Longtime Mets backup C Vance Wilson was traded today to the Tigers in exchange for minor league SS Anderson Hernandez.

Hernandez committed just 18 errors last year in 125 combined games at Class A Lakeland and AA Erie, but isn’t considered much of a threat at the plate.

St. Louis have signed 2B Mark Grudzielanek to a one year deal. The 10 year vet hit .307 with 6 HR’s and 23 RBI’s over 81 games last year for the Cubs while missing most of the season’s first half due to an ankle injury. Said news contradicts earlier reports that the Cardinals were on the brink of signing Robbie Alomar.
