Mets Trades: Three players we should expect to get shopped this summer
What will the New York Mets be looking for at this year’s trade deadline? If you think like me, life is mostly a waste of time and we spend far too much time standing in line and catering to people who don’t care about us. You may also believe the Mets will look heavily at upgrading their bullpen.
The Mets have a lot of solid major league depth this season. I really dig what they did with the roster. Other than the bullpen, it’s a solid roster.
This won’t prevent them from shopping some of their big league players. This summer, as we near the trade deadline, these two big league players and notable prospect in the system are my favorites to get traded.
J.D. Davis is the clear favorite for the Mets to trade this summer
Heroes never die nor do trade rumors involving J.D. Davis. The team’s starting third baseman doesn’t seem like someone the front office is prepared to fully commit to. This past offseason’s hottest rumors centered on the team looking at a potential upgrade at the hot corner. They’ll surely return in the summer months when buyers attempt to add talent to the roster.
Even if Davis does perform well for the Mets down the stretch, I expect him to get shopped around. His suspect defense might be too much for them to make any sort of commitment.
Because of his age, affordability, and talent, there should be teams out there looking at Davis as a suitable piece for their ball club. He has hit well in the past and doesn’t look completely cooked.
In fact, Davis might be in the early stages of a promising career.
Even so, of all of the players on the big league roster, it’s Davis you could bet your life on getting shopped around.
