Chris Young Close to decision?


Free agent starter Chris Young could be close to choosing a new team, reports ESPN's Buster Olney (Twitter link). 

Olney cites the Mets, who have been connected to Young all winter, and also mentions that the Nationals "may be in play" for the right-hander.

When last we heard of Young, the word was that he was willing to accept a contract worth less than $2MM due to concerns about his health. 

The Mets denied they had made an offer worth more than $1MM to Young, but still reported favored Young over other free agent options as Jeff Francis.

Washington is a new suitor for Young, but like the Mets, the Nats can also offer Young a chance to pitch in a pitcher-friendly ballpark and a shot at rebuilding his value for a long-term offer next winter. 

The Nationals were known to be looking for pitching this winter, but haven't done much in that department other than signing Chien-Ming Wang and Chad Gaudin.

Mets trying to add starter depth, interested in Dave Bush


Dave Bush is among the starting pitchers on the Mets' radar, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter). As Crasnick notes, current Mets exec J.P. Ricciardi was the Blue Jays' GM when Toronto selected Bush in the second round of the 2002 draft.

The Rockies reportedly had interest in Bush earlier in the offseason, but the market for the right-hander has been remarkably quiet this winter.

Bush 31, was 8-13 with a 4.54 ERA for the Brew Crew. He was durable in 2010 with 31 starts and 174 Innings pitched.
