The Mets appear to be looking into the trade market for an outfielder, too.
The Mets and Tigers have had talks regarding rightfielder Nick Castellanos, per Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free-Press, although the asking price is high.
Castellanos, 26, hit .298/.354/.500 with 23 home runs and 89 RBI last season with the Tigers and can also play third base. He is projected to earn $11.3 million in 2019 -- his final season of arbitration eligibility -- before becoming a free agent in 2020.
While new GM Brodie Van Wagenen has shown he is willing to be aggressive in the trade market, SNY's Andy Martino reports that the Mets are still serious about free agent outfielder A.J. Pollock.
