Mets Morning News: Beltran To Giants, Nickeas Called Up, Santana's Start

If you somehow managed to miss this, Carlos Beltran has been traded to the San Francisco Giants for right-handed pitching prospect, Zack Wheeler.

Mike Nickeas will replace Beltran on the Mets roster. Nickeas may not be able to join the team until Friday, however, because of Major League Baseball's 10-and-5 rule. Beltran has been in the majors for 10 years and has been with the Mets for at least 5 years. This means he must wait 24 hours until he can officially approve the deal. That 24 hour period may not be over in time for the 12:35 start this afternoon.

Don't forget, Johan Santana is scheduled to make his first rehab start tonight for St. Lucie. He will be held to 45 pitches.
