The Mets are on the verge of acquiring 1B/OF Jeff Conine for two Class-A position players. The deal has been worked on for the past couple of days and it is believed that the players going to Cincinnati are Jose Castro and Sean Henry. Conine will fill in for Damian Easely on the roster and Jorge Cantu will fill in for Conine. Conine is batting .265 with 6 HR and 32 RBI in 80 games this season for the Reds.
