Mets outfielder Jeff Francoeur wants out of New York

Mets outfielder Jeff Francoeur told the Mets front office that he would like to play or be traded so he can play everyday elsewhere. Francoeur hit .311 in 75 games after being traded to the Mets in 2009, but is only hitting .241 this season through nearly 350 at-bats.

The Mets may find a taker for the 26 year-old outfielder, but it won't come till the offseason. He may have one more arbitration year, and could become a non-tender candidate depending on how the rest of the season goes.
