Mets on verge of trading Jeff Francoeur to Rangers

According to SI.com's Jon Heyman, the Mets are discussing a trade that would send outfielder Jeff Francoeur to the Rangers for infielder Joaquin Arias. Francoeur is having an off year with the Mets, hitting a disappointing .236 through 123 games and a .293 on-base percentage. The Rangers are in need of an extra bat down the stretch and hope a change of scenery will help him and the team.

The Mets probably wouldn't have much use for Arias, but he is hitting .276 in 98 at-bats this season and could see some time at first, second, and third base.  

Stay tuned.
