The Mets have been in contact with his representatives, a baseball official confirmed. The righthander, who will be 32 on Opening Day, is a candidate to be signed by the Mets even if they sign one of the players ahead of him on the list. He could compete with recently signed Tim Redding for the No.5 spot.He's another one of those low-risk, high-reward guys the Mets rarely sign. Stockpiling pitching should be the No. 2 priority right now, behind getting a front-line starter.
Go for it.
