Mets Get Santana

The New York Mets and Minnesota Twins have reached a tentative agreement to trade Johan Santana to the New York club. A person familiar with the deal says the Twins agreed to send the two-time Cy Young Award winner to the Mets for outfielder Carlos Gomez, and pitchers Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra and Kevin Mulvey.

The next step is for the Mets to negotiate a contract extension with Santana. He is owed 13.25 million dollars this year and likely will seek an extension of at least five years worth 20 million annually.
