  • Alderson recently met with free agent Chris Young in San Diego, according to Rubin. "He's the kind of guy we might re-sign under the right circumstances," the GM said. 
  • Johan Santana is in a normal progression toward Spring Training, Alderson said.
  • The Mets continue looking at Ronny Cedeno as a backup shortstop option, Jon Heyman of tweets.
  • The Mets aren’t likely to attempt to re-sign Willie Harris after agreeing to terms with Scott Hairston earlier today, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News tweets.
