Report: Royals not looking to make deal with Mets

ESPN’s Jayson Stark reports the Royals have "no interest" in making a multiplayer trade with the Mets.

Stark quotes an unnamed source who shot down reports the teams were contemplating a swap of bad contracts before Saturday’s nonwaiver deadline. Players such as Jeff Francoeur, Oliver Perez, Luis Castillo, Gil Meche, Jose Guillen and Kyle Farnsworth were mentioned in the reports.

Kansas City, though, has expressed interest in acquiring Francoeur, who was drafted by the Braves when current Royals general manager Dayton Moore was in charge of Atlanta’s farm system.
