Recap: Tuesday’s Hot Stove, presented by Citi

The Mets are definitely seeking a power-hitting corner outfielder, and are continuing to pursue free-agent outfielders Nelson Cruz and Curtis Granderson, among others (Heyman).

Cruz is looking for a four-year, $75 million contract (Heyman).

Sandy Alderson said the Mets asked the Brewers about OF Ryan Braun, but the Brewers are not interested in moving him (Heyman).

Also, “We’ve reached out to other clubs about shortstops,” Alderson told reporters Tuesday night.

The Mets officially announced the signing of OF Chris Young to a one-year contract.

The Rays like Ike Davis, but the Rangers like David Price and can offer 1B Mitch Moreland to get him, which would take the Rays out of the running for Davis (Martino). However, the Rangers may be leaning towards keeping Moreland (Rosenthal).

The Rockies are shopping OF Dexter Fowler and are looking to acquire relievers and a hitter (Renck).

“I think Sandy has a plan in place and I think he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve starting at the winter meetings,” David Wright said on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. ”I fully expect us to be a much better team moving forward.”
