Mets' GM Sandy Alderson would overpay to acquire Zobrist but he believes that billy beans has pulled Zobrist off the trade table, the NY Post reports.

Oakland has won 12 of its last 18 games prompting Beane to make this move. Zobrist, if acquired, would play second base for the Mets but could fill in at third and in left field. He has the on-base average Alderson loves, but for now, a deal looks unlikely and the Mets would have several contenders for Zobrist's services.

Zobrist went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run Wednesday against Colorado.

He's racked up three multi-hit games over the last four as trade rumors have swirled thanks to the A's struggling mightily this season. For his part, Zobrist is now sitting on an .815 OPS -- a significantly higher mark than the .756 and .749 he posted in the last two seasons. His speed seems to have evaporated and his power isn't what it was at its peak, but Zobrist's plate discipline, contact-oriented approach and positional flexibility would play well for a lot of teams.

Zobrist stayed hot on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with his fifth homer.

Zobrist has now moved his batting average from .202 to .250 in the last ten days and has three homers in that time period also. There are rumors that Zobrist could get dealt if the A's remain out of contention and luckily for the A's, his price is on the rise.

Zobrist was 2-for-5 on Friday night with three RBI.

After struggling upon his return for the DL, Zobrist has caught fire and has 10 hits in his last 20 at-bats with eight RBI and 11 runs. Zobrist will continue to hit in the middle of the A's lineup and looks to have finally recovered from his knee injury.

Zobrist is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres.

Zobrist has been on fire of late, notching eight hits in his last 14 at-bats, including a 3-for-4 performance in Wednesday's 16-2 rout of the Padres. He'll be held out for scheduled maintenance, as the team is still monitoring his workload after he underwent knee surgery in April.

Zobrist broke out of his slump on Sunday, compiling three hits and three runs scored.

Zobrist had been struggling mightily since coming off the DL in late May (.169 in 59 at-bats before Sunday), but maybe Sunday's game will get him going. Barring a trade (which has been rumored), Zobrist will remain in the middle of the A's lineup as long as he is healthy.

Zobrist was 0-for-4 on Saturday to drop his average to .202.

Zobrist has quietly been terrible so far for the A's in 2015. He missed a month with a knee injury, but since his return, he is hitting .169 with one homer over 59 at-bats. On the season, Zobrist only has 10 extra base hits with one steal to go with the .202 average.
