For the second season in a row the New York Mets are one of many largest disappointments in baseball, limping to a 24-34 in the course of the 2024 marketing campaign.

And a fireplace sale is perhaps coming, with Bob Nightengale of USA As we speak reporting that “a handful of their prized gamers [are] anticipated to be dealt.”

He continued: “They have yet but, however [the Mets] will quickly store first baseman Pete Alonso, designated hitter J.D. Martinez, starters Luis Severino, Sean Manaea and José Quintana, relievers Adam Ottavino, Jake Diekman and Reed Garrett, infielder Jeff McNeil and outfielders Harrison Bader and Starling Marte.”

The 29-year-old Alonso is the headliner of that group.

Whereas he is solely hitting .239 this season with a .792 OPS, he is added 13 homers, 29 RBI and 32 runs. The homers lead the Mets, whereas he is tied for the team-lead in RBI and second in runs.

However his market could also be considerably depressed, on condition that he is set to hit free company this winter, making him probably little greater than a rental for contending groups. Provided that he is hit 37 or extra residence runs in all 4 of his full MLB seasons—his 16 homers in 57 video games in the course of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season had him properly on tempo to match that mark as properly—he’ll have a market come the winter.

Ditto for the 36-year-old Martinez, who’s properly off his 33-homer tempo from a season in the past with the Los Angeles Dodgers. For the Mets, he is hit simply 5 in 32 video games because the DH.

Severino, 30, has been good this season, going 3-2 with a 3.52 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 64 innings. For groups seeking to bolster the center or again of their rotation for a playoff push, he’d make sense as a goal.

Manaea, 32, has been strong as properly, with a 3.63 ERA and 1.30 WHIP throughout 11 begins. Severino shall be a free agent after the season, whereas Manaea has a $13.5 million participant possibility for 2025.

Quintana, then again, has been tough. The 35-year-old is simply 1-5 with a 5.06 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 39 strikeouts in 58.2 innings. He’ll be a free agent as properly after the season.

Each Marte and McNeil may have markets for groups in want of outfield and infield assist, respectively, with Marte (.718 OPS, six homers, 23 RBI, 9 steals) presently the extra attractive of the 2.

The Mets nonetheless have two months till the commerce deadline. But when they proceed the tempo they set in Might, going a dreadful 9-19 within the month, count on them to develop into main sellers.
