MLB Rumors: New York Mets, Arizona Diamondbacks potential trade partners?

The New York Mets spent most of their offseason toying with the idea of signing free agent Stephen Drew.

They eventually decided against such given his ridiculous salary demands, but that has left them with a hefty hole up the middle.

That has reportedly lead the Mets to explore the trade market and in recent weeks, both Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings have had their names come up in trade rumors.

Ironically enough, the Diamondbacks recently had scouts at a New York Mets game and if you’re one to believe where there’s smoke, there’s fire, we might have a burning rumor.

The most interesting sight on the back fields for Mets minor-league intrasquad games Tuesday was not newly demoted Noah Syndergaard pitching. It was the army of Arizona Diamondbacks scouts, as well as one from the Seattle Mariners, that were on hand watching Mets prospects.

Arizona is going to have a tough choice to make between Gregorius and Owings come finalizing the Major League roster in a few weeks and it’s possible one may be moved beforehand.
