Mets trying to add starter depth, interested in Dave Bush


Dave Bush is among the starting pitchers on the Mets' radar, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter). As Crasnick notes, current Mets exec J.P. Ricciardi was the Blue Jays' GM when Toronto selected Bush in the second round of the 2002 draft.

The Rockies reportedly had interest in Bush earlier in the offseason, but the market for the right-hander has been remarkably quiet this winter.

Bush 31, was 8-13 with a 4.54 ERA for the Brew Crew. He was durable in 2010 with 31 starts and 174 Innings pitched.

Here are Dave Bush's Career Stats:

The Mets have added Bush's longtime teammate, Chris Capuano, and have also expressed interest in Jeff Francis and Chris Young as GM Sandy Alderson looks to add depth to his rotation.

Mets continue to look for lightning in a bottle as they hope that Bush's hits and HRs drop into the gloves at Citi-Field.
