Per Adam Rubin:
Omir Santos ran Ramon Castro out of town.
Santos accounted for both runs Friday night, including the game-winner in the 11th when he singled home Gary Sheffield after the 40-year-old stole second and advanced to third on an error, as the Mets beat the Marlins, 2-1, last night.
With Brian Schneider due to be activated Saturday and no room on the roster for three catchers, the Mets shipped Castro to the White Sox after the game for righthanded pitcher Lance Broadway, who will be assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.
The Mets will pay the White Sox roughly $1.4 million, according to a source, the prorated portion of the difference between what remains on Castroâ€™s $2.5 million deal and Broadwayâ€™s $402,500 salary at the major-league level.
â€œOn a night like tonight when Omir Santos plays the way he has, it makes the decision easy for us to be able to keep him,â€ GM Omar Minaya said.
