Report: 'Very likely' New York Mets stand pat at MLB trade deadline

Thursday July 31st, 2014

While other teams are busy making last-minute moves, the New York Mets will "very likely" not be, reports ESPN New York's Adam Rubin.

The Mets have been connected to the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki, but it was reported that the Rockies are unlikely to deal either. Bartolo Colon was also rumored to be available, with the Mets willing to eat $2 million of his $10 million salary, but Colon's market reportedly never developed.

The Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough tweeted that the Royals have inquired on Colon but don't expect the Mets to deal him. Ken Rosenthal reported that the Nationals asked about second baseman Daniel Murphy but saw it as a long shot.

The Mets currently sit in fourth place in the NL East, 7.5 games back of the Nationals.
