Free, Timo Perez

The Mets on Saturday announced that they’d traded reserve outfielder Timo Perez to the Chicago White Sox for minor league reliever Matt Ginter. Perez, who over three years provided stretches of exciting play interrupted by minor injuries and major brainfarts, was a victim of a numbers game in the outfield. On Sunday, the Mets replaced his reserve spot with former Cub, Astro and Indian infielder Ricky Gutierrez, acquired for a scrub to be named. Update:Sure enough the Mets have issued No. 6 for the 28th time in history. That’s the most ever for any number.
