Talk about a connection to the glory days of the Mets past: Juan was once traded (in September of 2003) from the Minnesota Twins to the New York Yankees organization in exchange for none other than Jesse Orosco! Called up to the Mets just after the 2005 All-Star break after an impressive start at Norfolk, he got a save in his second Met appearance. Juan's card from 2004 Upper Deck SP Prospects is shown here.
