Mets Trade Rumors: New York Pursuing Jonathan Broxton, Grant Balfour, Among Others?

The New York Mets said earlier this week that they are interested in buying bullpen arms as the July 31 trade deadline approaches. Who is still on the Mets radar on that front?

While New York is not close to finalizing any deals, they are reportedly interested in Jonathan Broxton of the Kansas City Royals (via Danny Knobler) and Grant Balfour of the Oakland Athletics (via David Lennon). Broxton has 22 saves and a 2.14 ERA this season for Kansas City. Balfour is 2-2 with seven saves, 11 holds and a 3.07 ERA for Oakland in 2012.

Other targets could include Brewers pitcher Francisco Rodriguez, a former Mets player. However, the Brewers are not certain about where they stand on selling Rodriguez. Brett Myers of the Astros is another possibility although the Mets reportedly haven't expended much effort in their pursuit (via Andy McCullough).
