New York Mets assistant GM John Ricco tells Mike Puma of the New York Post the team is in the market for a reliver and backup catcher. While the Mets want to remain in the hunt for one of the two Wild Card spots, the team will not be looking to make a move that would mortgage their future. Instead, we should expect the team to make a "small" by Tuesday's trade deadline.


A move for a reliever seems nearly a sure thing for the Mets. Their bullpen has been far and away the worst in the majors this season, with their relievers posting a combined 5.11 ERA.

Purely speculating, but I would imagine Mets follow their off-season plan and look for a reliever that would become free-agent at season's end, avoiding any financial commitments for the future.

Would Jonathan Broxton of the Royals make sense for the Mets? The team was linked to the righty in the off-season and is likely to be dealt.
