According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the New York Mets are looking to trade right-hander Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey has struggled so far this spring, with an ERA of 14.90. He's owed roughly $6M this year, though the Mets will only be on the hook for ~$1.5M if they release him before the beginning of the season.

Neither scenario seems particularly likely, however. In fact, Adam Rubin of ESPN tweets that he doesn't get the sense that there's "serious consideration of moving him."
