The New York Mets are planning to keep Pete Alonso.
New York isn’t expected to engage with other clubs about a potential deal involving the star first baseman before the Aug. 1 trade deadline, according to Andy Martino of SNY.
Alonso, who’s arbitration-eligible through 2024, has gone deep 26 times with a .790 OPS over 85 games this season en route to becoming an All-Star for a third time in five years.
The underachieving Mets reportedly haven’t discussed specific players with other clubs yet. However, trade talks could intensify in a week if the team doesn’t go on a big winning streak, a source told Martino.
Tommy Pham, Mark Canha, David Robertson, and Omar Narvaez are likely names to watch on the trade market since they’ll be free agents after the 2023 campaign.
The Mets enter Monday’s action 8.5 games out of the NL’s final wild-card spot and 18.5 games behind the division-leading Atlanta Braves.
