The Mets may not be done: they’re talking to the Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki

Signing Michael Cuddyer is not a great move if it’s the biggest move you make. I mean, it may not be a great move anyway — it all depends on how much he can play — but it’s certainly not the kind of move you want to make your top move of the winter.

The Mets may not be making that their top move of the winter, however:

Now that would be something interesting. The Mets need a shortstop and the Rockies need pitching and you have to figure that, even if it is a longshot, these two clubs match up on paper for this kind of a deal.

On Thursday, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that the Braves and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarría reunited on a one-year, $1 million contract.

Hechavarría, 30, began the season with the Mets but was released in mid-August and joined the Braves shortly thereafter. He enjoyed more success in Atlanta, albeit in a smaller sample size. In aggregate, Hechavarría hit .241/.299/.443 with nine home runs and 33 RBI over 221 trips to the plate. More importantly, he provided versatility with above-average defense.

The Braves are banking on Hechavarría doing more of the same in 2020 as a backup infielder. He will spell Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, Johan Camargo, and Austin Riley as needed.
