The New York Mets may be interested in having Trevor Story for a few reasons
The New York Mets are on the top of this list for a few reasons. Chief among the reasons is that Story could play shortstop in the interim, as their star shortstop Francisco Lindor is on the IL with a grade 2 oblique strain. Considering that he is “week to week” as of this publishing, Story would become their everyday shortstop.
However, assuming Lindor returns by the end of the season, the Mets could easily move Story over to center field.
Entering Saturday, the Mets center fielders had a wRC+ of 85, which is 15 percent below league average and 20th in baseball. The Mets have had a bevy of outfield injuries this year as, at one point, they had five outfielders on the injured list at the same time in May.
Currently, they are healthy but right fielder Michael Conforto has struggled all season (.203 AVG, .680 OPS) so the Mets could move center fielder Brandon Nimmo to right field for Conforto and Story into center.
All five teams of these teams (and a few more) could use Story as a shortstop or a center fielder but they have less than one week to decide on that as the trade deadline will be on Friday.
