The New York Mets are currently in last place of the NL East standings, but it's not the time to hit the panic button just yet. However, the Mets should consider trading Matt Harvey if they continue to slide in the next couple of months.

The Mets have an 11-15 record after the first month of the season and they just trail the Washington Nationals six games for first place in the NL East. The offense is struggling, while the pitching has been very inconsistent.

Add the fact that Noah Syndergaard could miss time arm injury and the Mets appear to be in trouble, per Bleacher Report. They are just two years removed from winning the NL title and going to the World Series, but they need to make a decision regarding Harvey, who is a free agent at the end of the 2018 MLB season.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Mets will get a lot of inquiries and possibly offers for Harvey if they continue to struggle. Olney noted that New York might be willing to listen since they want the best possible return for one of their aces. Here are the three potential destinations for Harvey if the Mets decide to trade him.

Houston Astros

The Astros are currently the best team in the AL and they are legit contenders this season. They have a great offense, but they need to trade for a starting pitcher like Harvey if they want to solidify their rotation. The Astros have a loaded farm system and they could easily put up a nice offer for Harvey.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies are one of the surprise teams early in the season. If they can continue to maintain or even exceed expectations, they would need to upgrade their starting rotation. Just like the Astros, the Rockies have the farm system depth to possibly acquire Harvey from the Mets.

New York Yankees

The Yankees are off to a hot start and if they can sustain it, they are one pitcher away from contending for a playoff spot. The team is ahead of schedule, but they could possibly acquire Harvey if they cannot reach an agreement for Jose Quintana of the Chicago White Sox.
