The Mets are interested in signing RHP Lance Lynn or RHP Alex Cobb if the price is right, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Jim Duquette first reported that the Mets were exploring the second-tier free agent starting pitchers market Thursday night on SNY's Mets Hot Stove.
"I'm told that they're starting to target an innings-eater, just because of the way the market has come back," Duquette said.
Despite signing third baseman Todd Frazier to a two-year deal Monday night, New York could still make a run for a starting pitcher, according to the New York Post's Mike Puma.
Lynn, 30, missed 2016 through injury but enjoyed a successful return in 2017. He had a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across 186 1/3 IP with 153 K with the Cardinals.
