NY Mets All-Star trade target German Marquez
Our final All-Star for the Mets to take a deep look at is German Marquez. The Colorado Rockies starting pitcher is already signed for several more seasons which may make him even more available for the rebuilding team out in Denver.
Young and talented, it’s tough to know what Marquez’s full potential could be on a different ball club. He has put up favorable numbers even while having to deal with Coors Field. Averaging more than a strike per inning in his career, Marquez is the kind of guy who could land with a different ball club and become a star.
The price of acquiring Marquez would put a dent in the Mets farm system for sure. Something all Mets fans have likely considered is having Charlie Blackmon added to the deal. Blackmon is on an unfavorable contract with player options for the next two seasons. If willing to pay this price in order to acquire Marquez at a cheaper price, it’s something to definitely look at.
Marquez’s availability remains in question particularly with teammate Jon Gray heading to free agency. Gray is the more likely trade candidate. Although he’s not an All-Star this year, he could make sense for the Mets.
