The Mets currently project for the 13th overall draft pick next June, same as this year. The latest on the club:
- Mets GM Sandy Alderson talked at length about closers yesterday, as usual leaving the door open for most possibilities. He explained to ESPN's Adam Rubin that the closer position "needs to be a point of concentration for us," and wouldn't rule out signing one of the big-name free agent closers. He added, "There are no concessions from me," implying he's not interested in signing a stopgap closer. On the other hand, a "cheap, proven veteran" is exactly the route Mike Puma of the New York Post expects Alderson to take after listening to the GM make the same comments. No matter what the Mets decide to do, it'll all be covered in detail at our @CloserNews Twitter feed and CloserNews.com.
- Alderson expects to know early on which direction the Jose Reyes situation is headed, he told Rubin. He won't count on an early resolution, but he admitted "everything will be contingent on how that turns out." Ruben Tejada appears to be Plan B for the Mets at shortstop, writes David Lennon of Newsday.
- Third baseman David Wright is showing greatly diminished range, a rival scout tells Andrew Keh of the New York Times.
