According to Nick Cafardo in a report for the Boston Globe, citing a team official, the Mets would be willing to part with RHP Scott Schoeneweis if they could obtain an outfielder.
Cafardo, who provides a ton of information regarding the trade market, believes the Tigers could be interested in Schoeneweis.
That said, the Tigers are looking for help in the bullpen, reports Jon Paul Morosi in the Detroit Free Press.
In a post to his blog during March for ESPN.com, Jayson Stark wrote: “The Mets love Marcus Thames, but they’re not going to trade Aaron Heilman for him.”
Thames, 31, is batting .250 against left-handed pitching and .269 against right-handed pitching, while hitting 20 HR and 43 RBI in 70 games for the Tigers this season, during which he has played left field, right field and first base.
