Rumor Mill: Mets looking to Trade Mike Pelfrey

Mike Pelfrey has struggled through Spring Training so far, and Jon Heyman of reports (on Twitter) that the Mets would like to trade the right-hander.

A rival executive told Heyman that the "best thing for him might be to get out of New York."

Pelfrey, 28, has allowed 20 hits and 16 runs in 9 2/3 innings with more walks (six) than strikeouts (four) this spring, though the team doesn't appear to be considering releasing him.

The Boras client will earn $5.675MM this season, though the Mets would only have to pay him a portion of his salary if they release him before Opening Day.

Since becoming a full-time starter in 2008, Pelfrey has pitched to a 4.27 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 while throwing at least 180 innings in each season. He is under team control as an arbitration-eligible player in 2013 before qualifying for free agency.

DD: Right Now he is the only pitcher who has not showed anything positive towards the 2012 Season, if the Mets can get something back in return worth anything, I would have to say goodbye to Mr.Pelf ~

Mets interested in INF Ryan Theriot

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, The Mets are interested in Ryan Theriot. I posted in early December that I thought Theriot would be a good investment for the Mets after the demise of Jose Reyes.

Theriot has played most of the infield and even the outfield in the past..

CBS Sports - Jose Reyes MVP of Mets

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Jos...
Here is a excerpt from CBS Sports' Getting to know the Mets. They list Jose Reyes as their Most Valuable Player


Jose Reyes has everything you want -- speed, a good glove, a great arm, can hit for average, can hit homers and is still just 27. So what's the downside?

Well, despite his many talents, Reyes has never quite lived up to his elite potential, there are injury questions and he's in the final year of a contract that will pay him $11 million this season.

Because of his age, he'll get a pretty payday this offseason, but because of the questions the size of that payday will be determined by his 2011 season. In a way, his 2011 may be as important for him personally as it is a Mets team with low expectations.
