 NEW YORK (AP) - The Mets acquired outfielder Angel Pagan on Saturday from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for a pair of minor leaguers.
Outfielder Corey Coles and righthanded pitcher Ryan Meyers were sent to the Cubs.
The 26-year-old Pagan batted .264 with four home runs and 21 RBIs for Chicago last year.
``Angel is young, athletic and has the versatility to play all three outfield positions,'' New York general manager Omar Minaya said in a statement.
Pagan was originally drafted by the Mets in the fourth round in 1999. He was traded to the Cubs for cash Jan. 25, 2006.
Coles, 25, rose to New York's Triple-A affiliate last season, but spent the bulk of his time at Double-A Binghamton, where he hit .296 and stole nine bases.
Meyers is a 22-year-old who had 13 saves and a 2.14 ERA in 33 games at Class A Savannah. He struck out 48 and walked 14 in 42 innings.
