Luis Hernandez Drawing Trade Interest

Mets infielder Luis Hernandez is drawing trade interest, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin.  The Mets appear poised to give the backup middle infield job to Chin-lung Hu instead.  Hernandez is out of options, and Rubin does not think he would clear waivers.  The Mets signed Hernandez to a minor league deal back in February of last year.

Hernandez's trade value is limited, as glove-only middle infielders are not hard to come by in most organizations.  MLB.com's Corey Brock can envision the Padres having interest (Twitter link).  The Padres are known to be eyeing Alberto Gonzalez and Robert Andino, who are both out of options.  For our full list of out of options players, click here.

We’ll gladly take Kevin Slowey for him.

We’d probably even take Sevin Klowey for him, too!

Kevin Fastey might cost a little extra.

i’m surprised not to see nick evans, who is also out of options, in any trade rumors.

Or maybe he’s been building his trade value.

I think he just sees him as the only natural 2nd baseman in the org who is major league ready (barely). I doubt he’s as high on him as people are saying.
