The New York Mets have reportedly talked turkey with the Tigers about adding Kinsler to their lineup, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network:
Kinsler, 35, is entering the final year of his contract, which will pay him $11 million in 2018. He's coming off the worst season of his career, finishing with a 90 OPS+ -- the first time in his career he failed to top league average (100). Prior to this year, Kinsler had consistently been an above-average hitter and fielder. Given his advanced age, it's unclear if he'll return to form heading forward.
The Mets used a variety of players at the keystone in 2017. Neil Walker, who was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers during the season and is now a free agent, saw 66 starts there. Asdrubal Cabrera, Jose Reyes, and Gavin Cecchini also received more than 15 starts there apiece.
