A Number Of Players On The Block With The Mets Looking For Backups

Joel Sherman at The New York Times writes about the Mets and their search for backups:

According to scouts from rival clubs, Smith is part of a list of players the Mets have told other teams they are willing to trade in a desire to fill two key backup roles: a righty hitter who can play both first base and right field, and a middle infielder who can handle shortstop well.

Aside from Smith, the Mets also would consider trading Orlando Hernandez. Orlando Hernandez , Scott Schoeneweis, Jorge Sosa and Anderson Hernandez. Ruben Gotay, who was out of options and, thus, could not be sent back to the minors without facing waivers, also was on that list before injuring his foot.
