According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Mets asked about Jason Jennings. The Mets were known to have tried to trade for Jennings last winter. Now they can get him at a reasonable price without surrendering players.
So far in the young offseason, we've only seen the Rockies linked to Jennings. If he can prove he's healthy after having a torn flexor tendon repaired, many teams are going to view him as a potential bargain. You have to respect the fact that Jennings battled tendon soreness and inflammation since the middle of the 2006 season before succumbing to surgery (per Baseball Injury Report).
