As the New York Mets look to upgrade the major league roster this offseason, there are three under the radar trades for positions of need that the organization should consider.
There is nothing more exciting than playing the role of General Manager of the New York Mets from the comfort of your couch and analyzing the many different signings as well as trades that the team should consider this offseason. While many of us fans are enamored with the higher-end free agents and blockbuster trade options such as J.T. Realmuto, Francisco Lindor, and Trevor Bauer, just to name a few, there are also some under the radar trades that the Mets should potentially explore this offseason.
The Mets have a couple of spots in their starting lineup that need upgrading this winter both offensively as well as defensively. The two positions I’m referencing that are in dire need of an upgrade include catcher and center field. As I’ve stated in previous articles, I firmly believe the direction of the Mets’ entire offseason will be determined by how they address the catching position this offseason.

For all intents and purposes of this article, I wanted to cover three under the radar positional players that the Mets should consider making a trade for this offseason. While I firmly believe the Mets should be active in acquiring the top tier talent on the free-agent market this offseason, they can also easily upgrade their positional talent on the current roster with the following moves.
