The Mets did their part as auctioneer last week, beginning with the trade of Aussie lefty Graeme Lloyd 17 to Kansas City for a minor leaguer. Jamie Cerda 43 was recalled to take Lloyd’s place. A day later the Mets dumped Rey Sanchez 10 on Seattle and took back minor league outfielder Kenny Kelly, whom they assigned to Norfolk. Jason Roach 57 was recalled.
On Saturday the Mets demoted Edwin Almonte 56 and recalled Jeremy Griffiths 46.
