Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets have “concrete” interest in outfielder Michael Cuddyer.
Cuddyer will be a free agent a few days after the World Series wraps up. His 2014 was basically a lost season due to injuries, but he finished the year strong after finally getting healthy. Overall he hit .332/.376/.579 in 49 games. The year before he won the NL batting title.
Still, Cuddyer will turn 36 years-old before the regular season starts and Coors Field has benefited him. He’s certainly worth a short term deal, but if anyone can tell you that they know what they’ll get from him in 2015, let alone that they’re certain it’ll be really good, they’re probably full of it.
