As expected, the Mets have non-tendered outfielder Eric Young Jr. on Tuesday, and will go to arbitration with their six other arbitration-eligible players, ESPN New York reports. Young, who will now become a free agent, slashed .229/.299/.311 with 17 RBI and 30 stolen bases over 316 plate appearances in 2014 for New York.

Report: Mets expected to release one player at non-tender deadline
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Mets are expected to release one player at Tuesday's non-tender deadline, according to ESPN. Team insiders said it appears Eric Young is an option to be released, while beleaguered shortstop Ruben Tejada is safe.

Young is projected to earn roughly $2.25 million in arbitration. The Mets feel they can get comparable production from a fifth-outfielder type for a lower salary, according to sources.

Report: Mets in market to acquire shortstop, left fielder
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While the Mets might be shopping veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon by the July 31 trade deadline, they also appear buyers.

The Mets would like to acquire an upgrade at shortstop over Ruben Tejada and a power-hitting left fielder to join Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson as regulars in the outfield, industry sources told ESPN.

It is also believed Mets general manager Sandy Alderson could be looking to deal outfielders Chris Young and Eric Young.
