Mets add Putz in three team swap

3

Mets get former stud closer J.J. Putz, middle reliever Sean Green, and 4th outfielder Jeremy Reed. They give up Aaraon Heilman, Endy Chavez, Joe Smith, Jason Vargas, prospect 1B Mike Carp, and a pitcher and outfielder. Mariners get the prospects, Chavez, Vargas, Heilman, and Indians outfielder Franklin Guitierrez, a stud defender. Indians get Mariners infielder Luis Valbuena and Joe Smith. Quick take, Mariners add a great defensive outfielder in Guitierrez, and nice 4th OF in Chavez, and some relief arms. Carp also could be a decent 1B. Indians get someone to play 2B right away and a decent situational righty. Mets get the bullpen help they need. I like it for everyone, even though there's hardly any upside in it for anyone unless Putz returns to greatness.
