Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday that he has had "virtually no discussions with anyone" about a trade involving Jon Niese.

Many speculated that the Mets would field offers for both Niese and R.A. Dickey at the Winter Meetings, but so far the great majority of the conversations have been about Dickey. While Dickey's value is at its peak coming off his Cy Young season, many believe that Niese is more valuable since he is under contract through 2016 and has affordable club options for 2017 and 2018.
