Andy McCullough of the Star Ledger tweets that the sides are nearing a deal and that Cedeno is still considering his options.
The Mets seek infield depth behind Ruben Tejada and have been linked to free agents such as Cedeno, Jack Wilson and Ryan Theriot.
The Pirates declined Cedeno's option earlier this offseason, after he posted a .249/.297/.339 line in 454 plate appearances. The Red Sox and Pirates were also linked to Cedeno earlier this offseason.
