The Cubs have sent outfielder Angel Pagan to the Mets in exchange for minor leaguers Ryan Meyers and Corey Coles. Meyers, 22, went 1-4 with 13 saves and a 2.79 ERA in 41 relief appearances with New York's Class A Savannah and Port St. Lucie in 2007. The six-foot-five, 204-pound Meyers struck out 55 batters and walked only 16 in 51.2 innings while limiting opponents to a .229 batting average.
Coles, 25, batted .286 with 14 doubles, one home run and 31 RBI during three stops in the Mets minor league system last year. The lefty spent most of the 2007 season with Double-A Binghamton and batted .296 with a .352 on-base percentage in 66 games. Coles earned 2006 Florida State League All-Star honors when he batted .341 in 124 games with Port St. Lucie, the 11th-highest batting average in all of minor league baseball, and a .407 on-base percentage, second best in the league. He is a career .306 hitter in 397 games in the minors.
