The New York Mets are focused on an in-season trade to acquire a shortstop that the team can control for many seasons, but "there has been nothing lately" between them and the Seattle Mariners, with a focus on SSs Brad Miller or Nick Franklin, according to one source. The Mets are also monitoring Arizona Diamondbacks SS Didi Gregorius. New York, in the meantime, will see if 2B Wilmer Flores can handle the position.

The New York Mets reassigned 2B Wilmer Flores to minor-league camp.

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is expected to open the season as the starting shortstop, with SS Omar Quintanilla backing him up. 2B Wilmer Flores will continue to make spring starts at shortstop, and he's expected to see more action at the 6 to start the year at Triple-A Las Vegas. The team hopes Flores' winter conditioning work will improve his range at shortstop. The Mets could consider bringing Flores up to replace Tejada if Tejada struggles early on.
Fantasy Tip: Tejada will be on a very short leash to start the year, and don't rule out the Mets making a trade if they feel they need to. Don't think about putting Tejada on your roster unless you're desperate for at-bats in an NL-only league.

New York Mets 2B Wilmer Flores will receive his third spring start at shortstop Tuesday, March 18, although manager Terry Collins said the move is unrelated to the struggles of SS Ruben Tejada. Tejada is hitting .120 (3-for-25) in camp. "I want to play him at shortstop," Collins said about Flores. "He's gone to this (fitness camp) thing this winter to where he worked very, very hard on his agility. I want to see it in action. The best place to see it is out in the middle of the field."
