Team: Arizona Diamondbacks
Sent: Bill Pulsipher
Received: Lenny Harris

The Mets made a deal with the Diamondbacks in the middle of the 2000 season. Pitcher Bill Pulsipher was dealt to Arizona for Lenny Harris. A one-time top prospect for the Mets, Pulsipher had been plagued by injuries and appeared in only two games for the team during the year. Harris, who played for the Mets two years earlier, was a veteran who served as a quality infielder and outfielder.

In his second tour of duty with the Mets, Harris appeared in 186 games for the team in 2000 and 2001. He had 76 hits for 100 total bases over the two years. Lenny had three triples and eight stolen bases to lead the Mets in their pennant-winning 2000 season.

Pulsipher never pitched for the Arizona team. He appeared in 13 games for the Diamondbacks' AAA-affiliate in Tucson to finish the 2000 season. Bill then signed with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays as a free agent.
