What would a Mets trade package for Luis Castillo look like?

If the Reds decide to trade Castillo this offseason, a reasonable ask would be one top prospect who is also a top 100 prospect in baseball, and one other prospect inside a team’s top 10.

For the Mets, Francisco Alvarez and Brett Baty will be off-limits in pretty much any trade. So inquiring teams can forget those two.

That means that for Castillo, a fair offer from the Mets could be SS Ronny Mauricio (ranked No. 3 on SNY’s Top 20 Mets prospects list and No. 53 on the MLB Pipeline Top 100) and RHP J.T. Ginn (ranked No. 5 on SNY’s Top 20). And the Mets would need to sign Castillo to an extension to make that deal worthwhile.

One issue with the above could be the fact that the Reds have highly thought of SS prospect Matt McLain, who could make his MLB debut in 2023. But Mauricio might wind up at third base or second base long-term.

If the Reds are seeking an outfield prospect or first base prospect who’s close to the majors in any deal for Castillo, the Mets might not be a fit as a trade partner.

Elian Soto, Juan Soto’s teenage brother, plans to sign with Mets

Elian Soto, 15, a lefty swinger like his older brother, recently posted a video on Instagram with him wearing full Mets gear and the caption “Are you ready for what’s coming this year?” While Mets officials declined comment on the matter, Hector Gomez of Z Digital reported that Elian Soto, an outfielder/third baseman, indeed intends to sign with the Mets during the next international signing period, which is scheduled to begin on January 15. An official from another team confirmed that the league-wide expectation called for Soto to sign with the Mets for a bonus in the $50,000 range.

Like Juan Soto, Elian Soto is being advised by Scott Boras, who declined comment on the matter aside from confirming his representation. Moises de la Mota, the Mets’ supervisor of Latin American scouting, worked for the Nationals when they signed Juan Soto out of the Dominican Republic for $1.5 million.

7 unexpected stadiums teams called home

3. The White Sox head north to Milwaukee (20 games, 1968-69)
Milwaukee County Stadium, Milwaukee

For a brief four-season period from 1966-69, after the Braves had departed for Atlanta yet before the Seattle Pilots were reborn as the Brewers, Milwaukee had no Major League Baseball. Local car dealer, enormous baseball fan, Braves minority owner and future Commissioner Bud Selig had attempted to keep the Braves in town, but when that failed, he turned his sights to ensuring baseball returned to Wisconsin.

Selig first organized a successful exhibition game between the White Sox and Twins on July 24, 1967. (How in the world he managed to convince the White Sox to stop in Milwaukee in between a doubleheader in Kansas City on July 23 and another doubleheader home in Chicago on July 25 is another story entirely.) That led to nine regular-season home games—one against each other AL team, all starting or ending a series in Chicago—in Milwaukee in 1968, which were well-attended despite the Sox losing eight of nine and getting shut out four times.

What if Griffey had accepted that Mets trade?

This was how it was structured:

Mariners get: Octavio Dotel, Armando Benitez and Roger Cedeno

Mets get: Ken Griffey Jr.

The deal soon fell through, because Junior used his 10-and-5 rights to veto the trade.

Let’s hop in our time machine, though, and like the great explorers Bill and Ted, take a look at the six ways the baseball world would’ve changed if Griffey had said yes.

Sources: Mets Intend To Make Jeff McNeil Available On Trading Block After Lockout

Over the course of his first three seasons in the big-leagues (2018-2020), Mets second baseman/utility man Jeff McNeil produced an impressive career slash line of .319/.383/.501/.884.

However, in 2021, a number of Mets’ hitters struggled immensely, including McNeil, who slashed just .251/.319/.360 with a .679 OPS across 120 games.

Now, once the lockout ends, the Mets intend on making McNeil available on the trading block with their sights set on acquiring pitching help in return, as multiple sources told Inside the Mets on Thursday.

