The Mets are looking to sign a starting pitcher to a short-term deal, and they reportedly have interest in Bartolo Colon and Johan Santana, among others…
1:45 pm: Colon’s asking price keeps going up, he now wants a two-year deal (Rosenthal, Dec. 11) worth around $20 million (Gammons on MLB Network).
10:14 am: The Yankees are interested in Santana, but he would have to shave his facial hair to join their organization (Marchand, Dec. 11).
9:45 am: The Mets are considering Colon, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Bruce Chen and John Lannan (Heyman, Dec. 10), and they have talked to the agents for Freddy Garcia (Puma, Dec. 10), Paul Maholm (Puma, Dec. 10) and old friend Johan Santana (Lennon, Dec. 10).
Sandy Alderson said this week that he is looking to add a starting pitcher, but he’s reluctant to give a multi-year deal.
