The New York Mets might not wait until the Aug. 1 trade deadline to make a trade, Jeff Wilpon said at a Harlem RBI event on Monday, according to Newsday's Neil Best.
"I think we might need to do something before that because the deadline is still four, six weeks away," Wilpon said, according to the New York Post's Zach Braziller.
Manager Terry Collins said on Sunday that he might consider shaking up the roster after the Mets were swept by the Atlanta Braves and lost for the sixth time in their last eight games.
"Of course we're concerned," Wilpon said. "Nobody is happy the way we've been playing."
Talking to the media last week, GM Sandy Alderson would not say how active the Mets would be as the deadline nears.
"I think it's going to depend quite a bit on what the situation is late in July, what our injury situation is with respect to all of the players we currently have on the disabled list, and those that may go on between now and then," Alderson said.
The Mets have been decimated with injuries and already made several trades this year, acquiring James Loney to replace Lucas Duda, who suffered a stress fracture in his back, and Kelly Johnson to fill the void of David Wright, who underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck.
