Speaking with MLB Network’s John Heyman on his podcast (Big Time Baseball Podcast), New York Mets team president Sandy Alderson provided an update on the issue George springer Saga
The 31-year-old Springer provided the tee with New York needs. A skillful center fielder with a powerful bat meets the criteria of any team, but the Connecticut native has appeared as a shoo-in to land in Flushing all winter.
The Toronto Blue Jays are Springer’s most visible suicides outside the Mets, but apart from those two teams, there hasn’t been much (publicly known) traction to speak of.
Also, with the addition of Francisco Lindor And Carlos Carrasco Payroll this season, some roster gaps still to be filled, and contract extensions coming for Lindor, Michael conforto, And others likely, the Mets may not be in as strong a position as they have been late.
However, as Alderson noted on Heyman’s podcast, the Mets and Springer still keep an eye on each other.
“Given the level of enthusiasm [and] Alderson said, “I think the excitement around the Mets. I don’t think we’re out of their list.” “I’d say we’re still busy, in the loose sense, with Springer.”
With a hole in center field yet to be filled and there is a clear interest on both sides, everyone can play a little harder to get the bus. Equal for this time of year.
We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
