If the Mets decide to move Pete Alonso across town, he might not even need to leave New York before the trade deadline.

The Yankees are reportedly a possible team to sign Alonso by the July 30 deadline, according to Jim Bowden of The Athletic. The Yankees’ desire for output on the right side of their infield is the reason for their interest.

According to Bowden, “Pete Alonso is anticipated to be the biggest power bat traded at the deadline.” The three-time All-Star might end up with the Astros, Mariners, Yankees, Giants, Cubs, or Twins. The Mets will work hard to re-sign Alonso this offseason even if they sell him. He loves New York, and they both adore the Polar Bear.

According to Bowden, the Cubs and Mets have “touched base” on Alonso.

With 26 combined RBI at a premium power-bat position like first base, Anthony Rizzo (.623 OPS) and DJ LeMahieu (.586 OPS) of the Yankees’ current first base rotation have both been below average hitters this season.

Since he broke the record and won Rookie of the Year in 2019 with 53 home runs, Alonso has been a beloved player in Queens. He has the most home runs in MLB since his rookie season and has twice placed in the top ten of the NL MVP voting.

Along with Alonso, Bowden identified starting pitcher Luis Severino as another important trade chip for the Mets. After not re-signing Severino throughout the summer, ESPN had claimed that the Yankees may chase him around the trade deadline.
