Mets Rumors: Mets interested in Free Agent OF Chris Young
According to Marc Carig of Newsday, The Mets are interested in free-agent OF Chris Young.
Young played in 107 games (375 plate appearances) for Oakland in 2013, batting .200 with a .280 OBP and 12 home runs. He’s a career .235 hitter with a .315 OBP over nearly 1,000 games, almost all of them in centerfield for the Arizona Diamondbacks. His best season came in 2010, where he hit .257/.341/.452 with 27 home runs, 91 RBI and 28 stolen bases.
He made $8.5 million last season, but will likely not command that much for his next deal.
