The Mets and Brewers will not be making any trades before Friday's 4 pm non-waiver trade deadline, Brewers GM Doug Melvin told local MLB.com reporter Andy McAlvy (July 30, 5:11 pm).
According to Melvin, if he does not trade OF Gerardo Parra by Friday, it's possible he could move him to another team through waivers in August.
As of Tuesday, the Mets, Angels and O's were among teams with interested in Parra, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman said on WFAN (July 28, 12:00 pm).
The Mets believed they were close to a deal for Parra before it fell apart last week, sources told Newsday reporter Marc Carig (July 25, 2015).
The Brewers were scouting Brandon Nimmo, Michael Fulmer and other Mets minor leaguers in early July, according to a tweet from MetsBlog's Matthew Cerrone (July 21, 2015).
Parra is due roughly $3 million the rest of this season, after which he can be a free agent. Gomez is under contract through next season, during which he'll earn $9 million.
The Astros, Cubs and Giants have also reportedly expressed interest in Parra (July 21, 2015).
