Report: Marte trade talks ‘intensifying’ with Mets, Padres

The Starling Marte trade talks continue to swirl — and now they're reportedly gaining momentum.

Per Jon Heyman, the Mets and the Padres remain highly interested, and a deal could be completed before Spring Training. This follows a report from Jan. 18 saying the Mets and Pirates have re-opened trade talks.

Hearing Starling Marte talks are intensifying. Mets, Padres. Still a chance something gets done before spring training.
