The Mets are open to discussing trades for their pending free agents, but the market could prove to be difficult, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney.
Jay Bruce, Addison Reed, Curtis Granderson, Asdrubal Cabrera, Lucas Duda, Jerry Blevins and Neil Walker are all eligible to be a free agents at the end of this season. However, according to Olney, since most of this year's contending teams do not have a major need for position players, it may be difficult for Sandy Alderson to find worthwhile trading partners this summer.
For instance, the Dodgers, Rockies, Diamondbacks, Astros, and Cubs are likely to prioritize pitching in advance of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. And while a few teams have weaknesses in the field, their holes are very particular, such as the Red Sox needing a third baseman.
