According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Mets are not expected to pursue free agent outfielder Michael Bourn.
Some have speculated that the two sides could be a match because the Mets have an obvious need in their outfield and Bourn's market hasn't been as strong as originally hoped. However, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson doesn't want to surrender the team's first-round draft pick in order to sign a free agent. "We've very wary of that," said Alderson. "It's not our M.O."
