Chris Young Part II ???


Andy Martino of the New York Daily News was told by a source that Young has narrowed his choices to the Mets or Padres and is “more inclined” to return to New York.
“It will happen,” the person said, predicting that Young will return to the New York.
The Mets need starting pitching depth in the worst way right now, but Young is no sure thing to contribute anytime soon. He is currently working his way back from May 2010 surgery to repair the anterior capsule muscle in his right shoulder.

Current Mets’ starter Johan Santana underwent the same procedure in September of 2010 and missed the entire 2011 season. Young told ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick in January that he hopes to be pitching again by April.

Young, who turns 34 in May, posted a 1.88 ERA and 21/11 K/BB ratio over four starts with New York last season prior to the surgery. He has been limited to just 22 starts over the past three seasons due to shoulder woes.

Mets open to bringing back RHP Chris Young


Sandy Alderson tells ESPN's Jerry Crasnick that the Mets are open to bringing back right-hander Chris Young, likely on a minor league contract.  Young made just four starts for the Mets last year before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery, but he tells Crasnick that he hopes to be pitching by April and his "arm feels the best it has felt in quite some time" (both Twitter links).

Mets one of four teams interested in Jeff Francis


Jerry Crasnick of ESPN says the Mets are among four teams “keeping tabs” on LHP Jeff Francis.


Francis, 31, went 6-16 with a 4.82 ERA 183 innings over 31 starts for the Royals last season. Although he allowed 224 hits, he allowed just 39 walks while striking out 91.

It was the first time he had made more than 30 starts in a season since 2007, when he went 17-9 and a 4.22 ERA with the Rockies.
