According to Mike Puma, the Mets are optimistic landing star center fielder George Springer. Most rumors around Springer indicate it’s Mets vs. Blue Jays.
In recent reports the Blue Jays offered Springer a 5 year deal, below his 150 million asking price.
Springer is coming off a solid season where he hit .265/.359/.540 with 14 homeruns and 32 RBIs. Accounting for a 146 OPS+.
In a recent article I took a look at Springer’s defense, which is still pretty solid. A good RH bat plus better defensive CFder should be a prime target for the Mets.
