Pete Alonso became the face of the New York Mets franchise when he crushed 53 home runs in his rookie season of 2019. Since then, Alonso has been a consistent 40 HR/100 RBI guy while making two All-Star appearances in the past three seasons. 

But the Mets overspent this offseason and are in disarray. New York had the highest payroll in baseball history. Yet, as September approaches, the Mets are in last place in the NL East  - and it's the latest they've been in last place in a season since 2005. 

High-priced pitchers Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander have already been shipped out of town. Alonso, who will be 29 by the start of next season, could be next. The Mets strongly considered trading Alonso to the Milwaukee Brewers prior to the trade deadline. With just one more season of arbitration until he becomes a free agent, Alonso might be on the move this offseason. 

Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson has updated his hypothetical MLB odds as to where Alonso is playing for the 2024 season.

Alonso has one of MLB’s most-powerful swings. This season, however, his average plummeted. As of Aug. 29, he was hitting .221, 32 points below his career average and 50 points under last year’s mark. 

Still, there are many teams who would love to add Alonso to the clean-up spot. His consistency at the premium position of first base doesn’t hurt. The Mets have failed to make substantial progress on an extension for Alonso. Teams have been told that anyone not signed after 2024 is available, as New York’s master plan is more pointed to the near future. 

While the Mets aren't shopping him, they've also made it clear they'll listen to any and all offers. 

“The fact that they had every opportunity to sign this guy, and didn’t, speaks volumes about his future,” one GM told USA Today. 

Who Is In The Running To Trade For Alonso?

The Mets are in the running, but it appears they’re very prepared to move on. Alonso is reportedly seeking upwards of $200 million in a long-term deal. That’s a huge number that prices out a majority of MLB teams – for 2025. As for 2024, Alonso is a modestly priced slugger that most teams could afford to bring in. 

Most of the teams atop these MLB odds are quasi-contenders that could use a slugging first baseman now, some of which could splurge to sign Alonso to a long-term deal.

The Chicago Cubs lead the way. They're likely to lose Cody Bellinger to free agency and have a need for a slugging first basemen. They've also signaled a strong desire to return to relevancy, signing Craig Counsell to the richest manager contract in history and strongly in the hunt for Shohei Ohtani, among others. The Cubs have reportedly dangled starting utility player Christopher Morel in a potential trade, which is a good start. 

The San Francisco Giants have been offering money to big-time targets, to no avail. Acquiring one via trade might be the better option for a team that also has the ability to sign him long-term. 

The rising Seattle Mariners lead an ultra-competitive AL West. Each team has a hole at first base and a slugger in the middle of their lineup. The Boston Red Sox could be on the verge of returning to postseason competitiveness. Both have strong incentives to pursue Alonso. 

The Los Angeles Angels appear likely to lose Shohei Ohtani this offseason. But Mike Trout will be back, and other moves made this past season for a run will return, too. While the moves don’t seem to pan out, the Angels are a team that tries. 

The Field includes a slew of teams that may not have a spot at first base, but could use a big-time slugger and an open spot at DH. That includes the San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles
