Mets showing interest in pitchers Qualls and Garcia


The Mets are showing interest in Chad Qualls, according to Tracy Ringolsby of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The 32-year-old right-hander posted a 7.32 ERA with 7.5 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 59 innings for the D'Backs and Rays last year.

The Type B free agent declined the Rays' offer of arbitration, so Tampa Bay will get a supplementary first round pick if Qualls signs a major league deal elsewhere.

The Mets talked to Freddy Garcia's representatives at some point before the meetings, but the right-hander is not the team's top priority, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post (on Twitter).
