The New York Mets appear to be trying to improve their offense and stabilize their bullpen in what could result from a potential trade with the Chicago Cubs.
That New York Mets are probably on their way to the playoffs (according to FanGraphs, they have a 99.7 percent chance). They are reportedly looking at a trade with the Chicago Cubs that could improve their odds.
According to Pat Ragazzo fan nationthe Mets have discussed a possible trade package for Willson Contreras and David Robertson.
The two could undoubtedly improve New York’s offense and stabilize their bullpen.
David Robertson and Willson Contreras could solve the Mets problems
Robertson has done great as a relief pitcher so far this season. Over 39.1 innings, he has a 1.83 ERA, a .147 batting average and a .99 WHIP. He keeps proving he can finish a game well.
Contreras could be used in a variety of ways in New York. He is undoubtedly a talented catcher. He started in the 2022 All-Star Game for the NL team, his third All-Star appearance.
But his racket could also be valuable. This season he’s hitting .261/.376/.475 for an OPS of .851 and has an isolated performance of .215. If Contreras joined the Mets, he would have the best onbase percentage, second best hitting percentage and third best isolated power. He would be good as a catcher and designated hitter.
The two would undoubtedly be one of the best package deals the Mets could hope for. They’re probably already on their way to the playoffs, but this upgrade could improve their chances of making it further into the playoffs.
