Paredes has spent most of the season in the minors, where he has where he put up a line of .305/.332/.457 in 280 plate appearances. In the bigs, however, he has managed a mere .233/.272/.308 in 406 plate appearances.

Andy Martino of SNY TV reports that the Mets “have gotten to the point of exchanging names with teams” in trade talks for closer Jeurys Familia. He says that nothing is imminent, but that we should expect a Familia trade “well before the deadline.”

Familia has 17 saves in 29 appearances, a 2.88 ERA and a 43/14 K/BB ratio over 40.2 innings this season.
