Mets “Very Unlikely” To Trade Reyes In Season

Amid reports of "secret" extension talks, Mets GM Sandy Alderson told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that they are "very unlikely" to trade Jose Reyes in season (Twitter link). He said that was true even before the shortstop was placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

Over the weekend we heard there was "almost no way" the Mets would deal their star, and Alderson's statement reinforces that position. The team may also be considering a substantial contract offer when Reyes hits free agency after the season. Either way, other clubs don't figure to stop calling since Alderson could just be posturing.
