Fresh off a horribly disappointing season, the New York Mets clearly have a lot of work to do this offseason. 

With their farm system bolstered by key trades and new leadership team at the helm, they will be exploring potential moves that could reignite their championship aspirations.

One intriguing name on their radar is the 2021 National League Cy Young Award winner, Corbin Burnes.

According to reports from Bleacher Report’s Zachary Rymer, Burnes has emerged as a possible trade candidate for the Mets in the upcoming offseason.

“A trade for Burnes will only make sense for the Mets if they decide to pull a 180 and buy this winter,” said Rymer. “If so, they could have a unique edge should they decide to push for Burnes. David Stearns was previously Milwaukee’s president of baseball operations before taking the same post with the Mets.”


Under Stearns’ leadership in Milwaukee, Burnes was drafted and developed into the standout pitcher he is today.

The Mets, who find themselves with a void in their rotation following the trades of Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, could see Burnes as a valuable addition to their pitching staff.

Rymer even proposed a trade scenario, suggesting that the Mets could acquire Corbin Burnes in exchange for promising prospects Ronny Mauricio (shortstop/second baseman) and Ryan Clifford (outfielder).

Burnes has been the subject of trade rumors for the better part of a year, and his future with the Milwaukee Brewers remains uncertain.

As he approaches free agency at the end of the 2024 season, many anticipate a potential change of scenery for the 28-year-old pitcher.

In the 2023 regular season, Burnes posted a respectable 3.39 ERA across 32 starts, adding to his impressive career stats, boasting a 3.26 ERA over six big league seasons.

His versatility and consistency make him an attractive option for teams looking to strengthen their pitching rotation.

Should the Mets go after Burnes???