Although McNeil’s underwhelming performance last season was an outlier based off his overall track record, the Mets have made a significant effort to improve the culture of the team, which is why they signed a group of veteran players this winter that are known for being good clubhouse guys in Max Scherzer, Starling Marte, Eduardo Escobar and Mark Canha.

New York Mets hire Buck Showalter as new manager

The New York Mets have hired Buck Showalter as their new manager, team owner Steven Cohen announced Saturday on Twitter.

Showalter, 65, takes over for Luis Rojas, who was fired after a season in which the team held on to first place for 103 days but ultimately finished 77-85 and missed the playoffs.

Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro were also candidates for the post, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Showalter has been a major league manager for four teams between 1992 and 2018. He won American League Manager of the Year honors during stints with the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles. He also managed the Arizona Diamondbacks and has a career record of 1,551-1,517.

His most recent managerial gig came with Baltimore, where he spent eight-plus seasons from 2010 to 2018. Showalter guided the Orioles to three playoff appearances, one division title and a berth in the 2014 AL Championship Series, in which they were swept by the Kansas City Royals.

Mets manager list cut to 3 finalists

he Mets have whittled their list of manager candidates down to three, inviting Buck Showalter, Joe Espada and Matt Quatraro for second-round interviews, a source told on Sunday. The Mets did not confirm the list as they are not commenting on the ongoing process.

Team owner Steve Cohen, who sat out the first round of interviews, is expected to take part in the callbacks.

Many within the industry consider Showalter the favorite for the job given his vast managerial experience, which dwarfs that of any other candidate. A manager for four teams over 20 seasons spanning 1992-2018, the 65-year-old Showalter is adept with the media and understands New York as well as anyone, having worked in the Bronx for four seasons. He also boasts a connection to Mets general manager Billy Eppler, who reportedly recommended Showalter to Angels owner Arte Moreno when Los Angeles was looking for a manager in 2019.

Here is Mets’ preliminary list of managerial candidates

To be clear, this is not the list of people who the Mets have contacted or will definitely interview; it’s the list of people in whom the Mets have some level of preliminary interest:

Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada

Veteran manager Buck Showalter

Tampa Bay bench coach Matt Quatraro

Pittsburgh bench coach Don Kelly

Former Tigers and Angels manager Brad Ausmus

Before interviews take place, it is impossible to label a frontrunner. Having said that, it does feel like there’s early buzz surrounding Espada. In addition to his history with Eppler in the Yankees organization, Espada has been at the center of what the Astros have accomplished under Dusty Baker over the past two seasons.

Mets make outfield splash, ink Starling Marte to $78 million deal

A hectic Black Friday shopping spree concluded for the Mets with Starling Marte wrapped up and ready for placement in center field.

The veteran outfielder agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $78 million, an industry source confirmed, giving the Mets a third new player Friday. MLB Network first reported the deal, which is pending a physical.

The 33-year-old Marte was regarded as the best pure center fielder on the free-agent market. A former Gold Glove winner, he split last season between Miami and Oakland, finishing with a .310/.383/.458 slash line with 12 homers and 55 RBIs, leading the major leagues with 47 stolen bases.

Mets To Sign Mark Canha

The Mets continue to bolster their position player mix, reportedly agreeing to terms with free agent outfielder Mark Canha. It’s reportedly a two-year, $26.5MM guarantee for the CAA Sports client. The deal, which is pending a physical, also contains a 2024 club option. A Bay Area native, Canha had previously spent his entire big league career with the A’s….

Since the start of the 2019 season, the Berkeley product owns a .249/.377/.438 line over 1365 plate appearances. While he doesn’t have an eye-catching batting average, the right-handed hitter has walked in a fantastic 13.3% of his trips to the dish. That’s the 14th-highest rate among the 159 players with 1000+ plate appearances in that time. As a result, Canha’s on-base percentage is nearly sixty points higher than the league-wide mark over that span.

