The MLB trade deadline is roughly six weeks away, which gives teams like the New York Mets until July 30 to figure out what, if any, moves they want to make.

While the Mets are likely out of contention for a playoff spot, they may want to push the reset button and look to stock their farm system by trading star first baseman Pete Alonso, who is considered the biggest power bat to be traded by Jim Bowden of The Athletic.

One NL executive thinks it will be a very tough decision for the Mets.

“They have the money to sign whoever they want, whenever they want,” the exec said, via Mark Feinsand of “The wild card in the whole thing is whether they, as an organization, are willing to punt on the second half of the season or whether they want to bet on their high-dollar guys to play better and try to make a late push.”

Alonso is set to be a free agent after the season. He turned down a seven-year, $158 million extension offer from the Mets last year and is expected to command over $200 million on the open market. There has been some chatter that New York could potentially trade him now and then attempt to re-sign him over the winter, but that is obviously easier said than done.

Should the Mets put Alonso on the market this summer, he's expected to have multiple suitors. Teams like the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Seattle Mariners, or San Francisco Giants would all make sense as potential trade partners.

Mets could move others amid Pete Alonso indecision

While Alonso may be the most high-profile player the Mets could trade at the deadline, he will almost certainly not be the only player available if the team decides to tear it down over the next six weeks.

Outfielder Starling Marte, designated hitter J.D. Martinez and starting pitchers Luis Severino and Sean Manaea are other players who may interest teams, although the fact that Marte has another year left on his deal at a tick under $21 million may be off-putting.

The Mets will most likely gauge interest in any of their veteran players who could make for interesting trade candidates. Plus, if they move Alonso, nothing is really stopping them from attempting to sell off other pieces, as well.

The bottom line is that the Mets aren't very good. The team is 31-37 and sits two-and-a-half games out of the final Wild Card spot in the National League. The fact that New York is that close to Wild Card contention says more about the state of the NL than it does about the Mets, but no one is taking New York seriously as a legitimate contender – as there are a whopping five teams between them and the final Wild Card spot.
