Mets Rumors: Mets to stay quiet at the trading deadline and will not make any trades


Mets had calls on Gee, but nothing materialized

Mets Rumors:


The Mets are still saying they will almost certainly remain quiet today and not make any trades, tweets Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The Mets have been giving off the impression that they won't make any moves for several weeks.

Meanwhile, the Mets had a few calls on Dillon Gee earlier this month, but nothing materialized, according to David Lennon of Newsday (on Twitter). Now that the Mets need to limit Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler's innings, they'll hold off on parting with the 27-year-old.

Marlon Byrd has drawn the interest of multiple clubs, including the Orioles, but the Mets have maintained a high asking price with the intention of hanging on to the outfielder unless someone makes an offer too good to walk away from. The Mets have also received nibbles on closer Bobby Parnell, but haven't gotten anything good enough to seriously consider a deal.

Terry Collins was quoted saying, "If nothing happens ... I know it's in the best interest of the organization," "We've got some young players that are here that we're trying to play. If some of the more experienced people are here tomorrow, it's because they're trying to help us. You know, we owe our fans some competition, too."
