Mets trade R.Ring & H.Bell to Padres

Postby killiansjmd » Wed Nov 15, 2006 1:56 pm

The Mets have traded LHP Royce Ring and RHP Heath Bell to the Padres for RHP Jon Adkins and OF Ben Johnson, reports Ken Rosenthal at

According to Baseball America…

“Johnson has all the tools to be an everyday outfielder in the big leagues. He has shortened his swing and developed above-average power while improving his grasp of the strike zone. Once a plus-plus runner, he’s now just a tick above-average. He’s a good right fielder with a solid arm.”

im not a big heath bell fan. i guess i like the trade since we do need depth at the corner OF positions and at age 25 ben johnson could develop into either a below average starter or solid 4th outfielder at some point.
