As tipped late last night, the Mets today acquired 1B Doug Mientkiewicz from Boston in exchange for 1B prospect Ian Bladergroen.

Bladergroen (above)made the Sally League All-Star team last year, hitting .342 for the Class A Capital City Bombers with 13 homers and 74 RBI’s in 72 games. A 44th round pick in the 2002 amateur draft, Bladergroen played first for the Brooklyn Cyclones in 2003.
