Update – 10:13 a.m.: Jon Heyman says the Mets have offered a minor-league deal.
Original post: Ken Rosenthal, citing anonymous sources, says the Mets are negotiating a one-year deal with free-agent catcher Rod Barajas.
Barajas, according to Rosenthal, would get the bulk of playing time over Henry Blanco, Omir Santos, Josh Thole and Chris Coste.
Last season with the Blue Jays, Barajas hit .226 / .258 / .403 and posted a .661 OPS. He hit 19 home runs and drove in 71.
Behind the plate, he threw out 34 percent of the runners who attempted to steal against him.
