Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Mets big signing of the day was bringing in Jerad Eickhoff on a minor league deal.

The signing of James McCann was made official on Tuesday, with the four-year deal being backloaded. The Mets plan on having an introductory Zoom press conference on Thursday.

There’s reason to believe in McCann’s growth as a catcher, and that it’s hear to stay.

Anthony DiComo ranked the top 5 seasons from a starting pitcher in Mets history.

David Lennon writes that Jared Porter is the right man for the Mets GM job.

The Mets are reportedly in the mix for pitcher Jake Odorizzi.

Around the National League East

GM Mike Rizzo said the Nationals’ main goal this offseason is to get a bat that can be inserted into the middle of the lineup.

The Phillies are among the teams who are interested in Jackie Bradley Jr.

Kim Ng said the Marlins are continuing to target the bullpen market.

Around Major League Baseball

MLB owners reportedly want the start of the regular season delayed until May.

Meanwhile, the league and the MLBPA are debating when the start of the season should occur.

Aside from the Phillies, Jackie Bradley Jr. has interest from a number of other teams.

Stephanie Apstein writes Cleveland should do the right thing and change their name now, not wait for the 2022 season.
