The New York Mets have been looking to upgrade their lineup and fortify their rotation as the trade deadline approaches. They have been decimated by injury to both areas and have been scouting around the market. It appears that there is some traction on a deal potentially moving forward. With both Jacob deGrom and Francisco Lindor out due to injury, the Mets appear to have found a good trading partner in the Colorado Rockies to help flatten out their roster.
“Get your popcorn ready in New York as the Mets and Yankees are expected to rock the deadline. You might need extra butter and salt for the Mets, as I’m hearing a trade sending Story and Jon Gray from Colorado to New York might happen.”
The story also mentioned that the New York Yankees also continue their pursuit of Story. If this rumor comes to fruition, the Mets would be essentially set for a deep playoff run. They have Carlos Carrasco coming back this Friday, Jacob deGrom at the beginning of August, Francisco Lindor shortly after, and a few other IL’d players also on the way.
Stay tuned for the latest.
