After making some solid signings this offseason, the New York Mets still need to improve their roster significantly. According to general manager Sandy Alderson on Sunday, the upcoming noteworthy moves made during this offseason will likely come via trade, as Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports.
With holes at shortstop and the back end of the rotation, the Mets need to be aggressive during this week's winter meetings if they want to compete in both the short and long term. Along with Martino reporting that the team hopes to trade one of Ike Davis or Lucas Duda and is willing to trade second baseman Daniel Murphy, at least one roster-altering trade should occur this week.
The Mets need to take into account what they have to offer other teams as well as the different players available on the market. Here are 11 players the Mets may target during the MLB winter meetings.
