Mets trade RHP Gonzalez Germen

FLUSHING, N.Y., December 19, 2014 - The New York Mets today announced the team traded righthanded pitcher Gonzalez Germen to the New York Yankees for cash considerations.       

Germen, 27, did not record a decision in 25 games out of the bullpen last year while compiling a 4.75 ERA (16 earned runs/30.1 innings). The righthander is 1-2 for his career and owns a 4.31 (31 earned runs/64.2 innings) lifetime ERA in 54 games.

The Mets designated Germen for assignment on Monday, December 15. 

The deal is the 15th between the Mets and Yankees and first since December 3, 2004, when the clubs swapped Mike Stanton for Felix Heredia.
