Thursday was filled with lots of trade chatter surrounding multiple New York Mets, especially closer Addison Reed and right fielder Jay Bruce.
According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, multiple borderline contending teams have shown interest in the closer, and Reed is most likely going to leave New York before the Jul. 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
