The deal is official via the team’s Twitter account. Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco are members of the Mets, while four are returned to Cleveland: infielders Andrés Giménez and Amed Rosario, and prospects Isiah Greene and Josh Wolf.

According to Jeff Passan, Cleveland was in deep talks with the Mets for a Francisco Lindor deal around 12:30 p.m. ET, and by 1 p.m. the deal was official. The two sides were reportedly finalizing the steps, which typically means exchanging physicals.
