Rosenthal also notes that there is no indication of a deal being close between the two teams.
It was recently reported by Buster Olney of ESPN that the Mets were scouting the Brewers’ Double-A team.
The 28-year-old Wheeler has a 4.33 ERA, 3.69 FIP and 109 strikeouts in 114.1 innings this year for the Mets. The Brewers recently lost starter Brent Suter for the rest of the season.
Cabrera is hitting .277/.329/.488, .349 wOBA, 122 wRC+ on the season and could provide an offensive boost to a team who picks him up. The Brewers second basemen have just a 68 wRC+ this year.
