Even after acquiring veteran left-hander Rich Hill from the Tampa Bay Rays last week, the Mets remain in the market for both rotation and bullpen upgrades, according to other teams who have been in contact with them.

"They’re all over the pitching market,” said one league source.

Because they do not want to deplete their top heavy and relatively thin farm system, the Mets are more focused on free-agents-to-be than pitchers with years of control remaining on their contracts.
