MLB Trade Rumors: Mike Lowell To The Mets??

New, comment

I was just reading John Perrotto's On The Beat-Weekend Update over at Baseball Prospectus, and saw this interesting trade rumor:

The Mets also seem the most likely team to trade for Red Sox corner infielder Mike Lowell, with the idea of playing him at first base.

Should the Red Sox deal Lowell, the Mets lineup would look pretty solid once Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran return to the lineup:

Reyes

Castillo

Beltran

Bay

Wright

Lowell

Francoeur

Catcher

What is Lowell's market value at this point? He has been injury prone over the last few years and has a big contract, and nowhere to play in Boston. He was traded to the Rangers for a young catcher in the offseason.

Would a High A pitcher like Kyle Allen be enough for Lowell?
