#660) EDWIN ALMONTE
Edwin Almonte was traded with Royce Ring and Andrew Salvo by the Chicago White Sox to the New York Mets for Roberto Alomar on July 1, 2003. Edwin appeared in 12 games for the Mets pitching 11-1/3 innings for them. He was very ineffective allowing 14 earned runs including three homeruns for a 11.12 ERA. The Mets released Almonte and he was claimed on waivers by the Boston Red Sox on November 20, 2003.
Edwin Almonte signed his card in the set for my friend Eric when he saw him before a Schamburg Flyers game on August 14, 2009.
