The pitching-rich Mets are dangling the 22-year-old Syndergaard, who struggled at the Triple-A level in 2014 with a 4.60 ERA and career-worst 1.48 WHIP. Syndergaard has fanned 474 in just 426 2/3 innings.
Tulowitzki was hitting a league-best .340 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI before suffering a hip injury in the middle of the year. He has $118 million remaining over the next six seasons.
"They put me in the closer's job. I did my job," Mejia said Tuesday, per ESPN. "Whatever job they give to me, I've got to be there to help my team. I can throw the seventh inning, eighth inning, ninth inning, wherever. I've got to be ready to play the game. That's all. Mentally it's the same thing -- just come here and do my job.
"I feel happy to see Bobby Parnell getting ready, because we're going to have a more strong bullpen -- Bobby Parnell, [Jeurys] Familia, [Vic] Black and everybody. That has to make me feel happy, because all of my friends are going to be healthy."
"We've been looking at it. We've been talking to Alan Nero, who has represented Kang," Alderson said Tuesday, per ESPN. "It's about the transition from the Korean league to Major League Baseball. It's about questions surrounding the player's ability to stay shortstop -- or possibly having to move elsewhere. Those are really the two major issues for us. I'm not saying we won't make a bid, but I'd say right now it's less likely."
