Mets Trade Rumors: Mets Will Not Trade Jose Reyes

Over the past few weeks, between the world class production from Jose Reyes and his stint on the disabled list, it became increasingly more likely that the New York Mets would not trade the electric shortstop and leadoff man, who will become a free agent this offseason.

Wednesday afternoon that suspicion became 100 percent certain, as league sources indicated to ESPN's Buster Olney that "the New York Mets are certain they will not trade shortstop Jose Reyes before the July 31 deadline."

For much of this season -- triggered by the financial distress facing the organization and early-season comments from general manager Sandy Alderson -- it appeared that the GM would do whatever it took to move the 28-year-old. With the way he has played this season -- .350/.393/.519, 22 doubles, 13 triples, 30 steals -- trade partners for the Mets could have been plentiful.

Now, it appears that the Mets will at least make an offer to Reyes this offseason ... how much he'll command, though, remains to be seen.
