The Rockies could renew talks with the Mets about a Preston Wilson-for-Mike Cameron trade. Cameron has indicated a desire to be dealt instead of being moved to right field, which is where he is headed if he stays with the Mets after Carlos Beltran signed with New York.
The Mets would like to get some payroll relief but could decide to take on Wilson, who will make $12.5 million this year, because his contract has only one year remaining.
Cameron is owed $12.5 million, but it is over two years. He is scheduled to make $6 million in 2005 and 2006 and has a $500,000 buyout on an option for 2007.
