Red Sox send two to seal Wagner deal

NEW YORK -- The Mets have acquired minor leaguers Chris Carter and Eddie Lora from Boston, completing an earlier trade that sent reliever Billy Wagner to the Red Sox.

New York traded Wagner to Boston on Aug. 25 for two players to be named.

Carter batted .294 with 16 home runs and 61 RBIs in 116 games with Triple-A Pawtucket this season. The 26-year-old outfielder was added to the Mets' 40-man roster Wednesday.

Carter was hitless in five at-bats for the Red Sox in April. He is a .306 career hitter with 126 homers in 726 minor league games.

Lora, a 20-year-old first baseman, batted .222 with three homers and seven RBIs in 34 games with the rookie-level Gulf Coast Red Sox this season.
