Mike Cameron, whose season ended Aug. 11 in San Diego, is the newest member of the Padres.
The Daily News has learned Mets traded the displaced center fielder there today for outfielder/first baseman Xavier Nady (above) pending physicals.
Cameron has been recovering from fractures to both cheekbones and his right orbital socket, which he suffered in a violent collision with Carlos Beltran.
Cameron had been the subject of trade talks since last winter, when the Mets signed Beltran, pushing the two-time Gold Glove winner to center field. He would have been shipped to the Red Sox at the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline had the Mets obtained Manny Ramirez.
