Pretty nice addition if its true.
It shouldn't be too hard to open up roster spots. I have no idea why they protected Hansel Robles though, unless they plan to fast-track him as a reliever.
Havens is the guy that likely gets dumped.
Who the hell is Hansel Robles?
I think i'd rather give RH one last shot.
And "ultimately," Alderson said, "we're judged on whether we win or lose."
...but good pick up by the Mets.
14. Hansel Robles – RHP (NR)
Another Mets prospect I got plenty of exposure to this year, Robles has a heavy sinking fastball that can sit in the low-90s, touching 95 at times. He throws strikes but doesn’t always locate within the strike zone. His slider and change-up enter in the same velocity range, necessitating full development of the movement on both to make them truly effective. He has the potential for a three-pitch mix that induces ground balls and works in the back of a rotation.
I would dump Hefner first in all honesty, they have pretty good pitching depth, I would hate to lose a Havens or Lagares or even Lutz if they need to make room.
You can say that twice.
