This trade is confirmed. The Tigers just stuck Colyer out on waivers recently and no one bit. If the Mets wanted him then I guess they passed because they currently have a 40-man deadlock so this was more of a trade of convenience for both teams.
Colyer has already passed through to AAA Norfolk.
Ginter is a long reliever the Mets didn't have room for but he's decent and can fill in as a 6th starter when the need arises. This trade won't influence either team dramatically but it's nothing to be dissapointed over.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
