|Sent: Lou Collier|
|Received: Jason Bay, Jimmy Serrano|
The Mets and Expos made a trade during Spring Training in 2002. Outfielder Lou Collier was sent to the Montreal team for outfielder Jason Bay and pitcher Jimmy Serrano. Collier was a five-year major leaguer whom the Mets had acquired two months earlier. Bay and Serrano had yet to play at the major league level.
Bay hit .277 in 103 games for the Mets' affiliates at St. Lucie (A) and Binghamton (AA) in 2002. He was dealt to the Padres during the season. Serrano had a 9-8 won-lost record in two seasons with the Mets' AAA-level team in Norfolk. He joined the Kansas City Royals in 2004.
Collier appeared in 13 games for the Expos in '02. He had one hit in 11 times at bat. Lou was released by the Montreal team at the end of the season.
