Rumor Mill: More Beltran Trade Rumors on Tuesday
There's a strong belief the best offer may come from the Rangers, tweets SI's Jon Heyman, But the hangup is he still prefers the NL Teams - ATL, SF, and Milwaukee - Who Heyman reiterates, there still in it...
The Mets' asking price has come down a bit from two weeks ago, an interested executive told Joel Sherman of the New York Post (Twitter links). Sherman says the Mets are talking two and three-prospect deals with the Rangers, Red Sox, Giants, Braves, Phillies, and Brewers.
The Mets have been turned down on requests for Mike Minor, Julio Teheran, or Arodys Vizcaino of the Braves, Zack Wheeler or Gary Brown of the Giants, and Domonic Brown or Jarred Cosart of the Phillies, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark.
Stark says the Mets are telling teams the Beltran deal isn't about money, and the team that offers the best players will get him.
