David Wright to the Phillies? Players the New York Mets Can Get in Return
Wright has been one of the faces of the Mets franchise and is one of the best third baseman in baseball, so it is hard to see the team trading him to one of their most hated rivals.
If a deal were to go down, the Mets would need to receive a number of top prospects in return.
Again, the Mets must get a number of top prospects in exchange for Wright. The Phillies have no better prospect than Domonic Brown.
Entering the 2011 season, Brown was ranked as the fourth-best prospect in the game by Baseball America.
Brown has 20/20 potential while batting over .300, and could immediately be slotted into the Mets' lineup.
He would be the headliner of any deal for Wright.
Along with Domonic Brown, Vance Worley was one of the players that ESPN's Jayson Stark mentioned when discussing a possible David Wright deal during a radio interview.
Worley burst onto the scene during his rookie season. He won 11 games while posting a 3.01 ERA.
The Mets need pitching help and Worley could immediately step into their rotation.
If David Wright is traded away it would seem as if the Mets would put all of their effort into re-signing star shortstop Jose Reyes. However, they might get out-bid for him.
The Mets could ask the Phillies for Freddy Galvis as part of a deal for David Wright.
Galvis is a major league-ready shortstop who is the heir apparent to Jimmy Rollins in Philadelphia if Rollins is to leave this offseason.
It has been said that a team can never have too much pitching. The New York Mets have already added to their farm system this year when they picked up Zack Wheeler from the San Francisco Giants in the Carlos Beltran deal.
New York could add another top minor league pitcher in the Wright deal. Brody Colvin entered the year as Baseball America's 56th-best prospect.
While he struggled a bit this season, he is just 20 years old and is full of potential.
Ever since Mike Piazza left the New York Mets, they have been looking for a solid replacement at catcher. They have not had much success in finding one.
Sebastian Valle could become the player that is finally able to successfully fill that role. Valle is still young and is a few years away from the majors.
He has a lot of power potential, but his defense is a bit suspect at this point in time.
