Mets Targeting K-Rod, Fuentes

Adam Rubin, David Lennon, and Jon Heyman each provide info on the Mets’ search for a closer today.  Let’s take a look.

  • Rubin talked to Francisco Rodriguez‘s agent Paul Kinzer, who says that due to a paperwork mixup, he still doesn’t have K-Rod’s medical records from the Angels.  Once Kinzer gets those, the Mets and other teams will review K-Rod’s history.  Rubin says Brian Fuentes might do a tour before signing, but there are no plans for Rodriguez to visit New York.
  • Lennon says the Mets are also waiting for Fuentes’ medical records.  The Mets are fixated on Fuentes and Rodriguez, but want to interview both to aid their decision.  Lennon says the Mets will resolve their closer situation before moving on to other concerns.
  • According to Heyman, Mets people are leaning toward K-Rod over Fuentes.  The Mets may have to stretch to four years to get him.
