Mets Blockbuster Trade Includes 2018 Rumble Pony, Justin Dunn
Queens, N.Y. - The New York Mets officially completed their Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz blockbuster trade, on Monday. Cano is coming back to New York where he won a World Series in 2009 with the New York Yankees and he's bringing All-Star closer Edwin Diaz with him. The second basemen and pitcher are coming over from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak, plus former first-round draft picks Jarred Kelenic and Justin Dunn (former Rumble Pony), as well as reliever Gerson Bautista (former Rumble Pony).
Binghamton will say goodbye to former Rumble Pony, right-handed pitcher Justin Dunn, who was drafted to the Mets back in 2016. In 2018, he started 24 minor league games, 15 with the Rumble Ponies, collecting a 4.22 ERA and tossed 105 strike outs.
The twenty-three year old took to twitter to thank the Mets organization, saying in part, "I just wanted to say thank you to the Wilpon family and the entire Mets organization for taking a chance on me. I have and will always call New York my home and will cherish the memories I've created in the organization."
