Boston Red Sox Rumor: Mets A Trade Option For Boston

With the Boston Red Sox missing out on Todd Frazier, the New York Mets have emerged as a possible trade partner.

According to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports, Boston has scouted Asdrubal CabreraWilmer Flores and TJ Rivera to help out at third base.

The issue with Cabrera is he has only one game experience at third base in his MLB career with his primary position being a shortstop.  Cabrera has decent pop and hit 23 home runs last year while batting .280 in 141 games. The 31-year-old is hitting .247 with nine home runs and 29 RBI this year and has a team option for 2018.

Flores has two more years of team control and has been the primary starter at third this year for New York. The 25-year-old provides decent offensive production and has started to hit right-handers better.

Rivera, a rookie, makes little sense with Boston looking to use Rafael Devers as their long-term third basemen. Rivera is a contact hitter and is hitting .292 with five home runs.

It will be interesting to see if Boston will make a move with the Mets. Or if Dave Dombrowski will look for other trade partners like the Oakland A’s who have Jed Lowrie. The San Francisco Giants could also be a possibility with Eduardo Nunez reportedly being on the market.

Expect the market to develop even further as we head closer to the deadline.
