Rosenthal: Yankees, Mets, Marlins discussing 3 team deal

Update: 12 am

Original story

The Yankees and Mets have largely avoided significant trades with each other, but could that possibly change?

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Yankees, Mets and Marlins are discussing a three-team deal that would send catcher J.T. Realmuto to Queens.

The Mets have long been attached to Realmuto, and the Yankees, of course, are in need of high-end starting pitching help, especially with Patrick Corbin off the board and J.A. Happ reportedly seeking a three-year deal. This brings into question the involvement of Noah Syndergaard.

Joel Sherman of the NY Post said that a source described the talks between the three clubs as “a lot of smoke, not a lot of fire.” Sherman confirmed Rosenthal’s report that the Mets have multiple scenarios on the table, but the proposal involving the Yankees is “not among the strongest.”

This will likely be a major storyline this week at the Winter Meetings, and such deals take time to come together. Stay tuned for updates.
