Meet the Mets

The Mets traded prospect Coleman Crow to the Brewers for pitcher Adrian Houser and outfielder Tyrone Taylor.

The trade helps fill in a couple of gaps on the roster for a relatively low cost.

While the Mets haven’t made any splashy offseason signings yet, Steve Cohen is willing to use his money to his advantage when it comes to Yoshinobu Yamamoto.

David Wright would have undoubtedly been a Hall of Famer had injuries not cut his career short.

Around the National League East

The Braves signed righty Taylor Widener to a minor league deal.

The Marlins acquired right-hander Roddery Muñoz from the Pirates for cash considerations.

The Phillies have reportedly made an offer to Yoshinobu Yamamoto but they are unlikely to be the highest bidder for the ace.

Around Major League Baseball

The Dodgers are reportedly preparing a massive offer for Yamamoto in an effort to get both of the top free agents on the market.

With the sweepstakes for Yamamoto heating up, there are at least seven teams vying for his talents.

After re-signing with the Pirates for one-year, Andrew McCutchen said this is not a farewell tour with the team.

The Tigers officially announced their signing of pitcher Jack Flaherty who agreed to a one-year $14 million deal with the club.
