Trades between the Yankees and Mets have been rare in the history of rivals in the past. In fact, the clubs have only completed 15 deals since 1966, but we may see the number 16 this summer. With the starter-needy Yankees pushing for a World Series and the Mets looking like non-competitors, the New York franchisees could trade for the soon-to-be free-agent right-hander. Zack Wheeler this month. The Yankees are already known for liking Wheeler, and the Mets would not be averse to sending him into the Bronx says Andy Martino of SNY.tv .
The Mets focus more on Wheeler's Best Offer than where they would trade him. But the Yankees are sure to have much competition for Wheeler if they seriously try to win it before July 31
st. Martino calls Atlanta and Milwaukee just a few other teams interested in the 29-year-old. The Brewers were "in love" with Wheeler's uptrend even in their last offseason, as Marc Carig of The Athletic (subscription link) said teams, the Yankees. Wheeler fanned eight over 6 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs with five hits and a walk. He still has an uninspired 4.42 ERA rating of 114 images this season, up significantly from the previous year's 3.31. However, it did not help that Wheeler faces a terrible defense, and the rest of his performance is more promising than his simple run-prevention numbers. Wheeler hit 2.53 9.71 batters per run in the run, giving him an excellent 3.71 K / BB ratio. He also induces grounders with 45.3 percent and Infield flies 14 percent of the time – the latter occupies the 13th place among the qualified starters. It looks like he's about to switch to Giant's left-handed Madison Bumgarner
as one of the first two rental starters available in July, except for a wonderful Mets turnaround. The Mets have won two games in a row, although they still have only 39:47 and six games in a crowded playoff race of the National League held. Assuming that New York decides to sell, Wheeler's trade would give the team a chance to at least partially replenish its lackluster farm system. Maybe the Mets can do this at Yankee's expense.
