Poll: How many years for Bourn, if draft pick is protected?
According to multiple reports, the Mets have discussed signing free-agent OF Michael Bourn, who has been seeking a five-year deal worth around $15 million a season. However, other reports have suggested he might instead sign a one-year deal and test the free-agent market again next winter.
The Rangers and Mariners are also reportedly interested in Bourn.
As it stands, teams would have to surrender a first-round draft pick to sign Bourn.
However, the Mets are lobbying MLB to get their No. 11 overall pick protected, meaning Bourn would not cost a pick.
