Trade Possibilities

Johnson is always hurt. The Tigers have had a miraculous run of health this year, but that doesn't mean they should acquire more injury-prone players.

Speaking of injury-prone players, Rumor Central is reporting today that the Mets rebuffed Tiger overtures for Cliff Floyd. The Mets apparently are not interested in dealing Floyd.

Mets get a feeler for Floyd

BY ADAM RUBIN

DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

BOSTON - The Tigers recently inquired about the availability of Cliff Floyd, but were told the outfielder was not being traded, according to two baseball officials.

Floyd has been on the disabled list for three weeks with a sprained left ankle, but could return this weekend against the Yankees. After homering as a DH on Monday, he was scheduled to play the outfield last night for the first time with the Gulf Coast League Mets, but the game was rained out. GM Omar Minaya expected Floyd to at least miss the Red Sox series. "One game is not going to cut it," Minaya said.

The Mets haven't made a final determination about which player to demote when Floyd is activated, but the plan seems to remain returning Lastings Milledge to Triple-A Norfolk. The Mets finish a nine-game stretch with the DH this weekend at Yankee Stadium, and Minaya is committed to Floyd and Xavier Nady as his left and right fielders, respectively.

Floyd isn't going anywhere. The Mets are in first by a mile and will not trade one of their key bats. Interesting to hear that DD is out shopping, though!

I don't consider Cliff Floyd a key bat in that lineup. Their key bats are Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, David Wright and Carlos Delgado.
