The Mets talked about Ike Davis with the Rays and Brewers, though Milwaukee would prefer to first try and re-sign Corey Hart.
The Mets seem to be asking teams for young pitching when discussing Daniel Murphy and Davis, according to Andy Martino of the Daily News. For instance, they asked the Orioles about Dylan Bundy, but were immediately turned down.
The Mets asked the Mariners about 2B Dustin Ackley, and they have some sort of interest in free-agent pitchers Bronson Arroyo, Bartolo Colon, Bruce Chen, John Lannan, Paul Maholm, Freddy Garcia, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Johan Santana.
The Mets continue to show interest in free-agent Stephen Drew, as they are still looking to acquire a shortstop. That said, The while the Indians are listening to offers for SS Asdrubal Cabrera, the Mets are not interested.
The Mets did meet the agent for Cesar Izturis, who they view only as a possible back-up infielder.
The Mets and D-Backs met Monday, but did not find any common ground. Arizona reportedly has a surplus of young shortstops.
Lastly, the Mets re-signed Jeremy Hefner.
