Francisco Lindor traded to New York Mets

Cleveland Indians winning streak

All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor has been traded from the Cleveland Indians to the New York Mets. The trade broke on Thursday afternoon after word was circulating that the two teams were nearing a deal for the 27-year-old infielder.

Mets beat writer for MLB.com Anthony DiComo reported the trade had been finalized on Thursday via Twitter.

Lindor has been a four-time All-Star in just six seasons with the Indians. The shortstop has also won two Silver Sluggers and two Gold Gloves. He played in the 2016 World Series against the Chicago Cubs, coming as close as one can to a championship, as the team lost in extra innings of Game 7.

In the trade, the Mets also acquire 11-year veteran pitcher Carlos Carrasco. His steady production and presence can add to an already interesting New York starting lineup. According to the report, the Mets will send pitcher Josh Wolf, shortstop Andres Gimenez and some other pieces to Cleveland.

No statement from Lindor has been released at time of writing.
