NEW YORK - The Padres acquired outfielder Mike Cameron from the Mets for utility player Xavier Nady on Friday.
Before the Padres agreed to complete the deal, they wanted to make sure Cameron's vision was okay following a face-to-face collision with teammate Carlos Beltran in the outfield at Petco Park on Aug. 11 that ended Cameron's season.

Nady, a second-round draft pick in the 2000 amateur draft, was billed as a super-sub last season, playing at first and third base, and all outfield positions.
