The Mets and Dodgers made a trade during Spring Training in 2005. Catcher-first baseman Jason Phillips was sent to Los Angeles in exchange for lefthanded pitcher Kazuhisa Ishii.

Ishii had a 36-25 won-lost record in 86 games pitched in three seasons with the Dodgers.

Ishii went 3-9 with a 5.14 earned run average in 19 games as a Met in 2005. He was released by the team the following winter. Phillips batted .238 in 121 games as a Dodger in '05. Jason signed with the Blue Jays as a free agent a year later.
