Mets trade former ace Matt Harvey to Reds for C Devin Mesoraco

The New York Mets have traded former ace Matt Harvey to the Cincinnati Reds for catcher Devin Mesoraco in a swap of former All-Stars with careers sidetracked by injuries.

The deal was announced less than an hour before the first pitch of Tuesday night’s game between the Mets and Reds at Great American Ball Park.

New York designated the 29-year-old Harvey for assignment last Saturday, giving it seven days to trade or release him. The Reds decided to take a chance on Harvey, who lost his spot in the Mets’ rotation after four starts and was hit hard in four relief appearances.

Mesoraco’s career has been sidelined by injuries the last three seasons. He’s batting .220 in 18 games with one homer and three RBIs.

David Ortiz shooting: Nine suspects indicted, 10th suspect turns self in

The nine suspects allegedly involved in last Sunday night's shooting of Red Sox legend David Ortiz have been indicted.

According to The Boston Globe, the suspects are being sent to four different prisons “in order to protect the integrity of the investigation" and could be held for up to a year. They are charged with attempted murder, criminal association and illegal possession of weapons.

Jhoel Lopez, a Dominican variety show producer, also was injured in the shooting. Lopez's lawyer, Jose Martinez, said a 10th suspect turned himself in on Friday, per The Globe.

Ortiz continues to recover from his injuries in the intensive care unit at Mass General Hospital in Boston. His wife, Tiffany, has shared encouraging updates on the beloved former slugger along with his daughter, Alex.
