According to Metsblog: "The Mets have sent cash, John Buck and Marlon Byrd to the Pirates for 19-year-old Single-A SS Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later, according to reports from CBS Sports, and ESPN New York."

It appears that Dilson Herrera is ranked #11 on the Pirates prospect list (Mayo) after having a preseason ranking of 20.  Of course it also has him listed as a 2B prospect (#9).


So it does appear in deed that Cerrone uh... misspoke.  Herrera is in fact a 2B.
