Rosenthal: Teams Have Expressed Interest in d’Arnaud, Nido

Even after trading Kevin Plawecki to the Cleveland Indians, the New York Mets may not be done dealing their remaining catchers on Major League contracts.

As per Ken Rosenthal of the The Athletic, sources have told him “rival clubs also have expressed interest in the two remaining catchers behind Wilson Ramos: Travis d’Arnaud and Tomas Nido.”

Rosenthal adds that “it is not out of the question that the Mets will trade one and sign a veteran free agent as a replacement.”

Nido and d’Arnaud are both still on the 40-Man roster, and d’Arnaud figures to serve as the backup if healthy. Although with the injury history of both Ramos and d’Arnaud, Nido figures to see time in the big leagues at some point next season.

If the Mets were to take this route, they would likely circle back and sign a veteran backup such as Martin Maldonado who they have been linked to already this offseason.
