The ScoreReport: Concerns about Paddack's medicals scuttled Mets-Padres trade

A reported April trade between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres fell through after Mets doctors raised concerns about right-hander Chris Paddack's medicals, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post.The trade would have seen San Diego send Paddack, first baseman Eric Hosmer, and reliever Emilio Pagan to the Mets in exchange for outfielder Dominic Smith.But Mets personnel decided the trade would not make sense for the team if Paddack had to miss more than a year of action, Heyman reports.The Mets' concerns proved valid as Paddack, 26, underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this week for the second time in his career.San Diego pivoted after the reported trade fell apart, sending Paddack and Pagan to the Minnesota Twins for closer Taylor Rogers, outfielder Brent Rooker, and cash considerations instead.Copyright © 2022 Score Media Ventures Inc.

The ScoreMets' Smith: 'I would love to play every day' if there's a team out there

New York Mets first baseman/designated hitter Dominic Smith is frustrated with his playing time. "I just want to play every day," Smith said, according to Newsday's Anthony Rieber. "To be honest, that's what I want to do. I like where this team is going. I feel like I can impact this team in a number of ways, and that's being (in the lineup) every day, in my opinion."But as a person, being here since I was 22, now I'm 26, and still in the same position. About to be 27. If there's a team out there that wants me to play and wants to let me play, I would love to play every day. That's just how I feel about that."Smith entered Wednesday's action slashing .197/.280/.258 and hasn't hit a homer over 31 games this season. The left-handed hitter enjoyed his best run in the majors between 2019-2020, going deep 21 times with a .937 OPS over 139 contests."We have these projections that we obviously look at," Mets manager Buck Showalter said. "You see certain pitchers and certain types of approaches. Certain guys have strengths and weaknesses."The Mets reportedly almost shipped Smith to the San Diego Padres in early April, but the deal fell through.Copyright © 2022 Score Media Ventures Inc.
