They found a taker.
The Mets traded Keon Broxton to the Orioles on Wednesday, offloading the DFA’d outfielder for $500,000 in international bonus pool money to the worst team in the American League.
Broxton hit just .143 in 49 at-bats this season, struggling in limited playing time before the Mets had seen enough. The Mets called up Carlos Gomez from Triple-A Syracuse to replace Broxton after the Saturday DFA.
GM Brodie Van Wagenen had acquired Broxton from Milwaukee in January for reliever Bobby Wahl and a pair of prospects, trying to strengthen the Mets’ depth.