Mets, Eduardo Escobar agree to two-year contract

The New York Mets and Eduardo Escobar have agreed to a two-year, $20 million contract, pending a physical, per Jon Heyman.

Escobar is set to turn 33 years old in early January and is coming off a season he split between the Diamondbacks and Brewers. In total, he made 599 plate appearances and hit .253/.314/.472 with 28 home runs and a 107 wRC+ this year.

Aside from a downright miserable short season in 2020, that’s more or less the hitter he has been in recent years, as he combined for a .270/.327/.501 line and a 112 wRC+ with 58 home runs. And in each of the most recent three full seasons, he’s finished with at least 3.0 fWAR.

Steven Matz, St. Louis Cardinals reach agreement on four-year, $44 million deal, sources say

Starting pitcher Steven Matz, a key component to a turnaround season for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2021, has agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with the St. Louis Cardinals, pending a physical, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Tuesday night.

Matz could earn up to $48 million in the deal and will receive a signing bonus, sources said.

Matz, a 6-foot-2 left-hander, who found his stride in the American League East and on a team with a deep starting rotation, often stole the headlines in Toronto last summer. In just one season with the Blue Jays, he posted a 14-7 record, with a 3.82 ERA in 29 starts.

Steve Cohen is ready to let Billy Eppler spend big to fix broken Mets

Now that he finally has a general manager, Mets owner Steve Cohen is ready to open his sizable checkbook again.

During Billy Eppler’s introductory news conference as the team’s new GM, Cohen said he’s prepared to open up his checkbook in an effort to meet his goal of winning the NL East.

“It’s going to require, probably, spending, and that’s what’s going to happen,’’ Cohen said during Friday’s Zoom call, alongside team president Sandy Alderson.

“I’ve let Billy know, for the right deals and the right free agents, to go get the players we need,’’ Cohen said. “We want to be competitive, we want to win our division and be in the playoffs and get deep into the playoffs. We’ve got to field a team that has the ability to do that. I’ve let Billy and Sandy know, it’s whatever they need and I’m open to their suggestions and recommendations.”

New York Mets’ search for new GM set to land on Billy Eppler, sources say

Billy Eppler is finalizing an agreement to be the new general manager of the New York Mets, sources confirmed to ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Monday night.

Eppler, 46, previously was GM of the Los Angeles Angels and spent 10 years with the New York Yankees, ascending to assistant GM.

The deal with Eppler ends a lengthy—and much publicized—search by the Mets for a new GM.

The team fired acting general manager Zack Scott on Nov. 1, two months after he was arrested on charges of drunken driving. Scott was promoted to the role in January when Jared Porter was fired after fewer than 40 days on the job following revelations he sent sexually explicit text messages and images to a female reporter in 2016 while working for the Chicago Cubs.

New York Mets’ Sandy Alderson says New York City a deterrent in team’s GM search

Largely, though, he thinks New York itself is keeping people away.

“There are a lot of factors that come into play, but I would say it’s, you know, it’s not unforgiving, but it’s a demanding place,” he said. “Which I enjoy, by the way.”

Alderson said he has interviewed many candidates and Cohen has interviewed some. He believes the organization will make just one hire, for a general manager. He did not rule out the possibility that a president of baseball operations could be hired above that GM in future offseasons.

“Assuming we only hire one person, there will be at least a year runway for that person to demonstrate their ability and their potential,” he said. “I’ve said this to others in the past, that’s the opportunity. That’s all you can ask for. And demonstrated ability tends to get rewarded.

“If you’re looking to be comfortable, this is probably not the place, the Mets are probably not the place to come,” he added.

Alderson said he was a little surprised by how many candidates had turned them down.

He also denied that concerns about autonomy have led to some of those nos. Alderson, who has 40 years of baseball experience, will oversee whoever is hired, and his son, Bryn, is an assistant general manager.

Former Mets relief pitcher Pedro Feliciano died in his sleep on Sunday night, according to ESPN’s Eduardo Perez.

