According to a Major League source close to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, the New York Mets are in trade talks with the Colorado Rockies for catcher Ramon Hernandez. “I think Hernandez will be a Met,” said the source.
Rubin adds that the Mets would like to make a deal with the Rockies that includes both Hernandez and left handed pitcher Matt Reynolds. “I think he's looking to add that to the package,” the source close to Rubin said.
Hernandez, 36, is hitting .215/.260/.398 with 4 HR's, 15 RBI's and a 65 OPS+ in 101 plate appearances with the Rockies in 2012. The Rockies signed Hernandez to a two-years, $6.4 million deal back in November, 2011.
