Mets accquire OF Pagan for second go-around

Via TheRopolitans.com:
The Mets have traded for Angel Pagan for RHP Ryan Meyers and OF Corey Coles. Pagan is coming back to the Mets from the Cubs, where he was traded back in 2006 for cash considerations.

Pagan, age 26, batted .264 with 4 home runs and 21 RBI in 71 games last year.

Meyers spent time at Savannah and St. Lucie last year, going 1-4 with a 2.79 ERA. He logged 13 saves.
Coles batted .286 at three different minor league levels, tagging one home run and driving in 31 RBI.

Welcome back.
I can see him working out as an Endy Chavez type player, coming in for late inning defense in place of old man Moises Alou. That is, if he makes the team.
As we saw last year, a team can never have enough outfielders.
