. Preller from the Texas Rangers to San Diego. Welke also worked the Phillies Josh Donaldson Jersey , Dodgers, Orioles, Blue Jays, Royals and Reds.Welke was instrumental in the Rangers reaching consecutive World Series. He was directly involved in the signings and acquisitions of Adrian Beltre, Jurickson Profar and Elvis Andrus. He also helped sign Dave Stieb http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , Pat Hentgen and John Olerud.In a statement, Preller calls Welke a “visionary who knew and loved baseball, and he shared that knowledge and passion with me and countless other scouts throughout his five decades in the game.”
