The New York Mets have been receiving no interest in trade partners for left-handed starting pitcher Johan Santana, according to a report by Nick Carfardo of The Boston Globe.
The Mets have been gauging the interest of potential suitors but have yet to find any one interested in acquiring the 33-year-old Venezuelan.
According to Carfardo's report, New York would be willing to eat a portion of Santana's contract. Originally signed in 2008, the deal was for six years and worth $137.5 million. It comes with a full no-trade clause and includes a $25 million club option for 2014 with a $5.5 million buyout.
In four seasons with the Mets, Santana has registered a 46-34 record with a 3.18 ERA, as well as 607 strikeouts, nine complete games and six shutouts over 717 innings pitched. This past June, he threw the first no-hitter in the history of the Mets' franchise against the St. Louis Cardinals.
