MLB Rumors: Mets Now Have 4 Free Agent Bats On Their Radar

The New York Mets still have one more move to make to shore up their outfield, and they're apparently leaving no stone unturned in their search. 

According to various reports from multiple sources, the Mets are looking at, with varying degrees of interest, Andrew McCutchen (we reported here yesterday), Trey Mancini, Adam Duvall and Jurickson Profar.  

If McCutchen is prepared to take on a 4th outfielder role at the age of 36, he could certainly be a good fit. Profar would be another decent 4th OF type, but without the past credentials of Cutch. 

Duvall would be most useful (wherever he winds up) in a platoon role, as the RH-hitter crushed lefties last season to the tune of an .844 OPS, while managing only a .620 OPS against righties. He is only one year removed, however, from a 38-HR season, with the 2021 World Series champs in Atlanta. 

Mancini has a connection with Mets manager Buck Showalter, as he played under him in Baltimore during Mancini's first two major league seasons. He would be more of a DH fit with the ability to play some outfield. He wouldn't get much time at first base, however, his other regular spot, as Pete Alonso would be taking the vast majority of reps there.
