Following many trade rumors, New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says that Curtis Granderson might not be traded after all.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, “Sandy Alderson said it would be “difficult” to trade Curtis Granderson, in part because he can play center field.”

Based on Alderson’s comments, it does not seem likely the New York Mets build up the courage to trade Granderson before the offseason comes to a conclusion.

The Mets had been talking about trading Granderson since they signed Yoenis Cespedes to a four-year $110 million contract back in November, but talks have not become too serious at any point.

Two teams that have reportedly expressed interest in the outfielder are the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles, according to Bryan Mcwilliam of the Score. Next season is also the final year of Granderson’s contract where he is scheduled to make $15 million.

It is certainly reasonable for the Mets to not want to trade the 35-year old, especially being that they will have to find a way to replace that 30 home run-type bat in their lineup.
