Mets News and Notes: Trade Market, Parnell, Bay

Brett Myers might be on Mets Radar
Some Mets News and Notes:

Assistant GM John Ricco tells columnist Ken Davidoff in the Post that the Mets will explore the trade market for relievers. "Our numbers are what they are," Ricco told Davidoff. "... It’s not too early to do the research. It’s probably too early to make a move, although each year there is several preemptive ones. For the seller more than the buyer.”

Davidoff goes on to list Houston's Brett Myers, San Diego's Huston Street, Oakland's Grant Balfour and Minnesota's Matt Capps (who just landed on the DL) as some of the best pieces potentially available.

Bobby Parnell will serve as the closer during Frank Francisco's stint on the disabled list for a strained left oblique.

Jason Bay was cleared to begin physical activity Monday. The first step was to ride a stationary bicycle. If concussion symptoms do not recur, he will run midweek and begin baseball activities during the weekend.

Rumor Mill: Mets to explore the trade market for David Wright

The New York Post's Joel Sherman reports that the Mets will likely at least explore the market for Wright, but there's not a good chance he'll be moved.

"We'll explore Wright's market," a team official told Sherman. "I think considering where we are as an organization, it would be foolish not to at least look at it. However, I expect actually pulling the trigger is a long shot."

The Mets have had reported financial issues, so moving Wright could make sense. He's guaranteed $15 million for the 2012 season, and New York also has a team option for 2013. If they don't renew that option, they're on the hook for a $1 million buyout.
