Price tags are very high on JD Martinez, Wilson Contreras. Find out the details of the Red Sox, plus where the Mets and Cubs stand in the trade talks. It’s pretty clear things are about to get over the wire. Tuesday evening from 6 pm. The trading deadline expires on August 2.
Boston Red Sox currently DH JD Martinez
According to sources, the Boston Red Sox are currently seeking at least three pieces for DH JD Martinez. Which will be centered around a top five prospect, a major league player and an extra piece and/or cash.
Martinez doubled and raided the Milwaukee Brewers
The New York Mets have recently been searching and monitoring Martinez. Those who are suffering from back cramps. On Sunday, Martinez broke the 0-for-25 stretch by doubling twice and knocking in a run in a Red Sox 7-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Currently between the Mets and the Red Sox
The current belief is that at the moment there seems to be no trade close between the Mets and the Red Sox. The Mets are interested in Martinez. But not for the current price. That said, these things can change. Because we have reached the deadline on Tuesday.
As mentioned earlier. If the Red Sox doesn’t go below the ask time limit, that’s hard to imagine for a hired player. Which is a down year, so the Mets can essentially trade Ronnie Mauricio (the No. 3 prospect), Dom Smith. Who is a player who likes Boston, and cash or other lower level minor leaguers.
The exclusion of Mauricio, recent acquisition Daniel Vogelbach (left bat who plays vs RHP) and the inclusion of right-handed bat JD Davis makes more sense. However, the Mets have indicated That they are unwilling to give up a top prospect for a rental piece or pieces. Among them is 34-year-old Martinez.
Martinez’s teammate to the Mets, catcher Cristian Vazquez
Martinez, a typical DH, doesn’t fit on the same roster as Vogelbach. However, he is a big masher and, while healthy, can be a big influence in the middle of the Mets lineup. The Mets are also interested in Martinez’s teammate, catcher Cristian Vazquez.
Reliever david robertson
The Mets are on Chicago Cubs catcher Wilson Contreras. Interested in pulling off a package deal? Including reliever David Robertson. But even on that side the question remains more. Talks on that front had calmed down till a few days ago. But soon there was hope to rise again.
