Rookie New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen is diving head-first into hot stove season.

The Mets have spoken to the Cleveland Indians about a potential trade involving ace right-hander Corey Kluber, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

It was revealed earlier this offseason that the Indians were willing to listen to trade offers on pitchers Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and Trevor Bauer. The club has since been said to be more inclined towards dangling Bauer but it doesn't appear Kluber is off the table.

The 32-year-old would be a huge get for the Mets, giving them a pair of Cy Young winners in the rotation with Kluber joining Jacob deGrom. Since 2014, Kluber is 83-43 with a 2.85 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, earning three All-Star appearances and two Cy Youngs.

It seems there will be plenty of other teams looking to pry the veteran hurler from Cleveland, including the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Mets have already been active on the trade front. They nearly acquired catcher Yan Gomes from the Indians before he was eventually dealt to the Washington Nationals. On Saturday, the team reportedly completed a trade with the Seattle Mariners for Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz, a deal that had been percolating for a few days.

Despite all that activity, New York isn't necessarily finished, especially with right-handed starter Noah Syndergaard appearing in trade talks in recent weeks.
