Mets infield prospect Dominic Smith didn’t get a ringing endorsement from Sandy Alderson at the recently concluded Major League Baseball general manager meetings in Orlando, when Alderson said the 22-year-old Compton, Calif. product struggled with weight issues and “didn’t win” the first base job after being called up in August. Alderson may already be working the phone lines to acquire a veteran to play the corner infield position. ESPN’s Buster Olney reported Monday that Adam Lind is a player the Mets will “consider” this offseason. Lind played on the NL East champion Nationals this past season, but Washington declined to pick up his second-year option. The 34-year-old played in 116 games in 2017, and batted .303 with 14 homers and 59 RBI. During the postseason — Lind’s first trip to the playoffs in his 12-year career — the lefty-swinging slugger played in just three games and batted .667, but only had three at-bats against the Cubs in the division series, which the Nationals lost in five games.
