Mets remain interested in Breslow
The Mets reportedly remain in contact with free agent reliever Craig Breslow, according to FOX Sports colleagues Jon Morosi and Ken Rosnethal.
Breslow, 34, has garnered interest from a number of teams already this offseason, despite a disappointing 2014 campaign. Although the southpaw posted an unsightly 5.96 ERA over 60 appearances with the Red Sox this past season, he had racked up a collective 2.82 ERA over the previous six seasons, including a 1.81 mark in 61 outings in 2013.
Acquiring another left-handed reliever is a known priority for the Mets, but they figure to have plenty of competition when it comes to Breslow. The Orioles are among the other teams known to be interested in Breslow, but that list is likely to grow as the offseason progresses.
