The Mets should continue to try to get younger. They’re close to being competitive, and moving Wright for a few pieces could be the key.

The questions about Wright this offseason will be focused on health. When healthy, he’s one of the most productive third-baseman in the game. But he’s been nursing a shoulder injury all season, an injury that is going to keep him out for the rest of the year, and he’s on the wrong side of 30 so there’s no way to guarantee he’ll return to an All-Star level.

Like the Tulowitzki deal, the Sox would be taking on a talented player with a big contract who could be real hit or miss due to injury.

Potential Deal: Brock Holt, Deven Marrero, Johnson for Wright

Holt would give them a player they could plug immediately into the lineup at any position while they’d finally have a shortstop in Marrero. Don’t sleep on Johnson either. He’s a solid left handed pitcher who some say could be better than Owens.
