Mets Pursuing Adam Kennedy

5:41pm: Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic goes further, saying the D'Backs do not have interest in Kennedy.

2:35pm: The D'Backs are "not in hot pursuit of Kennedy at the moment," says MLB.com's Steve Gilbert.

1:34pm: The Mets and Diamondbacks are showing the most interest in free agent infielder Adam Kennedy, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  The two clubs view Kennedy as a potential starter at second base.  The Mets would of course have to unload Luis Castillo to make room.  Three other teams like Kennedy for a super-utility role, says Rosenthal's source (the Red Sox have been mentioned previously).

Kennedy, 34 in January, hit .289/.348/.410 in 586 plate appearances for the A's while playing second and third base this year.  He was released in February by the Cardinals with $4MM remaining on his contract.  The Rays signed him to a minor league deal and shipped him to Oakland in May.
