Corey Hart is not a top target

Corey HartThe Mets have talked to 31-year-old, free-agent OF-1B Corey Hart, but nothing is close and he’s not a top target (Martino, Nov. 11)..

“We haven’t discussed him in depth enough to say where we’d put him if we got him,” a team source said (Carig, Nov. 11).

The Mets are among a dozen teams with some sort of interest in signing Hart (Puma, Nov. 6), who missed all of 2013 with two knee surgeries.

Hart has been quite vocal about his desire to stay with the Brewers — even saying he’d return at a discount (Cerrone, Nov. 6). However, Brewers GM Doug Melvin has not yet spoken with his agents yet, though he intends to do so at some point (Haudricourt, Nov. 10).
