Mets Rumors: Turner, Choo, Harvey

Here's a look at the latest on the Mets..

  • The Mets are likely to tender Justin Turner an offer, writes Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.  The infielder is projected to make $800K by MLBTR's Matt Swartz and the club doesn't view that as an overpay for what Turner provides.  The 28-year-old played all over in 2013, seeing time at first base, second base, shortstop, and third base.
  • A team insider told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that the Mets officials plan to follow the Red Sox's template for rebuilding.  While they won't spend as much as Boston did last winter, they'll look to bring in several players on one- to three-year deals rather than dishing out any massive, long-term deals.  If they stick to that, they won't be among the clubs in the running for Shin-Soo Choo.
  • The Mets need to identify which holes to address as they look ahead to 2014, writes Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.  Much of their spending will hinge on whether Matt Harvey can avoid going under the knife for his partially torn UCL.
