Meet the Mets

The Mets must decide who they will add to their 40-man roster today in order to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft.

Around the National League East

The Philles have expressed some interest in free agents Carlos Santana and Jake McGee.

The Cardinals have reportedly made an offer for Giancarlo Stanton.

Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo expects to continue to lean heavily on analytics with his new coaching staff.

Around Major League Baseball

The Orioles might be forced to trade reliever Zach Britton despite his lower value.

The Rays might be in a similar situation to the the Orioles where they are looking to reduce payroll, which means many players, including Evan Longoria, could be on the move.

With the recent home run surge, free agents like Jay Bruce are no longer as valuable on the open market.

The offseason has been relatively quiet so far, but all it will take is for the right deal to be done before teams start making moves.

The Rockies and Cardinals could be interested in signing reliever Brandon Kintzler.

This Date in Mets History

Both Tom Seaver and Doc Gooden were named Rookies of the Year on this date. Seaver won the award in 1967 and Doc claimed the honors in 1984.
