Mets trade deadline rumors they could revisit this offseason
The New York Mets were active participants at the Trade Deadline, but there were potential trades left on the table that could be revisited in the offseason.
The New York Mets ended up having a more active trade deadline than many fans had expected them to after General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen expressed a cautious approach leading up to this year’s deadline. As we all would realize that was just typical General Manager speak, and Van Wagenen could not sit still and let the deadline pass without making a few moves.
Coming down to the wire the Mets ended up acquiring a controllable reliever with a high upside arm in Miguel Castro from the Baltimore Orioles, as well as a pair of established veterans from the Texas Rangers in infielder Todd Frazier and catcher Robinson Chirinos. In exchange, the Mets surrendered their 2019 Minor League Pitcher of the Year in Kevin Smith to the Orioles and two players to be named later to the Rangers.
While the Mets didn’t make a splashy move at the deadline, they did acquire a few under the radar pieces that could help them contend over the final month of the regular season and make a final push for a playoff spot. That doesn’t go without saying that there were a few other names in potential deals floated around leading up to the deadline, that the Mets very well may revisit this upcoming offseason.
Depending on how the final month of the regular season shakes out there are going to be a few question marks on the Major League roster after the season. I wanted to dive into a few of the names that were connected to Trade Deadline deals with the Mets, as well as the probability that the Mets make a deal this upcoming winter surrounding those players.
