In their ogle for outfield attend, the Mets engaged Jackie Bradley Jr.’s agent, Scott Boras, however the facets by no design obtained finish to an agreement. And even finish to finish.
Now, with the crew’s outfield beefy, the likelihood that the Mets signal Bradley is decrease than ever — nearly nonexistent, in step with league sources aware of talks.
As SNY first reported earlier within the offseason, Bradley is searching for a contract of more than four years and $50 million. His camp, which looks on the multi-300 and sixty five days offers handed out within the previous decade to outfielders love Michael Bourn, views Bradley as more inclined to stay in center enviornment and is shopping for more.
That’s cheap, but it completely has by no design the Mets. Bradley at two years? Sure. However that’s by no design been an option.
As a substitute, the Mets interested by depth, signing Albert Almora Jr. and Kevin Pillar, two correct-handed hitters to relief up the lefty-hitting starters Dom Smith, Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo.
The thoroughly design the Mets could perhaps well circle aid on Bradley is that if there could be a DH within the National League this 300 and sixty five days. However despite the reality that that occurs, Bradley is seemingly a longshot.
The reality is, this used to be by no design a most necessary pursuit, and now it has fizzled to almost nothing. If the Mets produce signal an additional free agent, the likely target is pitcher Taijuan Walker, as SNY reported Wednesday evening.
