The Mets cut Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Justin Turner, Jeremy Hefner and Scott Atchison.
Sandy Alderson met with free-agent OF Curtis Granderson this past Sunday (Rosenthal).
MLB insiders predict Granderson and Nelson Cruz will end up on either the Mets, White Sox, Astros or Mariners (Cerrone).
The Red Sox are the only team to make an offer to free-agent SS Stephen Drew, despite early interest from the Yankees, Tigers, Cardinals, Twins, Mets and Royals (Cerrone).
Lastly, while the Mets are not super high on Bronson Arroyo (Rubin), they do have interest in eventually meeting with him (Cafardo).
