|Possible Target Matt Capps|
Mets Fans have been talking about Jonathan Broxton pitching for the Mets, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. The New York Post heard from Broxton's agent, BB Abbot, "I don't think it will be New York for him."
However, some team will be making a happy announcement of a Broxton signing in the near future, the paper notes, since Abbot told the paper that his situation will be "resolved shortly."
The 6-3, 295-pound Broxton, a 27-year-old two-time All-Star, has spent his first seven seasons in the majors with the Los Angeles Dodgers, amassing a 25-20 record with 84 saves, 503 strikeouts, and a 3.19 ERA.
Mike Puma of the New York Post reports Matt Capps' agent Paul Kinzer said he hasn't heard from the Mets since the general managers' meetings earlier this month.
The Mets had previously told Kinzer that they had "possible" interest, but they are playing their offseason plans pretty close to the vest so far. We should learn a lot more over the next week as teams prepare for the Winter Meetings.
As for Capps, he has drawn interest from multiple teams this offseason, including the Angels, Red Sox and Twins.
