Same old story with Aaron Heilman – the Mets pitcher wants a starting job or a trade according to Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News. Rubin says not to fault Heilman for his preference – the pitcher only addresses the situation when asked, and his agent provided the quotes for the story.
The Mets simply don’t want to try Heilman as a starter, and haven’t for some time. He’s under team control for two more years, and they’re divided on whether to trade him. Rubin says at least six teams are intrigued, the Rockies included. We’ve also seen the A’s, Rays, Rangers, Cardinals, Cubs, and D’Backs linked to Heilman at various points.
