Mets Rumors: Mets have to figure if either Franklin, Gregorius, or Drew is worth the price at shortstop

Mets Rumors:

The Mets are looking into several alternatives at shortstop instead of Ruben Tejada. Tejada has looked mediocre at best, only having 3 hits in 25 AB's this spring with lackluster defense.. Yeah, he went to a special clinic in the winter, but it has not translated on the field as the Mets had hoped.

The problem is, at what price do the Mets get another shortstop?

Do the Mets forfeit another draft pick and cave in to the demands of Scott Boras to sign Stephen Drew?
The Mets have been willing only to go 1 year at this point, but Drew and Boras want more. The Mets are only offering $9.5 Million, but Boras has indicated that they could look towards the $14 Million mark.

For this to work, the Mets would have to give Drew a multiyear deal. The problem is the Mets most likely will go shopping for a shortstop via free agency in 2015. The big names will be J.J. Hardy, Hanley Ramirez, Jed Lowrie, and Asdrubal Cabrera.

Second Scenario: The Mets can go out and try to trade for a shortstop. The Mariners and D'Backs have shortstops available, but the Mets have to find out if the price is right.

The Mariners have infielder Nick Franklin available, who has been on the Mets radar for some time. The Mets have sent scouts to see if Franklin can handle the position at short. The Rays and Orioles have reported some interest, but see him as a logical fit at second base. Franklin hit 12 HR's a year ago and definitely give the Mets some much added pop to the lineup. Franklin is batting .235 this spring.

Mets News: Mets cut 15 players to minor league camp

Mets News:

The Mets started to make their cuts down to minor league camp....

Left-handed reliever Josh Edgin was the most notable name dispatched to minor-league camp in the first round of cuts.

Edgin, who made 34 relief appearances for the Mets last season, was registering only in the upper-80s with his fastball.

Others sent to minor league camp: infielder Wilfredo Tovar, left-handers Steven Matz and Adam Kolarek, right-handers Erik Goeddel, Logan Verrett and Chasen Bradford, catcher Kevin Plawecki, infielder Daniel Muno, infielder/outfielder Dustin Lawley, and outfielders Brandon Nimmo and Cory Vaughn, outfielder Cesar Puello, left-hander Jack Leathersich and right-hander John Church.

The Mets sent 15 players overall to the minor-league side. That leaves 49 players still in big-league camp.

The K-Mets evened the score at 3 in the bottom half on RBI doubles by Joe Tuschak and Michael Bernal. In the ninth, Johnson City loaded the bases with one out. After Coles then fanned pinch hitter J.J. Altobelli, Bryan hit a flare into right field that bounced past the diving Cruzado for a double.
