Report: Mets have discussed a Matt Harvey trade with at least two teams

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 04:11:39 GMT

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets have discussed a trade involving starter Matt Harvey with at least two teams. Apparently, the Mets were even willing to move Harvey for a reliever. The Mets tendered Harvey a contract on December 1.



The Mets plan to inquire about Starlin Castro

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 20:15:13 GMT

Yankees’ second baseman Starlin Castro is presumed to be heading to the Marlins in a trade for Giancarlo Stanton this weekend, and once that deal is official, his stay in Miami may be a fairly brief one. Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets intend to inquire about Castro’s availability as part of their ongoing search for help at second base. The Mets have left no stone unturned this offseason.



Winter meetings warm up fast: Gregerson, relievers in demand

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 02:09:57 GMT

Now that Shohei Ohtani and Giancarlo Stanton picked their new places to play, baseball bosses checked into the winter meetings primed to make moves that had been bottled up for weeks. The market for relievers quickly warmed Sunday, even before many teams got down to business. Luke Gregerson found a spot in the St. Louis bullpen, and Brandon Morrow could be closing for the Cubs.



Mets reportedly 'willing to move' Harvey in search of reliever

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 00:56:16 GMT

As the Mets try to fill gaping infield holes from a free agent class that is mediocre at best, the team is looking to the trade market to try to piece together an outside-the-box solution for a challenging offseason. Evan Longoria may be on the trading block, and if he is, the Mets will likely check in about what the Rays are looking for. Longoria is not the player he was when he peaked in his mid-20s, when he was one of the best third basemen in the game, but he has shown the ability to stay healthy despite his age. Since 2013, he has played at least 156 games every season and has the most games played of anyone in baseball in that span. For a team constantly struggling to keep players on the



Alderson: Because of contract, didn't make sense for Mets to 'feign' interest in Stanton

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 21:05:16 GMT

Because of the size of Giancarlo Stanton's contract, it didn't make sense for the Mets to "feign" any interest in him, GM Sandy Alderson said Sunday at the Winter Meetings in Orlando, FL. Alderson also made a joke, saying "with Brandon Nimmo in right field, we just didn't feel that we had a need there." The Marlins have agreed to trade Stanton to the Yankees, with a press conference expected Monday, according to multiple reports. The Yankees will take on $265 million of the $295 million owed to Stanton, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Starlin Castro and minor leaguers Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers are being sent to the Marlins, reports Joel Sherman of the NY Post. The Yankees are aiming



Alderson intimates Mets won't acquire a starting pitcher

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 21:54:00 GMT

Mets GM Sandy Alderson said starting pitching is not one of New York's major priorities heading into the MLB Winter Meetings despite the fact their rotation had the 27th-ranked ERA as a team last year. "I'd say that, as it stands right now, [starting pitching] would probably be fourth on a list of three," Alderson told reporters on Sunday, indicating the team is instead focusing on bolstering the bullpen, adding a bat to the lineup and solidifying its situation at first base and in the outfield. Mets starters went 49-64 last season with a 5.14 ERA, which was the second-worst among all National League teams. Only Jacob deGrom and Robert Gsellman made more than 20 starts for New York last season.



Alderson says Mets don't anticipate adding first baseman who would block Smith

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 21:23:33 GMT

Despite saying he felt first baseman Dominic Smith did not play well enough in his brief MLB stint last season to already earn the starting job in 2018, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he and the franchise remain optimistic in Smith's potential moving forward. Speaking at the MLB Winter Meetings on Sunday, Alderson said the team, which has reportedly considered making a run at several free-agent first basemen, including Eric Hosmer and Carlos Santana, likely wouldn't make a move that would take Smith out of the equation for next season "I wouldn't expect us to do something that totally eliminates Dominic as a possibility," Alderson said. "We're still very high on Dominic, some of my comments earlier



MLB Rumors: Mets Willing to Trade Matt Harvey

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 11:05:41 GMT

It has been a slow free agency period so far, but things are expected to pick up once the winter meetings take place this week in Orlando, Fla. The biggest blockbuster in years has been completed as the New York Yankees finalized of a trade sending National League Most Valuable Player Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins to the Bronx. The Marlins will get back second baseman Starlin Castro, minor league right-handed pitcher Jorge Guzman and minor league infielder Jose Devers in the deal.



Alderson says Mets won't jump into 'inferno' of relief market

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 21:50:42 GMT

Mets GM Sandy Alderson suggested on Sunday at the Winter Meetings that the Mets are looking for "value" in the relief pitching free agent market, and said the team isn't prepared to jump into the "inferno" of that market. This is a departure from earlier this offseason, when Alderson said the team was placing a high priority on bullpen help. "It's about value as well as need, depending on where you're prepared to take another risk," Alderson explained. "It is a fluid situation. ... and we have to constantly reevaluate our options against what the marketplace is." The Mets have been connected to relievers Brandon Morrow and Luke Gregerson, who signed elsewhere earlier Sunday. They reportedly made