Feliciano, 45, had a nine-year MLB career, all with the Mets. The left-hander was a native of Rio Pedras, Puerto Rico. He was drafted by the Dodgers in 1995 and floated through systems in Los Angeles, Cincinnati, New York and Japan before landing with the Mets for a third time in 2006.

After making the team out of spring training, Feliciano became a key lefty specialist for the team, leading the majors in games pitched in 2008 with 86. He ranks second in franchise history in games pitched with 459, behind John Franco.

Chili Davis goes scorched earth: Mets are broken after ‘dismal’ stretch

“That organization needs a big turnaround, they need to clean house,” Davis said. “Some of the people that have been there so long during those dismal years, they need to bring some fresh faces and baseball people in there. To be honest, I don’t think Zack Scott was a baseball person. He was the head of analytics in Boston. He was an analytical guy. That’s where he belonged, in analytics.”...

“I was told it’s not about the results, it’s about the process,” Davis said. “Well, if the process doesn’t produce positive or good results, then the process is worthless, because it’s not a good process. The process is making your players better. It’s a bullcrap statement to tell me it’s not about the results, it’s about the process.

“How did the process work out [with Quattlebaum]? That’s my question. How well did the process work? It’s not about the results, so how did the process work, because everybody could see the results.

Mets expected to interview Red Sox’s Raquel Ferreira for top front-office opening

Multiple industry sources said that Raquel Ferreira, a Red Sox executive vice president and assistant general manager, will converse with top Mets officials in the coming days, with Boston’s blessing. Whether that conversation qualifies as an “interview” could be in the eye of the beholder. It’s believed that the talk will be more of a “Get to know you” session, in which both sides will determine whether they want to take this idea any further.

Ferreira, a Red Sox employee since 1999 and a Rhode Island native, is not a slam dunk to take the job if the Mets offered it to her, multiple sources said. She holds a substantive enough role with the Red Sox that when they fired their president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski in September 2019, Ferreira became part of a four-person group (which ironically also featured Zack Scott, whom the Mets just dismissed as their acting general manager) to run the club on an interim basis until the eventual hiring of Chaim Bloom. Ferreira has a hand in all areas of Boston’s baseball operations.

When Bloom came aboard, the Red Sox elevated Ferreira to an assistant GM position, making her the fourth woman to hold that title in baseball’s history. Since then, one of those four, Kim Ng (an assistant GM with the Yankees and Dodgers), became a trailblazer when the Marlins hired her as the first female general manager in any North American professional men’s sport. Appointing a woman to such a powerful position would carry additional weight for the Mets, who repeatedly drew heat over the past year regarding misbehaving male employees.

Reports: New York Mets fire acting GM Zack Scott two months after DWI arrest

Acting general manager Zack Scott will not return to the New York Mets after being placed on administrative leave following an arrest on drunken driving charges in August, according to multiple reports.

Scott’s dismissal is hardly a surprise after New York fell apart in the second half and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season. President Sandy Alderson assumed GM duties with Scott on paid leave and already oversaw the firing of manager Luis Rojas. The Mets are trying to hire a president of baseball operations for the second straight offseason under owner Steve Cohen.

Scott was hired as the Mets’ assistant general manager last offseason to work under close friend and former colleague Jared Porter. Scott was promoted to acting GM in January after Porter was fired following revelations he sent sexually explicit text messages and images to a female reporter in 2016 while working for the Chicago Cubs.

Mets Owner Steve Cohen in Talks on Sands Casino Near Citi Field

Steve Cohen, the billionaire owner of the New York Mets, is in discussions with Las Vegas Sands Corp. about a possible casino next to Citi Field, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.

The talks are preliminary, according to the people, who were granted anonymity because the matter is private. The state is currently in the early stages of exploring casino licenses in the New York City area, and any formal plan would still require a series of regulatory and legislative approvals.

Cohen didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment through a Mets spokesman. A representative for Las Vegas Sands didn’t respond to an email and voice message.

