Mets need another bat. Here are 3 potential trade deadline targets

The Mets‘ lineup has been a force in 2022. They lead the National League in hits and runs scored, they rank second in on-base percentage and are tied with the Dodgers for a NL-leading 110 OPS+.

Spectacular numbers aside, the Mets will almost certainly be in the market to add a bat (or two) at the trade deadline in early August. Sluggers like Pete Alonso and on-base machines like Jeff McNeil have remained hot, but the bottom of the lineup has largely failed to produce.

Eduardo Escobar, an All-Star last season, has struggled.
