The Mets continue to be engaged on free agent pitcher Trevor Bauer, according to league sources. An agreement is not close, and there are other clubs involved.

Over the weekend, several outlets raised Bauer’s past conduct on social media as a concern for the Mets after GM Jared Porter was fired for misconduct. Obviously, the Mets are aware of this and are vetting all aspects of Bauer’s on and off field performance, as any team would for any significant expenditure.
