Mets closer Jeurys Familia has been officially traded to the Athletics, and in turn, New York's return includes two prospects and international bonus money.
The prospects included in the deal were RHP Bobby Wahl and INF William Toffey. So just how good is this return?
Starting with Wahl, this 26-year-old has been one of the best relievers in the A's farm system before he was sent away. Over 39.2 innings in Triple-A this season, he owns a 2.27 ERA/2.52 FIP with a 0.86 WHIP as well.
"The 26-year-old has been showing improved control, issuing just four walks and striking out 24 over 16.2 innings for Nashville," Athletics Nation's Bill Moriarity wrote back in May. "His 6/1 K/BB ratio is about twice as good as his career ratio, primarily due to his reduced walk rate."
Wahl has a powerful fastball, with it topping out at 99 mph and normally sitting around 93-96 mph, according to minorleagueball.com. His favorite secondary pitch is a hard breaking ball, which is considered a slider. Consistency of throwing it in the zone wasn't there at first, but in recent seasons, Wahl has improved it.

Toffey was a fourth-round pick by the A's last season, and he has been spending his time in High-A ball this season. He owns a .244/.357/.384 slash line with five homers and 32 RBI.
Batting from the left side, Toffey has been to the College World Series with Vanderbilt in the past, showing his experience with postseason baseball.
After getting drafted. minorleagueball.com called Toffey a "very polished college hitter" and said he may have "hints of Matt Carpenter" in him.
