Date: August 18, 1995
Team: Los Angeles Dodgers
Sent: Brett Butler
Received: Dwight Maness, Scott Hunter

The Mets and Dodgers made a trade that involved three outfielders in August of 1995. Brett Butler was sent to Los Angeles for Dwight Maness and Scott Hunter. Butler, who had played the previous four years with the Dodgers, had 7 triples and 21 stolen bases for the Mets in '95. Despite Brett's departure before season's end, these totals led the Mets for the season. Maness and Hunter were Single-A level players.

Neither Maness nor Hunter ever reached the major leagues. Dwight played four seasons in the Mets system while Scott spent seven years as a Mets minor leaguer. Both players got as high as AAA, but did not appear in any games for the Mets.

In his return to Los Angeles, Butler batted .274 in 39 games in '95. He had 4 hits in 15 at bats in the Dodgers' three-game loss to the Reds in the National League Division Series. Brett played two more seasons with the Dodgers to conclude his major league career.
