With the New York Mets looking to upgrade their pitching this offseason, there are three under the radar trades they should consider looking into to bolster the starting rotation and the bullpen.
The New York Mets have three available rotation spots up for grabs this offseason and they certainly could use another arm to upgrade the bullpen. I mean which Major League team every offseason isn’t looking to upgrade their bullpen?
The Mets will have plenty of options in free agency this winter to explore in terms of upgrading their starting rotation and adding potential arms to their bullpen. All eyes will be on where starting pitcher Trevor Bauer ultimately lands and following his decision, the rest of the dominoes in the pitching market should follow shortly thereafter.
All Mets fans had to learn the hard way this past season that you can never have too much pitching. The organization certainly has the resources to alleviate those concerns this offseason and it will take more than just Trevor Bauer to fix the starting rotation.
The Mets certainly should be interested in adding Bauer behind Jacob deGrom in the rotation as well as the many other quality arms that are on the open market. Nonetheless, there are some under the radar trades that the Mets can make this offseason to bolster both their rotation depth as well as their bullpen depth.
Moving forward I wanted to explore three potential under the radar trades that the Mets should consider making this offseason. These moves would not only upgrade the roster but provide the depth that the Mets sorely lacked this past season. The Mets backbone in previous successful seasons has always revolved around their dominant pitching and with Sandy Alderson returning as Team President I would expect those values to resurface in 2021.
