The San Francisco Giants' press release announcing the trade sending Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez east in exchange Angel Pagan disclosed that the Mets are on the hook for either another player to be named later, or cash. This is news to Mets fans who were mostly in agreement that this was an attractive trade by Sandy Alderson.
While its a bit annoying that its taken several days to learn of these details, there is no information with regards to who that player might be, or how much money the team could be liable for. Just a guess, but I would assume that this wouldn't include and impact prospect or only a few hundred thousand dollars.
