In their search for outfield help, the Mets engaged Jackie Bradley Jr.’s agent, Scott Boras, but the sides never got close to an agreement. Or even close to close.
Now, with the team’s outfield full, the likelihood that the Mets sign Bradley is lower than ever -- practically nonexistent, according to league sources familiar with talks.
As SNY first reported earlier in the offseason, Bradley is seeking a contract of more than four years and $50 million. His camp, which looks at the multi-year deals handed out in the past decade to outfielders like Michael Bourn, views Bradley as more likely to stick in center field and is looking for more.