Earlier this month the New York State gaming commission issued a 14-page request for information to gauge interest in three unawarded casino licenses in the lucrative “downstate” region in and around New York City. Considered a precursor to opening a formal bidding process, responses are due Dec. 10.

Brewers GM Matt Arnold latest to say no thanks to Steve Cohen, Mets as front-office search continues to flail

Another president of baseball operations candidate — the fifth if you’re keeping track — has been ruled out for the top job. Cohen was interested in hiring Brewers GM Matt Arnold, according to sources, but on Wednesday Arnold withdrew his name from consideration, per multiple reports. Unlike some of the other executives the Mets targeted for the role, Arnold’s potential move to Mets POBO would have been a promotion. Still, Arnold reportedly preferred to continue his work with Milwaukee, where he was promoted to GM in 2020.

Meanwhile for Cohen, the list of front office whiffs is growing. Theo Epstein (former star exec for Red Sox and Cubs), Billy Beane (A’s exec VP of ops), David Stearns (Brewers POBO), Scott Harris (Giants GM) and now Arnold (Brewers GM) have all decided, for various individual reasons, not to work for the Mets.

Cohen is said to be handling the bulk of the team’s search for a POBO and/or GM, according to multiple sources. This is a variation from how the Mets managed last year’s hunt, when team president Sandy Alderson handled the majority of interviews and hiring responsibility. This offseason, Alderson is believed to be mostly sidelined while Cohen leads the process.

Cohen is mostly talking with uninformed people, like former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and folks at his hedge fund, Point72, who serve as some of his advisors during the search, according to a source familiar with the situation. Christie joined the Mets’ Board of Directors in February, and his son, Andrew, also works for the Mets as the coordinator of amateur and international scouting. Cohen keeps Alderson informed on the status of the search, and occasionally asks him to dig around for more candidates, per the source.

Mets should be all-in on Brian Sabean, winning Giants executive, to run front office

As the Mets’ search for a chief of baseball operations continues, the latest name to surface is Brian Sabean.

The 65-year-old is currently acting as a special assistant for the Giants after being their winning GM for 18 seasons from 1997 to 2014. Under his leadership, the Giants won three World Series titles and had a winning record in 13 of the 18 seasons he spent as San Francisco’s GM. Before he landed on the West Coast, Sabean began his professional career as a scout for the Yankees. He was an architect of the Yankees farm system that ultimately produced champions in Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Andy Petitte, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera.

Not only would Sabean be a home-run hire for the Mets, but he’s apparently willing and excited to be considered for the club’s open position for president of baseball ops.

A source close to Sabean confirmed to the Daily News that he very much would like another challenge in his life. He’s going stir crazy in San Francisco with essentially nothing to do (in the role of a special assistant) with the Giants. But the real attraction for Sabean would be the fact that it’s New York and it’s the Mets, the source said. Unlike Billy Beane, who was reluctant to uplift his family and roots from the West Coast to New York City, the source close to Sabean said he would do it in a heartbeat if the Mets offered him the job.

Where Mets may turn next as Sandy Alderson’s role in search comes into question

Phase 2 of the Mets’ search is underway, with names such as Josh Byrnes (Dodgers), Brandon Gomes (Dodgers), Scott Harris (Giants), Matt Arnold (Brewers) and Peter Bendix (Rays) potentially on the radar, according to sources. But the odds of the big splash team owner Steve Cohen has sought have substantially subsided.

“The Mets are in a tough spot, because I don’t think fans are going to buy into them bringing in another unknown,” a rival executive said Tuesday. “I see some of those names that are mentioned, and nothing against them, but a lot of them are just new guys and you hire new guys, you are going to go through the same thing again.”

Among the questions buzzing through the industry is whether Sandy Alderson is empowered to hire or even identify candidates to become the next leader of the Mets front office or if Cohen has essentially pushed aside his team president and is leading the search.
