The Mets are not getting into a bidding war with the powers of AL East and/or the Twins.
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports:
Problem is he is too pricey.
Fuentes wants more than $5 million per season on a multi year deal, several execs say. Those terms are affordable for a closer, high for a setup man and exorbitant for a specialist.
Fuentes numbers against lefties/righties are not bad.
Here are his splits:

|Right / Left||AB||R||H||2B||3B||HR||RBI||BB||HBP||SO||SB||CS||AVG||OBP||SLG||OPS|
Do the Mets need a lefty in the pen? Yes.... But think more like Joe Beimel.. The Mets are looking for the price to drop and only have about 5 Mil or so to play with. They probably would want to sign a starter along the way.. Can anybody say Chris Young.?
