BASEBALL: Diaz for Nickeas

I know little or nothing about Mike Nickeas, the 23-year-old AA catcher the Mets got from the Rangers for Victor Diaz, but the minor league numbers suggest that besides drawing an above-average number of walks, the guy has no discernable offensive skills. I'm guessing this was strictly a deal to move Diaz after he fell out of favor within the organization.

I believe the Mets needed to take Diaz off the 40 man roster to make room for Sean Green, and that's the entire reason for the deal.
