Mets Eyeing Rich Aurilia?

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News has a rumor this morning:

A New York Mets official is following the Giants and has submitted a recommendation to acquire Rich Aurilia. The Brooklyn native is likely one of the first names the Giants submitted through waivers; if so, he would clear on Tuesday.

Aurilia has about $1.5MM left on his contract this year; he's hitting .281/.334/.421 in 308 plate appearances.  He's a righthanded hitter who has handled southpaws well.  He'd be a fine platoon partner for Carlos Delgado, and he could also dabble at the other infield positions as needed.  The Giants would probably be happy just with salary relief.
