According to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi: “The Mets, according to a source, are willing to give Bay a fifth guaranteed year, or perhaps increase their offer of approximately $16 million per season in a four-year deal.”
Also included in the report the duo did not feel that the Yankees were seriously interested in Bay… at the moment.
Other updates from MLBTR:
It appears as though Lyle Overbay may be the odd man out with a rebuilding Jays.Â The acquisition of Brett Wallace could allow the Jays to eat some cash on Overbay and obtain a decent prospect.
The Mets continue to be interested in Kelvim Escobar and have offered him at least a minor league deal.
