As the New York Mets' downward spiral continues, the team is making impending free agents available via trade. 

Per ESPN's Buster Olney, the Mets are "willing" to hear trade proposals for Curtis Granderson, Addison Reed, Jay Bruce and Asdrubal Cabrera, among others. 

According to Marc Carig of Newsday, Cabrera has told the Mets he'd like a trade and would like to play shortstop.

Among that group of players available, Cabrera is currently on the 10-day disabled list with a thumb injury. Reed has been exceptional in the closer's role with 39 strikeouts and five walks in 36.1 innings. Bruce has been a bright spot in the lineup with a .269/.340/.541 slash line and team-high 19 homers. 

Injuries have hampered the Mets all season. In addition to Cabrera, they also have Neil Walker, Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler and David Wright on the DL. 

The Mets enter play on Friday with a 31-41 record, including eight losses in their last 10 games. They are 12 games behind the Washington Nationals in the National League East and 14.5 games out of the second NL wild-card spot.
