The Red Sox and Yankees reportedly have asked about New York Mets pitcher Zach Wheeler.
The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are looking into the possibility of trading for New York Mets pitcher Zach Wheeler, reports SNY.
According to the report, the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs are other possibilities for Wheeler, although a deal to any of the teams is not imminent.
Mets pitcher Jason Vargas and third baseman Todd Frazier are also on the block, as the Mets, who are 13.5 games back in the NL East, appear to have waived the white flag on the season.
The Mets finished the first half at 40–50, the second worst record in the National League.
Another Mets pitcher, Noah Syndergaard, is likely to be dealt during the offseason instead of the trade deadline at the end of July.
The 29-year-old Wheeler has a 6-6 record this season with a 4.69 ERA in 19 starts for New York.
