ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports that the Mets are "eyeing" Rockies utilityman Eric Young Jr.
Rubin's source suggested that sending infielder Justin Turner to Colorado might get the deal done for New York. Young batted just .247/.342/.298 in 229 plate appearances this past year with the Rockies, then had a poor showing in the Venezuelan Winter League. But he still has some upside and might make sense as a buy-low option for the rebuilding Metropolitans. Related: Mets, Justin Turner
