It was suggested last week by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports that the Mets could have interest in Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez and SS Jean Segura, and Marc Carig of Newsday reported that the Mets are indeed interested in acquiring Ramirez (June 10, 6:51 p.m.). However, Adam Rubin reported on Tuesday that the Mets are not interested in Ramirez and reiterated as much on Wednesday (June 10, 7:02 .m.)
According to Rubin, "The Mets do not want to be boxed in once David Wright ultimately returns from his lower-back injury" and "They are not keen on Ramirez's diminishing skills anyway."
As it pertains to the Mets potentially dealing a starting pitcher to the Brewers, Ken Rosenthal reported that Milwaukee has no interest in Jon Niese and said there's only a "remote" chance of them dealing for Dillon Gee (June 10, 7:33 p.m.)
The Mets, who are without Daniel Murphy in addition to Wright, can use infield help.
Other Brewers who could reportedly be available include outfielders Gerardo Parra, Carlos Gomez, and Ryan Braun.
While the Brewers are open to trading Braun, they have no interest in picking up any portion of the roughly $100 million remaining on his current contract, according to team reporter Todd Rosiak (May 21).
Gomez is a free agent after 2016, and Parra is a free agent after this season.
