Mets eye Sheets

A source confirmed to the New York Post that Ben Sheets, 31, would be among a group of second-tier, relatively low-cost starting pitchers the Mets will consider this winter.
The oft-injured Sheets, who last pitched with the Brewers in 2008, has been sidelined since February because of surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his forearm, but he expects to be healthy by spring training.
Free-agent Joel Pineiro, Jason Marquis and Randy Wolf are also in that group.
