With the New York Mets still campaigning for a run this postseason, here are four more players they should add to their trade deadline wish list.

Two and a half months into the 2019 season, the New York Mets had a tumultuous start to the year, dealing with a plethora to injuries to key players, including many of the off-season acquisitions, as well as inconsistent play from many of the healthy ones.

In a season which they began with high expectations, the team has underperformed to this point in the year, most notably getting swept by the last-place Miami Marlins, leading many to question how much longer Mickey Callaway should be allowed to remain the club’s manager.

Despite the turmoil, the Mets are not out of the running yet, as they entered their 4-game series against the Cardinals one game under .500, and are still in the hunt for the postseason.

There is still plenty of time for the team to turn things around and get back on track this season, but they should definitely look for some upgrades at a few of their positions.

Especially after it was announced that All-Star Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had to undergo another ankles surgery and is ruled out for the year, they have one less key player to expect to get back this season, and should look to acquire new talent down the line to help bolster the lineup, as well as the pitching staff.

As a follow-up to my previous post about Mets trade targets, here are four more men to add to their summer wish list.
