Update – 2:48 p.m.: Bart Hubbuch confirms Cora is coming back for $2 million, pending a physical.
The contract would also contain a vesting option for 2011.
He appeared in 82 games for the Mets last year, hitting .251 / .320 / .310 with one home run and 18 RBI. His season ended when he decided to have surgery on the ligaments he had torn in both his thumbs.
Cora made the same amount of money last season.
