The Mets don’t want to trade their lone All-Star, but if they received enough in return they would consider doing it according to ESPN’s Jayson Stark via MLBTraderumors.com:
Stark hears that they’d “definitely” move him if they received enough quality in return. I’d imagine the asking price on Murphy to be very high, given Alderson’s reluctance to sell off assets that are under control beyond the current season.
Murphy is hitting .284 for the Mets with seven home runs and 38 RBIs. Murphy is on a 1-year deal that pays him $5.7 million deal. That deal was completed in January and avoided arbitration. He has one more year of arbitration eligibility before he’s eligible for free agency in 2016.
