MLB Rumors: St. Louis Cardinals & NY Mets Talking Trade

The New York Mets have made it known that they are shopping David Peterson. Now, his market is starting to heat up, as the St. Louis Cardinals are making a push to acquire him.

The Mets have made several additions to the rotation this offseason, and that has made Peterson expendable. As a result, they are trying to use him as a trade piece to improve their roster elsewhere. Meanwhile, the Cardinals are aiming to add at least one more pitcher to the rotation before the start of the season, so it makes sense that they are in on him.

We will need to wait and see if these two National League teams end up making a trade centering around Peterson from here.
