Mets, Phillies reportedly discussing Jose Bautista trade

Jose Bautista

Jose Bautista is nowhere near as productive of a player as he was with the Toronto Blue Jays several years ago, but one playoff contender may feel that the aging slugger could provide a boost down the stretch.

The New York Mets placed Bautista on revocable trade waivers recently, and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that he was claimed by the Philadelphia Phillies. The two teams are in the process of trying to work out a trade.

Bautista is 37 and hitting just .199, so it’s hard to imagine the Mets would be asking for much in return. Bautista showed that he still has some pop when he hit 22 home runs with the Blue Jays a year ago, but he batted just .203 and his numbers have been rapidly sinking each year.

The Mets reportedly received some interest in Bautista before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, but nothing ever came of that.
