Mets P Syndergaard center of Tulowitzki talks with Rockies
by Marty Gitlin |

Premier Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard is the centerpiece of trade talks involving Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, per Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, who is further reporting that the teams are not close to finalizing a trade.

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.

Mets, Rockies still in talks for Troy Tulowitzki
by Igor Mello |

The Mets and Rockies have been discussing a potential deal that would sent shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to New York this offseason, Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. However, it remains to be seen how likely of a chance New York will have of acquiring Tulowitzki via trade. A source told Heyman the likelihood of a trade to the Mets appear to be "slim" at the moment.

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.

Jenrry Mejia fine if Mets decide to put him in setup role
by Michael Hurcomb |

Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia has no problems with manager Terry Collins stating the closer's job is Bobby Parnell's to lose. In fact, Meja -- who had a team-high 28 saves in 2014 -- seems fine with being a setup reliever for Parnell, who missed last season recovering from Tommy John surgery.

"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."

Alderson: 'Very high' probability Flores will be starting shortstop
by Michael Hurcomb |

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Tuesday there is a "very high" probability Wilmer Flores will be the team's opening day shortstop. His comment comes during the same meeting with the media he said the Mets are "unlikely" to submit a bid for Korean shortstop Jung-Ho Kang.

"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."
